What You Need to Know About Ready Mix Concrete

Looking for a San Francisco-area ready mix concrete delivery service? Before you place your order, make sure you know exactly how much, what kind, and what equipment you’ll need to make your concrete job a success.

Type of Concrete

Concrete comes in two different mixes. 1” rock or gravel mix is coarser, while 3/8” pea gravel mix is finer. The biggest difference you’ll want to account for is texture and transportation to your job site. 1” rock concrete mix typically needs to be dumped on site, while 3/8” pea gravel concrete mix can be pumped into the site.

Amount of Concrete

The dimensions of your concrete slab, including the thickness, width, and length, will determine the amount of concrete you’ll need. For reference, a 5” slab measuring 10 x 10 ft requires about 1.5 yards of concrete. To get a more accurate measurement, use an online concrete calculator.

Time Needed for the Project

Keep in mind that many concrete contractors only deliver the pre-mixed concrete. Make sure you’re ready to get to work right away to prevent your pre-mixed concrete from drying out.
