Site Preparation

We don’t have a lot of expensive machinery sitting around costing you money,  instead we call in our preferred contractors to do the required works for you. We can arrange for everything from a small dingo or a bobcat up to large 12 ton diggers and trucks — depending on what you need.

Most sites need some form of excavation works to prepare the site for the boxing process, or you may need to have an old driveway removed, the site leveling out or unsuitable fill removed before we can start.Shellrock, sand or other suitable fill is then used as a base before the site can be boxed.If you require additional services—e.g. drainage, landscaping, retaining walls, dumping of debris etc we can arrange this for you , or put you in contact with our preferred contractors.


The team at Wanganui Concrete Contractors Ltd can box anything from your garden path or driveway through to your house or garage floor.

We have experienced team members with backgrounds in the building industry.

After the completion of the boxing the site is then compacted ready for the concrete , because as we say …

“Everything begins with a solid foundation.”

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.


Pumping and Cutting

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.


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.
