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
