    On average, delivery takes place 3-4 days after placing an order, but this can vary from region to region and also during times of high demand. Our contact centre will be able to give you a delivery date confirmation when you place your order. We work on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • How much discount do I get for cash on delivery?

    Any discounts would be included in our quoted price and therefore no further discount would be given for cash. If you order regularly from us, it’s best to open a trading account where we can offer you trading terms of net for 30 days settlement from date of statement (subject to credit acceptance).

  • How can I protect my mortar?

    Any watertight container can be used to store mortar. Alternatively, many contractors use plastic sheeting to protect the mortar.

  • How do you calculate the volume of concrete needed?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    Volume can be calculated by measuring the length multiplied by the width multiplied by the height of the area. Allow approximately 5% for wastage.
