Irish Cement Add a New ‘How-to’ Video to their Helpful Series

After the successful launch last year of their ‘how to mix concrete’ videos and handy concrete calculator, Irish Cement have now added another ‘how-to’ video to the series. This time the series takes the viewer through a step-by-step guide on how to lay a concrete base for a garden shed.

The short animated video, less than three minutes long, builds on the previous series and provides easy to follow guidance and tips for the DIY enthusiast. Commenting on the new video, Richard Bradley, Head of Technical Marketing with Irish Cement said, “We were keen to add more video content to our website. The previous videos and particularly the concrete calculator proved to be very popular with our bagged cement customers when we launched them last year.

For this video we chose the base for a garden shed because it is a very achievable project for those interested in DIY. The video provides some simple steps to achieving a great result and depending on the size of the shed the base can be scaled up or down. The video contains some common tips and techniques that can be used in other concrete projects.”

Does your customer need to mix concrete for a DIY project at home, like a path or a patio? Are they or you as a retailer unsure about the correct ratio of cement, sand, and gravel to mix?
