Ready Mix Concrete
Ready mix concrete in Nova Scotia is a mixture of sand, stone, cement and water. The cement and water combine together to make a paste that binds everything together and becomes the foundation of the concrete's strength. Many people often confuse the words concrete and cement. Cement is the powder used to make the concrete. Concrete is the finished product of the paste and aggregate
Because it is durable, economical and has the ability to take many forms, concrete is one of the world's most used construction materials.
