    Ordering Ready Mixed Concrete is not a precise science however our online Concrete Calculator will enable you to be as accurate as possible. L&S Concrete charge for what is ordered but we DO NOT charge extra to return material not used if you slightly over order. If you under order our batching plant will very often have additional material on board, this can be arranged with the office when we are on site.
  • What happens if it rains heavily or is really sunny on the day of delivery?
    Heavy Rain will not normally affect the delivery of Concrete provided our vehicles remain on firm ground. It is always advisable to cover freshly poured Concrete during periods of hot, sunny weather. Damp Hessian sheets will help to control the curing process. Leaving fresh Concrete to cure in strong sunlight and hot weather is not advisable. Keep it damp and covered for as long as possible.
