Cement prices in Ghana are generally increasing day by day. This is because most of the cement factories are owned by individuals and they tend to overcharge people. In order to understand how much cement will cost you, you need to know what kind of quality you want for your construction project. For example, if you want the best quality cement for a building that will be standing for decades, then you will have to pay more than if you were doing a small job that won’t last.

What is cement?
Cement is a binder, a substance that sets and hardens independently, and can bind other materials together. Cement is seldom used in its pure form.
One of the most important uses of cement is in construction. It is used to build houses, commercial buildings, sidewalks, bridges and roads. Mixing cement with sand and gravel makes concrete that can be poured into forms to make sidewalks or driveways. Cement adds strength to concrete so it can support the weight of buildings, cars and trucks.
Ghana Cement Company (GHACEM) is a leading manufacturer of cement in Ghana. The company started operations in 1967 by the Norwegian government and Norcem AS and has since then been the major supplier of cement to the construction industry. GHACEM produces several grades of Portland and blended cement.
