Ordering Quality Concrete For Your Driveway

Ready mixed concrete for driveways is normally specified in accordance with American Standards for Testing and Materials specification ASTM C-94. By following the correct specifications and construction methods, it will help avoid problems such as random cracking.

  • Compressive strength – 4000 psi at 28 days is adequate strength for most climates. Most driveways, sidewalks, patios and porches should contain at least 3000 psi at 28 days.
  • Air content – designate air content with a range of 5% to 7% in all climates. In addition to improving the long term durability of the concrete, air content also improves the workability, without the need for adding water.
  • Slump – be sure to designate slump . For driveway paving, specify 4 inch slump . Slump greater than 5 inches should definitely be avoided.
  • Aggregates – designate the size of the coarse aggregate . Generally, ? or 1 inch is normally used. For a slightly higher fee, chert-reducedaggregate can be ordered to help prevent pop-outs.

For milder climates, lower strengths and air contents may be appropriate. Consult your ready mixed concrete producer for appropriate mixes in your area. Harmon Concrete will typically use a 3,500 PSI mix for our driveways.

Ordering quality concrete for your job can determine how well your concrete project will hold up through the years.
