Concrete blankets

Woodbutcher's picture

I've got 15  concrete blankets for sale.    They're 6' X 25'    bought new and used once.    They sell for about  $36.00  apiece new,  I'd like to get maybe $300.00  for them. (is that a reasonable price?)    I've gotten tired of calling local concrete guys and getting told they won't need them until winter and call them back then.

I bet the price goes up to $500 when the first cold snap hits unexpectedly and somebody's in the middle of a pour.


 


I'm sorry, I thought you wanted it done the right way.

we must not have same kind. Mine cost about $22 each two years ago. same size you mention, light and waterproof.

Silvered on one side, black on the other, dual bubblewrap type inbetween.

Out in Colorado I saw somew that masons used for stone and block work, chimneys and walls. It was vinyl clad rag wool with a heating element you could plug in like the electric blankes folks use on their beds

Nope, that's what mine are,  just as you described.   You either got a real bargain,  or the price shot up in 2 years,  or it's just a regional price difference.  Aren't you in Florida? or someplace similarly temperate?  


Anyway,  I just need to get rid of them and get them off the books.

At a yard that regularly supplies concrete guys. Sounds like maybe I got a good discount while you paid full retail with inflation increases too.

I've rented mine out for $6 apiece a couple of times now since buying them, so I have little still tied up in them. You might consider doing that, if you have contacts in your area to let the crete guys know about them.

otherwise, good luck.

BTW, I am in Maine.

Good!

BTW, My accountant was just asking me what concrete cure blankets were. The imagination was working overtime in her office trying to figure out what kind of "tool" I was investing in
