A DIYer can usually get away with a wheelbarrow and concrete mix for the small projects that they tackle around their home. As a contractor, however, your projects are far too large and complex to not use ready-mix concrete instead. It probably wouldn’t even enter your mind to do it any other way, but on the off-chance you might be thinking about mixing on-site, this article delves into why you really should consider ready-mix concrete for all your projects.
- You can purchase the exact amount you need. If you were to handle the mixing on-site, you’ll most likely overestimate so that you don’t run short. You won’t have that issue with a ready-mix concrete supplier.
- The project will be done quicker. It takes quite a bit of time to perform on-site mixing, whereas a delivery of ready-mix concrete happens efficiently.
- Less margin of error. It can be really easy to have variances when you mix on-site. A company that has mastered ready-mix concrete will deliver consistent high-quality results time after time.
- No need to invest in on-site mixing equipment or materials. You won’t have to have each component of the concrete delivered, store them until needed, or buy the equipment needed to do the mixing. Your ready-mix concrete is poured into place, allowing for a cleaner job site and less fuss.
- Reduced labor costs. Not only will you need fewer people since you aren’t mixing the concrete yourself, but you also forego the need for those trained in that process.
