At Modern Concrete & Materials, as concrete experts we’re here to answer all of your questions. We might even crack a joke or two. If you have a question that is not answered below, contact us, and we will be happy to address it.
On average, Modern Concrete & Materials mobile mixer trucks can carry 10 yards, but this will depend upon how heavy the truck is loaded.
No sweat! Our largest monolithic pour to date is over 600 yards. A common misconception is that volumetric mixers can only be used for small pours. Call us today to discuss your project!
At 4 inches deep, one cubic yard of concrete is needed for approximately every 80 square feet of surface area. If the concrete is deeper or thicker, however, more concrete will be required to cover the same area.
No! Our fast setting, high early strength (HES) concrete mixes are designed to reach 4,000 PSI at 28 days. Just because the concrete sets up faster does not mean it will be weaker.
Construction requires solid ground! If the soil is too wet, weak, or fine, it can present a major challenge. Modifying the soil with a stabilized sand mix design reduces its plasticity, aids in compaction, and increases its strength to support roadways, pipelines, and the like.
Modern Concrete & Materials is committed to servicing the Golden Triangle, including Beaumont, Port Arthur, Orange, and surrounding areas, but we will be happy to discuss concrete pours for any forthcoming projects outside of our general service area.
