Concrete Tips


When preparing your site, you need to keep in mind that, like any other structure, your concrete pad will last longer if it has a good foundation under it. Pouring concrete on non-compacted or in poor soil conditions puts your concrete pad at risk.

Because we have mixing trailers, when loaded with concrete our trailers are heavy! Getting your vehicle to safely stop can be a problem. We will not allow anything less than a ½ ton vehicle with a class 3 hitch for towing. We reserve the right to inspect your vehicle/hitch/towing system and make the decision on whether or not towing will be allowed with a particular vehicle. Please call us with any questions, we will be happy to help.


Our concrete contains Portland Cement that contains hazardous chemicals which can cause physical harm to persons who improperly work with concrete.

Working Safely with Concrete

Wet concrete on skin can cause everything from mild redness to third-degree, permanently disfiguring chemical burns. You and your helpers should take these steps:

  • Wear eye protection. Sandy concrete splashes can wreak havoc with your eyes
  • Wear long pants and long sleeves to protect your skin
  • Wear tall rubber boots if you have to wade in wet concrete
  • Wear gloves (rubber gloves are the safest bet)

If your clothes get saturated with wet cement, remove them, thoroughly rinse your skin and change into clean clothes before going back to work.
