What Exactly is Concrete?

Last updated 5 years ago

Used in the construction of family home and business foundations, driveways, pools, pools, walls, and sidewalk pavement, concrete is more than a household term. It is a household building block. Almost anyone can identify concrete when he or she sees it, but far fewer people can tell you precisely what concrete is.

Concrete has been used as a building material for thousands of years. During that period, the make-up of its contents has changed little. Today, concrete consists of cement, sand, water, and construction aggregate.

Using the right ratio of these ingredients, concrete can be mixed anywhere. Anyone who has hand mixed concrete and purchased ready mixed concrete, however, will tell you that there really is no reason to mix your own concrete when you have the opportunity to purchase a pre-mixed batch. Carrying traditional Portland limestone and other colors of drop-ready concrete, A-1 Ready Mix Concrete can help you tackle whatever concrete-based project you may be working on.
