HOW DO I ORDER CONCRETE?
Call 866-689-MUDD (6833)
Tell us the quantity (cubic yards) needed, the type; size aggregate, slump, quality level; any add-ons, i.e. fiber, color, admixtures.
Tell us if there are specs for the project.
Tell us where and when you would like it delivered.
We may be able to help you determine the best mix for your project.HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH CONCRETE TO ORDER?
Take the measurements and click the Calculator tool. Remember to add 10% over the calculated amount to accommodate waste spillage, over-excavation, form spreading or settlement.HOW MUCH DOES CONCRETE COST?
The price depends upon the job and the mix. Please call our Customer Service at 866-789-6833
for a Job Quote.WHAT IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL FEE?
Covers the proper disposal of any returned concrete and wash water treatment.HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED A PUMP?
Our trucks need a clearance of 14’ high and 12’ wide. The chutes extend 12’ behind the truck. If the concrete chutes cannot reach the forms, you will need to either pump or wheelbarrow. Remember concrete is very heavy, so we are not able to pass over some terrain or surfaces.
HOW DO I ORDER A PUMP/HOW FAR CAN THE PUMP REACH?
We can coordinate a pump upon request. Most pumpers carry 200 feet of hose. You will need to order the correct pump mix according to the pump used and the job. We can assist you with additional information.HOW DO I FIND A CONTRACTOR?
We work with the highest quality contractors and will be happy to provided references for recommended contractors.DO YOU HAVE ONE YARD TRAILERS TO PULL BEHIND MY OWN VEHICLE?
Yes, we do. Please call the plant for more details. We recommend a heavy duty ball hitch.DO YOU RECOMMEND DO-IT-YOURSELF?
No, we do not. It is best to have a professional help to finish concrete. We can give you a quote for installation.WHAT ABOUT COLORED CONCRETE?
Color pigments can be blended in the mix for an integrated color throughout the concrete. Please see the color chart tool.WHY IS MY CONCRETE DISCOLORED?
Concrete which is not properly or uniformly cured may develop discoloration. Uneven curing will affect the degree of hydration of the cement. The discoloration may be minimized by proper moisture in the absorptive subgrades, following proper curing procedures, and adding proper protection of the concrete from drying by wind and sun.WHY DOES CONCRETE CRACK?
Concrete contracts and expands with changes in moisture and temperature. The best defenses against cracking is proper subgrade and formwork, moderate slump (less than five inches), appropriate curing according to weather conditions, tooled or saw cut jointing, adequate cover over reinforcement. Discuss jointing and curing methods with the contractor that finishes the concrete.WHAT IS CURING?
Curing is the maintaining of an adequate moisture content and temperature in concrete at early ages so that it can develop properties the mixture was designed to achieve. Concrete should be protected from losing moisture until final finishing using suitable methods, like windbreaks, fogger sprays or misters to avoid plastic shrinkage cracks. Protective measures to control evaporation of moisture from concrete surfaces before it sets are essential to prevent plastic shrinkage cracking.
CAUTION: Fresh concrete can cause severe chemical burns to skin and eyes. Protect your skin and eyes. When working with concrete use rubber work boots, gloves, protective eyeglasses, clothing, and kneeboards. Do not let concrete or other cement products soak into clothing or rub against your skin. Wash your skin promptly after contact with fresh concrete with clean water (vinegar may neutralize alkalinity). If concrete gets into your eyes, flush immediately and repeatedly with water and consult a doctor immediately. Keep children away from dry cement powder and all freshly mixed concrete.
