Legit strength certified concrete in Ubon?

Recommended Posts

Having seen a few houses built in the county outside of Ubon, I am concerned about the quality of the concrete used. It seems that most of it is mixed by hand in small batches with no standards with regards to ratios, additives, setup time or anything. Are there recommended concrete companies in Ubon? Do they have a pumper truck as well for pouring around a site without having to manually haul material? Anyone know of any rates? The area is Trakan 45 minutes north of Ubon so I imagine there is a premium delivery charge.

 

Thanks

Eh Eh, I know concrete.

Batches mixed by hand will shrink expand at different rates, leading to cracking. Let alone use vibrators to get the air out. So if you want something strong, you will have to pay up, and make sure the bozos at the other end do not water it down. Concreting is a science, and so is designing a bathroom with a waterproof membrane.

Concrete as been around since the roman times and was mixed by hand until recent years.

 

I don’t know of any buildings falling down because of badly mixed concrete. They normally fall down due to poor design.

 

The concrete is reinforced and carries little weight in compression so it is highly unlikely they will fall down.

 

There are lots of buildings in England built from concrete that are over 100 year’s old still standing

 

Most the houses in Thailand are built using the 4 meter square rule so that is unlikely to happen

 

i wouldn't worry as long as you employ a decent builder

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
