Could you give me leads to who is making/selling precast concrete items? I am looking for 2 x 2 ft concrete A/C pads like below. Preferably South West Houston.

Thank you.

Try calling one of the bigger A/C repair companies and ask them where they get them

Grainger sells them. Not sure about the size you want, but you could call and ask or search their website.

Yeah, I want them as patio pavers too. Must be cheaper than the flagstone etc.

A lot of them aren't even concrete, but just a plastered surface.

I guess figures/statues would be plaster. Not sure if they make A/C pads of plaster. It would crack the first day, aint?

If you don't get a contact for the pad. I would contact one of the new home builders and see who they use or drive around Telfair, Alaina, Riverstone, etc. and go to the builder's construction trailer.

It may not be plaster, but the pads on my AC units are not concrete. They are some kind of lighter material. I didn't realize until the yard guys shaved off a corner with the weed eater. Its no biggie, and they hold up just fine, so it may be easier to carry and install on your own if you can find it.

^ HVAC companies will set a compressor on a fiberglass pad if a concrete pad wasn't placed when the flatwork was poured. The picture that the OP posted is larger than 2' x 2' based on the pallet it's sitting on, no home compressor will fit on a 2' x 2' pad.

I've seen concrete pavers close to this size (18" x 18", or so ) at what is now OldCastle stone supply.
