Concrete What to Expect

At Carroll’s Building Materials, we specialize in providing on-site concrete mixing, delivery, and pumping services. Our team is committed to ensuring that the concrete is readily available in the desired location, even in hard-to-reach areas.

Understanding the Scope of Our Services

Our primary expertise and service offering at Carroll’s Building Materials encompass the mixing, delivery, and pumping of concrete. It’s important to highlight that our services strictly stop at this point: we deliver and pump the concrete to your specified location.
We want to be absolutely clear that our services do not include concrete finishing work. This task involves the shaping, smoothing, or finalizing the setup of the concrete once it has been pumped. Concrete finishing is a separate trade requiring its own set of skills and techniques.

Given the specialized nature of concrete finishing, we strongly advise that you engage a professional concrete finishing service or a skilled individual for the final steps of your project. This will ensure a high-quality finish to your concrete and a seamless transition from our delivery to the completion of your project.

Important Considerations for Freshly Poured Concrete

It is crucial to understand that freshly poured concrete may exhibit certain behaviors as it cures.

These behaviors include:

  • Discoloration: The color of the concrete may change over time due to various factors such as weather, the quality of the mix, and other environmental factors.
  • Shrinkage: Concrete can decrease in volume as it dries, which can lead to shrinkage cracks.
  • Cracking: As concrete hardens, it may develop cracks due to temperature changes, improper curing, or stress.
  • Crazing: Fine, shallow cracks may form on the surface of the concrete, creating a pattern that resembles cracked glass. This is usually caused by rapid drying of the surface.

These are natural occurrences in the curing process and are not indicative of faulty material or workmanship.

Clean Work Area Requirement

For a successful concrete pour, it’s essential that the work area is clean and free from obstructions, including piles of dirt. Dirt can mix with the fresh concrete and create complications. Therefore, the customer is responsible for ensuring the work area is clean and ready for the concrete pour.
Non-returnable and Non-refundable Nature of Concrete
We would like to remind our customers that due to the specific nature of concrete, it cannot be returned once it has been mixed and delivered. Therefore, we cannot offer refunds for any concrete provided.

Your Responsibility

As our valued customer, you will be responsible for arranging all necessary concrete finishing work following the delivery and pumping services provided by Carroll’s Building Materials. This will ensure a smooth transition from our delivery to the finishing phase of your project.

Agreement to Terms

By engaging the services of Carroll’s Building Materials, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and accepted these terms and conditions. You accept that concrete can exhibit natural behaviors such as discoloration, shrinkage, cracking, and crazing, and that you understand the non-returnable and non-refundable nature of concrete.

Governing Law

This agreement and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, Pinellas County.

Our Commitment

We believe in clear, transparent communication and strive to ensure you fully understand the scope of our services. By outlining these terms, we aim to help you prepare for the next steps of your project after our delivery.

If you have any questions or need further clarification on our services, please do not hesitate to contact us.
