For foundations, we recommend using
Gen1 (C12/15) S2 concrete.
We provide foundation concrete that is versatile & durable and can be used for:
Domestic Garage Foundations
Home Extension Foundations
Concrete Wall Foundations
Domestic concrete foundations can also be used for out-buildings such as sheds and summerhouses, and supporting structures such as retaining walls and patios.
For reinforced foundations, we recommend using
RC20/25 (C20/25) S2 concrete.
Concrete is a composite material that works well in compression, but not in tension. We can solve this problem by casting wet concrete around strong, steel reinforcing bars (tied together to make a cage). When the concrete sets and hardens around the bars, we get a new composite material, reinforced concrete, that works well in either tension or compression: the concrete resists squeezing, while the steel resists bending.
For resistant concrete, we recommend using
RC25/30 (C25/30) S2 concrete.
Particularly in underground construction, concrete structures are exposed to loads and wear & tear, which is a result of decade-long use. Concrete is characterised by its outstanding durability. Solutions containing sulphates, such as in natural or polluted groundwater, represent a considerable deteriorating impact on concrete. This can eventually lead to loss of strength, expansion, spalling of surface layers and ultimately to disintegration.
Using our resistant concrete for your foundations will ensure that your building stands strong against all elements.
For garage & shed bases, we recommend using
Gen3 (C28/30) S2 concrete.
A concrete base is the most durable base for a garden building, and its the most popular choice for higher value garden buildings. A concrete base is normally finished a few inches above the ground, which helps to prolong the life of a timber building. Inexpensive steel reinforcing can be placed within the concrete for extra strength at sites with poor ground conditions, for example where trees and shrubs have been removed or if the ground has been built up.
For driveways, we recommend using
RC25/30 (C25/30) S2 concrete.
Benefits of a concrete driveway:
Clean & Attractive Appearance
Safe, Non-Skid Surface
A concrete driveway is a sound investment for your home, and will last for years, unlike other paving options.
