Using This Cement
Sand/Gravel Calculator.



This calculator allows you
to determine sand/gravel
required, based on bags
of Portland cement on
hand.

This calculator is based
on 6- 94 Lb. sacks
of Portland Cement per
cubic yard (3000psi).

27 cubic feet equals
1 cubic yard.

Enter Number of bags
of cement on hand
or part of bag as decimal.

This calculator is intended
for approximate guidance.




Working with Concrete
Tips



Only use clean water, sand
and gravel.

Aim for a mix of:
1 part cement, 2-1/4 part sand
and
3 parts aggregate.

Mix the dry cement and sand,
add water, mix, then add
aggregate, and more water
as needed.

Cement mix should look gray,
not brown, and water should
not be freely running on top.

Adjust the mix by adding
more water, cement or
sand as needed.

Concrete must be used
within 1-2 hours of mixing,
depending on temperature.

The sooner you work on it
after pouring, the easier
the job.

Avoid over-working any
poured concrete, as this
will weaken the concrete.

Sand shrinks in volume
when water is added,
so order a little more than
the dry volume.

Best time to work concrete
is early morning or late
afternoon, but be aware
there is a waiting time for
surface water to evaporate.

If you wait too long in the
afternoon to do the job,
it could end up late in the
evening, when you will be
toweling the concrete.

It takes a few weeks to for
concrete to reach 90 percent
of its final strength.

Concrete that cures too fast
will crack, scale, and flake,
and lack strength and
durability.

If the weather is windy or
very hot, cover the concrete
to prevent the quick
evaporation, which can cause
cracks in the concrete.
