Pumping Concrete: Top Tips

  • Advantages Of Concrete Pavers For A Home Property

    Whether you want to create a driveway or patio, concrete pavers are a great option, offering various benefits. Here are several advantages. Low Maintenance Concrete pavers need minimal maintenance. They only require a sweep or cleaning with a garden hose to remove dirt. Additionally, pavers aren't prone to cracking because they have crevices between each one, which allows them to jostle during minor earth movements and earthquakes. In similar conditions, concrete and asphalt may crack.

  • How Can You Deliver Concrete to a Remote and Difficult to Reach Jobsite?

    When you want to build a sizeable extension on top of an existing commercial property, you may often have to deal with many challenges. For example, the building may be difficult to access if it's in a typical downtown location, and you may wonder whether contractors will be able to complete the work at all. The good news is that when it comes to concrete, various tools can help deliver this vital material to such a site.

  • Exposed Aggregate Concrete: The Perfect Surface For Pub Beer Gardens

    A well-appointed beer garden is a great addition to any pub with enough space to build one. Even a small beer garden can make your pub more inviting to customers, especially during the summer months. However, your pub's new beer garden will need to be built on some kind of hard-standing surface. Exposed aggregate concrete is an ideal surface material for a new beer garden. This unique type of poured concrete has a number of advantages over other common surfacing choices, such as timber decking and flagstone patios.

  • Underground Water Tanks For Cattle Stations: Why Choose Concrete?

    Water is a vital resource for any agricultural operation, and cattle stations are no exception. Even a small herd of cattle requires massive amounts of water to thrive, and larger dairy stations can get through millions of gallons of water in a year. Installing underground water tanks can be a very smart investment for cattle stations both large and small. A sturdy subterranean tank will allow you to store much-needed water supplies to keep your cattle protected against droughts.

  • When It Comes to Rainwater Storage, Below Ground Is Best

    How many times have you suffered a hosepipe ban or found that access to clean water was restricted? If you're like many Australians, the answer is far too often, and you may be thinking about taking matters into your own hands to make sure that you are not inconvenienced in the future. The best way to approach this problem is to install a water storage device of your own and to collect rainwater to fill it up.

Pumping Concrete: Top Tips

Hello, my name is Eric and this is my concrete blog. I am not a concrete contractor but I have recently learnt quite a lot about concrete and concrete pumping. I decided to lay a new concrete drive at my home. The drive is very long and very wide so I needed a lot of concrete. I didn't fancy carrying all this concrete so I opted for a concrete pump. I wasn't exactly sure how to operate this piece of equipment so I contacted a contractor who came out and assisted me. I learnt so much from this guy that I decided to start this blog.
