Answering Common Questions About Concrete Delivery

Concrete is one of the strongest construction materials in popular use today. If you’re planning a construction project in the near future, chances are you’ll need some concrete at one point or another. Instead of going out and getting the concrete yourself, consider opting for professional concrete delivery in San Francisco. Below are a few answers to some questions you may have about concrete delivery. concrete - delivery

Is my job too big or small for concrete delivery?

You’ll be glad to know that there’s no job too small for concrete delivery. Whether you’re installing a small staircase or a huge patio, we can provide the concrete. If your job requires more than 100 yards of concrete, however, then traditional delivery in a mixing truck probably won’t cut it. But don’t worry, you’ll still get your concrete via a mobile batching plant at your construction site. A batching plant can seriously increase the amount of concrete available for your project.

How should I prepare for concrete delivery?

When scheduling your concrete delivery, choose a time at which you will be ready to pour. Make sure all the preliminary steps have been completed, then confirm with your concrete contractor prior to delivery. On the day of delivery, just make sure the truck can get within roughly 12 feet of the job site. If that’s not possible, then at least make sure there’s a way to wheelbarrow in concrete. When in doubt, have your concrete contractor help you determine the best way to actually get the concrete to the job site.

How much time do I have to pour the concrete?

Once the concrete is delivered to your project site via truck and mixed with water, you will have about 90 minutes to pour it before the quality of the concrete suffers. This is why it’s important to time your concrete delivery correctly—especially if multiple trucks are involved. Reach out to your concrete contractor for help determining how much concrete you’ll need and how you can prevent cracking.
