HomeBlogThe Concrete Supplies You Need as a Contractor

There are quite a few projects that a general contractor gets involved with that involve needing a reliable supplier of concrete products and concrete supplies. Whether you build additions or homes and need to have a slab poured; put in concrete driveways, walkways, or community roads; or do work on parking lots, at some point you are going to require various concrete supplies. Here is a partial list of the items you’ll want to find a concrete supplier to provide.

The Concrete Supplies You Need as a Contractor

  • Wire Mesh– Concrete by itself cannot offer the strength needed for supporting a structure, vehicles, or other situations calling for a robust base. Wire mesh provides the reinforcement needed so that the project has lasting performance and your reputation is assured.
  • Rebar– In addition to wire mesh, the use of rebar is also critical for added support and structural integrity.
  • Concrete Driveway Sealer– For a concrete driveway to withstand leaks from vehicles and other onslaughts, it is important to put on a sealer.
  • Keyway Joints– When working with adjoining concrete, the strongest joint is going to be accomplished with keyway joints. These keep one side or the other from lifting up and creating a trip hazard.
  • Rebar Chairs– Rebar chairs are used to keep rebar in place so that it stays where it needs to be when the concrete is being poured.
