The term ‘concrete’ doesn’t refer to a single material. It’s a type of material created by mixing cement and various aggregates together with water. Because there’s no fixed way for concrete to be made, it means the recipe can be altered to fit your needs; although many standard types exist. This makes concrete a flexible substance, but can make it confusing to plan what product you need exactly – it pays to have an experienced readymix supplier.

Concrete is ideal for building houses. Its water resilience means it will protect your projects from flooding. It’s also virtually fire proof, so your homes will be safer. The mass and special high density sound damping capabilities of concrete also make it ideal for sound insulation.
