The pumping of concrete to many sites allows for the quick and effortless disbursement of the concrete, with less chance of damaging the surrounding areas.  Pumping also allows for the concrete to be delivered to  less accessible places.

Wanganui Concrete Contractors Ltd has access to a fleet of seven pump trucks - both line and boom pumps, meaning that we can always get the right pump, for the job.


Wanganui Concrete Contractors have their own cutting equipment and experienced staff to carry out this important part of your project.

All concrete tends to crack and although expansion cutting does not guarantee that your concrete won’t crack, it will minimize the cracking and encourage the concrete to crack in the “right” places. Our staff are also available to cut concrete for removal if your existing concrete path or driveway needs to be removed, or if you have other concrete areas that need to be cut e.g. a path or driveway that needs to be cut to give you access to pipes or cables under the concrete. Decorative cuts (wider than normal) can be used to give different looks to your concrete area—often used with coloured concrete to give the look of tiles.

Concrete Types

You can have coloured concrete with decorative cuts to give the look of tiles, or you can add different size or types of stones or shells, outline your borders, or have your concrete ground and polished. Exposed aggregate is a popular choice for new and existing homes in both paths and especially driveways, as it doesn’t tend to show marks as much as plain concrete.


Paths and Patios

We won’t lead you up the garden path, although a good path can make a huge difference to a properties appearance, appeal and user friendliness.There is nothing worse than getting out of your car in winter to step in to muddy puddle, or having to negotiate a few stepping stones to get to your clothesline.


Driveways and Vehicle Crossings

Although an expensive outlay, a concrete driveway will add value to your home, and if you compare the initial cost, replacement costs and maintenance for the life of a concrete driveway versus any other alternative, you'll find a concrete driveway is a great investment that requires little maintenance.
