Ready Mix Concrete
Ready mix concrete has been the backbone of Southern Concrete Materials for over 50 years. The concrete is ready for use on pavement, block walls, brick walls, foundations and even for gate fittings.
The company offers ready mix concrete to meet the building site’s needs, such as mixes with higher tensile strength.
Southern Concrete Materials manufactures and sells Redi-Rock concrete using precast solutions that rely on reusable mold and forms to be created. The curing takes place in a controlled environment, allowing for strong, durable blocks that can then be:
- Transported to the construction site
- Lifted into place
For over 20 years, the company has been offering precast products for multiple applications, such as septic tanks, sewers, utility vaults, drainage boxes, concrete fencing and more. Delivery is available from 25 locations in North Carolina.
SCM Precast’s lineup of products also includes junction boxes, curb bumpers, well pipes, lids, catch basins, step risers, land markers, concrete pads, anchor bolts, rebar and rod chairs, drainpipes and more.
In the company’s service area, they sell and install Redi-Rock. These walls are often 13-feet high or bigger and each system weighs 1,500 to 2,500 pounds. Infinite color options are available along with two rock faces, if you want the structure to blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment.
Southern Concrete precast aims to help change the way concrete is used in residential and commercial settings.
Southern Concrete Materials is affiliated with numerous associations, including being an NPCA certified plant, the North Carolina Septic Tank Association, Redi-Rock and is an approved supplier of the Department of Transportation for the State of North Carolina.
