Ordering Concrete

For wall mixes, we typically use a 7-9 sack mix with a 2″ slump grout mix. If you think that isn’t strong enough, you’d better think again! When using our product, Wall Builder, you can even reduce the amount of cement needed to achieve the same strengths! Remember, the wetter the weaker. Therefore, when using Wall Builder, you are increasing the plasticity of the mix without adding more water (diluting cement). Dry (low slump) concrete is not only the key to stacking the mix 4 feet tall, but also helps achieve faster set times allowing you to move on to the next job sooner! As the wall starts to tighten, you will be able to stack the mix up to 7 feet tall if it is worked and stacked properly. The use of StoneMakers Wall Builder will also aid in more working time, even though it seems to be setting up, a little working will bring it back to life!

Ideally, the concrete truck will be able to discharge concrete right where the wall is being erected which makes things much easier. However, this is not always the case since a lot of jobs are in tight places, on hills, etc. When this happens a skid steer is the next best choice to help in placement. If neither option is available, a wheelbarrow, shovels, and plenty of help is a necessity to have on site.

Wall Building Guidelines

When the Concrete Truck arrives, first check and confirm the mix delivered matches the ordered mix design as this can greatly effect the outcome of the pour, strength, etc. Then add the StoneMakers Wall Builder in the truck. For every yard of concrete add one gallon of Wall Builder and a quater gallon of water. After adding the admixture, ask the driver to spin the drum for approximately 10 minutes. After the Wall Builder is mixed in, you will notice the slump meter built on the truck will increase .5″ – 1″ and you will have a much creamier mix.

When placing the concrete on the ground, start out only stacking about 1 foot at a time to make a bead. This helps keep the wall from sagging. After laying down the initial bead, go back and stack the wall taller until it is within approximately 6″ from the total desired height of the wall. The reason for this is to create less waste (profit) of concrete and after cutting the bottom section of the wall, you add the leftover to the top of the wall to finish it off to the correct height. Slowly scrape the wall after it begins to tighten as shown in the video until you reach the desired wall thickness. Let the concrete set for about 30-45 minutes depending on ambient temperature, sun, etc until it is firm enough to cut and sculpt without sagging. If you find the wall is setting up too quickly to properly sculpt, carefully scrape the wall until it is completely straight and square. Use the scraped off drying concrete and mix with StoneMakers Wall Finish Mix. To do this, place the concrete on the ground or in a wheelbarrow and remix with a shovel adding Wall Finish Mix as necessary and then plaster and place on the wall to square up and prepare for cutting/sculpting.
