Did you know that there’s no such thing as a cement sidewalk?
Many people confuse cement and concrete, using their names interchangeably. Though they work hand-in-hand, the two are actually different. Cement is an ingredient of concrete, while concrete is a mixture of aggregates and paste. The aggregates are sand and gravel or crushed stone; the paste is water and portland cement.
Cement comprises around 10 to 15 percent of the concrete mix by volume. Through a process called hydration, the cement and water harden and bind the aggregates into a rock-like mass. This hardening process continues for years. This means concrete gets stronger as it gets older, making it an ideal foundation for sidewalks, driveways, patios and custom concrete landscaping finishing details.
Just like cement and concrete, Hyland Ready Mix works with affiliated companies to complement our services. Since 1998 Hyland Ready Mix has partnered with Alpine Concrete Finishing on various commercial and residential concrete projects around Vancouver Island.
Comox Valley Concrete Finishing
Ron Payne, the owner of Alpine grew up in the Comox Valley and works with Hyland on many concrete projects that need that special touch to finish the concrete to unique patterns, colors and designs. It is not hard to see why Hyland Ready Mix and Alpine Concrete complement each other, Ron Payne says “on time and on budget are the keys to success”.
As displayed in the pictures, Ron’s work is stellar from his innovative and unique stamping methods to the implementation using Davis Colors. Hyland Ready Mix uses Davis colors to transform concrete into unique designs to enhance the landscape and the home. The bold and premium colors are strong, durable and last as long as the concrete and are an attractive upgrade for any concrete project.
