Hi Gareth, The early stages seem to happen very quickly. Progress seems to slow down after lock-up. I hope they allow enough time for your slab to cure before installing…

Hi Tash,
Try Richmond Sand and Gravel, Ballina. I think the name of the guy to speak with is Mick. They do a full design, supply, machinery and install package…
