Ready Mix Concrete

Concrete is a mixture of sand, gravel and crushed stone that is mixed with Portland cement and water and is a very versatile product that can be molded and cast into almost any size, shape and color.

Concrete is amazing! Due to the variety of forms and finishes now possible with concrete there is a broad range of projects that can be created from concrete including foundations, walls patios, floors, paths, bridges, skate parks, countertops, sinks and outdoor sculptures. Concrete is often the choice of architects for grand scale cutting edge buildings and structures because of its strength, flexibility of use for various designs, and its moderate cost compared to other building materials.

Concrete provides a sustainable design element that is environmentally friendly, requiring little maintenance and upkeep.

Allied Concrete produces ready mix concrete at its plants in Charlottesville, Staunton, Harrisonburg, Waynesboro, New Canton, Ruckersville, Culpeper, Zion Crossroads, Orange and Louisa which serve all of Central Virginia.
