Money Saving Concrete Tip
May 7, 2010
Reducing the amount of water used in the cement to water ratio will save you money.
“Since the quality depends mainly on the water to cement ratio, the water requirement should be minimized to reduce the cement requirement (and thus reduce the cost).” concreteinformation.com
Take these steps to reduce the water and cement requirements:
- use the stiffest mix possible
- use the largest size aggregate practical for the job.
- Use the optimum ratio of fine to coarse aggregate.
