Concrete has been a leading building material for over 2,000 years. No other construction material provides the strength, durability and economy of concrete. Modern ready mixed concrete also provides remarkable flexibility in meeting the needs of challenging placement and sustainable design considerations. We are fortunate in the concrete industry to work with an outstanding product that has served mankind for ages and yet is advancing rapidly.
Hood River Sand trucks are able to safely deliver material used in all phases of the construction process and our commitment to the safe and timely operation of equipment has allowed us to do so for over 75 years without major mishap. Our fleet of pump trucks allows us to quickly deliver material for foundations and walls with pinpoint placement, minimizing waste and reducing labor costs. The incorporation of fibers and colors at the batch plant create strong driveways, patios and floors that can create diverse, long-lasting presentations. The application of stains and hardeners has created exciting new finishes that rival tile and rock installations at a fraction of the cost. The advent of modern admixtures and processes allow us to apply concrete for interior uses including heated floors, countertops, and even furniture.
We proudly support these diverse innovations and welcome homeowners and craftsmen to explore their ideas and creative concepts with our team of experienced professionals. Our computerized batching systems, complex array of admixtures and colors, and other concrete additives and materials allow us to address the entire spectrum of concrete manufacture being employed today. Our late model fleet of mixers and pump trucks provide pinpoint delivery throughout the Columbia Gorge and the communities surrounding it. Our portable concrete batch plants allow us to place production facilities in even the most remote locations as we have worked on projects on islands in the middle of the Puget Sound, on mountains in Oregon, Washington, and Montana, and on numerous wind farms in the eastern plains.
