Dura-Drive Concrete is a premium concrete mix and as such will provide additional benefits over the standard concrete mix design. Please note that Dura-Drive still requires proper placing, finishing, and curing procedures to perform to its potential and is not a protection against improper concrete practices. If you have any questions about this product or anything else concrete related, please contact your Smith Ready Mix, Inc. representative.
