The Advantages of Concrete
While you may have a vast choice of materials when it comes to your construction products, concrete has long been and continues to be a very popular option. So what are the advantages of using concrete — and how can you put concrete’s convenience to work for you?
Concrete Is Affordable
Concrete is one of the most affordable materials you can use for construction. It’s easy to make from widely-available ingredients, meaning you can acquire it at low cost, despite its being just as solid and durable, if not more so, than many other construction materials.
Concrete Is Flexible
Liquid cement flows freely and can be molded into virtually any shape you need for your construction applications before it hardens. When it does harden, which it does at room temperature, no special baking is required. Weather conditions are also not an issue and you can enhance it with admixtures if you need to.
Concrete Has Great Water Resistance
While water can affect concrete, it is much more resistant to water damage and corrosion than other materials such as wood and steel. This is why it tends to be a much better choice for construction applications that will be underwater, as well as ones that may be subjected to rainy weather conditions.
Concrete Has Great Temperature Resistance
Concrete’s resistance to high temperatures is so much better than wood and steel. It is often used to fireproof steel and is a perennial favorite in a wide variety of high-temperature conditions.
Concrete Is Low-Maintenance
Although you can paint concrete, you do not need to layer it with any kind of protective coating as you would with wood or steel to protect it from the elements and wear. This further adds to the lower expense and higher efficiency of using concrete.
