Concrete prices


Mixed Farmer
Has anyone had any done recently?

How much has it gone up by?

Got an outside padded area that needs doing and was wondering how daft prices have got...

Thanks in advance


Laying a new a floor in a house extension, needs about 1m3. Enquired out of interest, a local 'mix as you go' wagon is about £170. Not that off from buying big bag of aggregate, cement and paying the builder to do it with a Bell mixer. The present Mrs C suggests we do it ourselves....:rolleyes:

I think concrete/ aggregate companies are like fertiliser manufacturers, they pitch their price at what the market will stand at that time. But with concrete it’s a bit more regional.
As always we farmers are price takers not price makers unfortunately..
In our part of the world readymix price starts with a 9 for any mixes because there is so much construction going on round and about.

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
