Location: Largo, FL

Ready Mixed Concrete

Preferred Materials is proud to announce the introduction and use of our new product, ColorReady Vibrant LongLife™. This product looks similar to concrete produced using white cement, only at a much lower price. Preferred is able to achieve bright, vibrant colors for the first time ever at economical prices. This concrete mix design also contains a proprietary chemistry which makes the concrete color-fast for years to come; without the need for a sealer and without the need for annual cleaning or re-sealing.

The benefits of ColorReady Vibrant LongLife™ were a perfect complement for The Florida Botanical Gardens’ needs. The Florida Botanical Gardens desired a peach-colored concrete for use in a new exhibit. The color peach was important in order to honor a large donor, the Peach family, who they wanted to commemorate with this peach-colored walkway. Preferred Materials is proud to have partnered with Joswig Construction of Tarpon Springs, Florida on this project. ColorReady Vibrant LongLife™ will enhance the beauty of the gardens and will prove to be a great way to thank the Peach family for their contribution to the gardens.
