What is Cement?
Are you searching for ‘Cement Barry?’ and wondering which company is the best option to go for in order to complete all projects to the highest standard. Cement is one of the main ingredients of concrete and is like the flour when making a cake- the glue that holds everything together. Cement helps to create a foundation for ready-mix concrete which we use for hundreds of clients. It is is a cost-effective building material that can be used for a number of purposes.
What is Concrete?
Concrete is a mix of aggregates such as stone and fluid cement. At Green Circle Concrete, we can provide you with a range of different ready-mix concretes across the Barry area. Call us today on 01446 742 340 and one of our team will be able to provide you with additional information on our concrete, aggregates and cement Barry services.
Concrete is hugely versatile within a range of different sectors whether it be for domestic or industrial projects. We accept nothing less than the best and go above and beyond to support all our customers. In this article, we will discuss why you should do your best to avoid low quality concrete, the types of concrete and why choosing us is the best option.
Concrete manufacturers have been known to purposely try and save money by cutting corners when it comes to the concrete process which has detrimental impacts on the environment and can certainly cause long-term damage to our atmosphere.
Concrete is probably best known for its use as a hard wearing, strong and sturdy material. It is often for walkways and pavements, in buildings, bridges and dams. Because concrete is used for structural stability using a low-quality concrete can mean that it will not only last for a shorter time but it can also have a harmful impact on others. It is obvious that in any project, you will want to be using the best quality materials that you have access to. Low-quality products are never a good idea, even if it is tempting because of the lower cost. Low-quality concrete is likely to have been created using a weaker combination of aggregates which could put the structural integrity of the concrete at risk. Imagine knowing a bridge was built using low-quality concrete- I’m sure you would think twice about using it every day.
Types of Concrete
Volumetric Concrete: It can often be difficult to order the right amount of concrete if you are not quite sure of your measurements or the amount you require, we can help solve this. With our volumetric mixer trucks, you never have to worry about ordering too much or not enough. Our team will mix the exact amount your require for you at the destination of your choice. The truck has a mixer onboard that can be used to mix on the job site, so that the exact amount of concrete that is required can be produced. This means there is no waste or concrete to dispose of, making it much more efficient, and also so you do not have to pay for concrete that you don’t need!

Commercial Concrete: We understand that commercial projects have much stricter guidelines for completion time, which is why we ensure the organisation is up to scratch. Our volumetric trucks are quick to mix concrete with and we can prepare the correct amount that you require on site. For commercial projects, we will just need the specific amounts and timescale that you require the concrete in, so that the day that we come to deliver your concrete can go to plan and we can efficiently move forward with the project.
Domestic Concrete: Concrete is often used in the home and garden area. It is primarily used as a building material in the construction of walls. It is also used as a base for sheds and outhouses. They are great for creating a contemporary and modern feel whilst also being highly durable and practical. Concrete blocks are often used in the outdoors due to their waterproof properties and resistance to sudden weather changes. One of the most common uses of concrete is for driveways and paths. Concrete blocks can be used for walling around your driveway or to create an additional space in your driveway. You can also use concrete blocks for restoration projects such as repairing walling.
We have a stock of ready-mix concrete, ready for collection every day of the week except for Sundays. Collections are available from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday, and 7:30 am to 11:30 am on Saturdays.
