CONCRETE

Concrete can take on varying shapes, colors and specifications.

Ready-mix concrete is individually batched specific for your needs.  Whether you're pouring a foundation for a home, a new driveway, sidewalk or walls... we have you covered.

Here's what you need to know.

Ready-Mix

Concrete is measured in cubic yards. We have a calculator located below if you need help.  Click here to jump to it.

We utilize Master Builders Solutions admixtures to ensure you're getting the best product possible.  Admixtures are added to concrete to change different properties, such as the workability, stability, and more.

We do offer options for Master Builders Solutions micro and macro fibers and colors.  Depending on your color selection, it may be possible with little to no lead time.

For placement guidance and technical data sheets, see below. 

Ordering

Many factors are involved in pricing concrete.  We will need to know:

  • What your project is

  • Strength requirements

  • Quantity of yards needed

  • Address of delivery

  • Desired date/time of delivery

  • Plans for offloading 

 

To order, call our office at

(218) 248-2130 ext 2.  Orders are not taken by email.

Credit card information needs to be provided at the time of ordering.  Contractors may establish credit here.

Delivery

Our trucks are based out of our plant in Aurora and are rear-discharge and haul a maximum of 10 yards per load.  The trucks are approximately:

  • 32 feet long

  • 8 feet wide

  • 12.5 feet high

  • 16 foot chute length max

  • 70,000 pounds

Remember, these trucks are heavy! A driver may choose not to drive on unstable ground.

  

In order to be on time for our other deliveries, we ask that trucks are off loaded in a reasonable time.  We consider that to be 5 minutes per yard.

ABOUT

Red Top Construction was established in 2012 by Ben Dickinson starting as a custom crushing business that expanded into aggregate sales, delivery and site preparation.  We supply aggregates to home owners, local municipalities and contractors through loading materials out in the pit, as well as transporting.


Red Top Ready-Mix, owned by Taylor Dickinson was established in 2022 as a ready-mixed concrete business.  Many months were spent refining our mix designs, meeting with vendors and seeking education.  In July 2023, the first yards were poured from our plant.  ​

 

Red Top Construction proudly employees union operators through Local 49 and Red Top Ready-Mix is a Minnesota Certified Targeted Group business, as a women owned business.
