Hopefully this isn't a repost, did a search but couldn't find anything.

Just back from B&Q in Newtownabbey, NI and they have an offer on alot of concrete products. Basically if you buy 5 or more you get 25% off. I'd assume this is nationwide.

For anyone building a fence they have Hanson postfix @ £4.68 per bag (Homebase £4.99 per bag), so if you buy 5 or more they work out at £3.51 per bag.

Anyone who has used this stuff before will know how good it is and easy to use.

Voted cold as this is a expensive compared to going to a concrete block yard and buying loose block mix for around £30 per m3
They will sell you as much or as little as you need and if you know the guy at the weigh bridge then it`s even cheaper:)
#3
£30 per m2??? m2 is an area not a volume

This is a good deal if you are buying low quantities or doing a small job: open bag, dump in hole, add some water. No need for mixing or any other prep.

Apologies

£30 for a cubic metre of concrete mix???

Link me up please :)
#6
Read again!!
I stated loose BLOCK mix
#7
which requires what preparation to be ready for fixing posts?
#8
Voted hot, as we should be voting on the price of the product, not voting cold because an alternative method of fence fixing is available.
#9
I stated there is an alternative product,much cheaper with less preparation available
It comes semi dry,so it`s ready to throw into your post hole
#10
Please post a link to a company that will do BLOCK mix or whatever that i can use straight away (with no prep bar adding water) for £30 a cubic metre. As I will return this to B&Q asap. Or may be u can't?
#12
how long does BLOCK mix take to set?
#13
Couldn`t be exact but I`d allow 12 hours.
Believe me m8,I`m not trying to pick holes in your post,just stating that block mix is far cheaper than any pre-packed mix.
Just make sure you don`t get too much as you`ll have a job getting rid of the surplus.
BTW
Block mix is what concrete block manufacturers use to make their concrete blocks which are used to build houses etc. and is always readily available immediately at any depot.
We use this stuff a lot at work, for steel hanging posts for steel gates and barriers weighing 1/3 tonne upwards

Funnily enough I used some of this at the weekend. It is good stuff and simple to use. All you do is pour the whole bag (1 bag per post) into your hole and pour 2 litres of water over it. Mix it up a bit then leave to dry.
They have 2 different varieties. One which dries in about 10 minutes and one that dries in about 20 minutes. Both the same price.

Fair enough m8. I was a little puzzled by your post and reason for voting cold. As one of the other posters stated, this is a good price for this product. Its handy and sets fast, and ideal for small jobs. As I have a mid-sized job, I am interested in your suggestion and appreciate the input :)
#16
No worries m8
1 disadvantage I see now,is the setting time
Good luck with your project:thumbsup:
