If you have a project around your home that requires you to use concrete, it can be extremely useful to know the different types of concrete dry mix to ensure that you use the right mixture for your particular needs. There are many different types of concrete, and the type that will be required will depend on a variety of factors, including what the purpose of the concrete is, how strong it needs to be, what kind of weather it will be exposed to, and how fast it needs to set. At Country Lumber, we provide a wide variety of types of dry mix concrete for all kinds of applications.

Different Types of Dry Mix Concrete

The best type of dry mix concrete to use for any job will depend on what kind of benefits are needed. Some of the different types of concrete include:

Regular Concrete

The most common type of dry mix concrete comes in a variety of brands and names, and the general term is regular concrete. Regular concrete is used for all kinds of things, from setting fence posts to paving sidewalks, patios, and driveways,

Sand Mix

When you need a concrete dry mix for patching or filling in gaps, sand mix is the way to go. It is commonly used as a grout for outdoor tile or masonry as well.

Fast-Setting Concrete

Similar to regular concrete, fast-setting concrete is often used to install fence posts, mailboxes, swing sets, and other such fixtures. It typically hardens in 20-40 minutes, making it ideal for situations where time is a concern.

Mason Cement

Mason cement is designed for commercial grade use, and it is mainly used to set bricks, blocks, and stones in place for construction purposes.


Mortar is similar to mason cement in that it is designed to set masonry in place, but it typically sets faster, making it useful in patching and filling as well as for setting bricks.

Anchoring Concrete

Anchoring concrete contains an epoxy solution that bonds to surfaces with high tensile strength. This makes it useful for applications where a structure needs to be anchored to a concrete or masonry surface.
