Things to consider when placing a concrete order:
Size of Coarse aggregate – Consider the reinforced steel and dimension of the concrete application. Generally, the maximum size of coarse aggregate is ¾ to 1 inch.
Slump – This term refers to the measure of the concrete’s consistency. This should be indicated with the job – generally, the slump range is 3-5 inches.
Entrained air – This type of concrete should be used if it will be exposed to freezing temperatures. All exterior concrete will be entrained air – please notify dispatch of your concrete application.
Performance requirements – It is important to let us know this information to better determine the composition. This way we are best equipped to make the correct mixture to fit your needs.
Quantity – Concrete is sold in an unhardened state by volume in cubic yards. The volume, also referred to as “yield”, is calculated by density or unit weight.
• 1 Cubic Yard = about 4,000 pounds
• The typical capacity of our truck mixer = 10 cubic yards.
Scheduling delivery – Notify us if there are any schedule changes and keep in mind weather conditions. Make sure that the truck will have proper access to the location. Keep in mind the weight of the truck (excess of 80,000 pounds) and job site maneuverability. New Berlin Redi-Mix is not liable for damages to sidewalk, driveway, or any property beyond the curb line.

Concrete use in homes was once confined to functional fundamentals: foundations and basements, sidewalks and driveways. But innovative products and a new level of craftsmanship have expanded applications beyond the basement.
- Foundations and basements
Decorative Concrete – Shape, texture and color convert ordinary concrete into a design element. Stamping tools create the look of slate, stone or brick. Add color by mixing mineral pigments into the concrete. For an exposed aggregate, finishers brush away surface mortar to reveal the stone or gravel in the concrete mixture.
Beyond concrete’s traditional values of strength and durability, modern concrete buildings offer economy, versatility and architectural freedom. Moreover, they meet today’s demands for green or sustainable construction.
Structural concrete – From foundations, columns and floors to load-bearing walls, concrete is at the core of building design and construction. And the key to these structural systems is high-strength concrete. Once limited to low-rise buildings, dramatic increases in strength propelled concrete structures to the tallest skyscrapers.
Architectural Concrete – One aspect of concrete’s versatility is the ability to act as both a structural element and an architectural finish. Beyond its role as a load-bearing material, concrete can take almost any form, texture and color to enhance the appearance of a building.
