Quality Assurance

All of our concrete plants utilize state-of-the-art computerized batching systems. Every cubic yard of concrete is batched to within one percent tolerance of the actual mix design. The computer will not allow you to load a batch of concrete if it is out of tolerance. The correction must be made before allowing discharging of the ingredients. The theoretical and actual batch weights of every load of concrete are stored in the computer for later reference. From these numbers, we can control inventory by tracking all incoming deliveries and outgoing material used. We know what our material on hand is at all times.

With the use of microwave technology, the computer will automatically correct for free moistures in all of your aggregates. This ensures proper yields and slump control.

We have our own certified materials and concrete laboratory. Our professional team of technicians sample concrete specimens and aggregate materials on a daily basis. They perform field testing as well as sample testing to help customers that have specific concrete mix designs or special needs such as decorative, low or high strength or special placement.






FAQ

Q: Why does concrete crack?

A: Concrete, like all other materials, will slightly change in volume when it dries. In typical concrete this is about 1/16 of an inch in 10 feet. The reason that contractors put joints in concrete pavements and floors is to allow the concrete to crack in a neat, straight line at the joint when the volume of the concrete changes due to shrinkage.
