The Benefits of Investing in Top Quality Concrete

Posted on 25th April 2016 by Ever Readymix Concrete

To guarantee you’re getting the best quality mix, concrete can undergo a series of tests to make sure that the mix complies with necessary specifications for your project. A good quality mix will be strong, durable, and easy to pour – making your job much easier than if using a poor quality substance that is likely to cause problems later on.

A good quality concrete mix will have a higher percentage of aggregate than poor quality mixes, which means less cement paste and water is needed. This in turn helps to produce a mix of superior strength with less shrinkage, and more durability. For a mix that will set strongly once poured, with a minimal chance of cracking or breaking, a top quality concrete is the safest solution.


When you invest in higher quality concrete, you’ll be buying from reliable, trusted suppliers. This means that you can rest assured that you are receiving a good mix that will be delivered in the right quantities on time for your project – a valuable thing for many projects which rely on the completion of concrete pouring before they can continue.

Reduced risk

With a good quality concrete mix, the chances of shrinkage and cracking are greatly reduced. Poor quality concrete can set badly, requiring the work to be re-done at a higher cost in the future. To reduce the chances of this happening, investing in better quality concrete will make sure that your concrete sets in the best possible way on the first pour.

Setting / leveling

Poor grade concrete will not set correctly, particularly if laid in a climate that requires a specialist mix. A lower quality mix will likely take more time to set, and can be more difficult to level, leaving the concrete with a poor looking finish.
