Why Should We Choose Precast Fences?

Choosing a material and design to meet your construction needs is not always an easy task, but at Permacast Precast Fencing & Walls, we try to simplify the decision. One of our most amazing products, which is not always spotlighted but maybe should be, is our line of precast concrete fencing options. Our precast concrete walls are astounding, truly. However, we think our precast concrete fences have a lot to offer, too, and might actually offer an affordable, flexible solution to meet your construction needs. 

Aestheticism & Precast Concrete

By now, you already know how amazing precast concrete can be. Besides being cost-efficient, durable, and weather and soundproof, precast concrete is also a more accurate, long-lasting and eco-friendly option for concrete walls and fencing. But choosing a design for your HOA’s concrete walls and fencing will more than likely include other factors. For instance, your residents will care about the look of your community, and your concrete wall or fence is the first- if not only- impression your community makes to passers-by. This is why the professionals at Permacast Walls care about the vast array of options when it comes to aesthetics within precast concrete. And what are those options? Actually, they’re as vast as your imagination and we’re here to help you find the right look for your next project. 

Where Style Meets Design

What is meant by “Form Follows Function” and why does it matter?

This phrase, often heard in reference to architectural design, refers to the purpose of a building. The way the building is constructed should be in line with how it will be used. The building’s purpose, in essence, should be the starting point for the design. This concept was first proposed by Louis Sullivan (1856-1924) in his Chicago-based architectural firm and was generally applied to all things architectural for many years. Until, that is, a young employee of Sullivan’s named Frank Lloyd Wright revised the axiom to say “Form and function are one.” His vision and construction of the Guggenheim Museum is a primary example of this idea. 

So What Else Is Precast Concrete Good For…?

As we already know, precast concrete is an efficient, cost-effective way to create multiple building elements. Since the materials are made in a factory or casting yard, many variables like weather, time, and space can be controlled. This means more accuracy and less guess-work when it comes to a building project. However, have you considered other ways precast concrete can be used to further a project and create quality components quickly? At Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls, we see the possibilities and want to help you see them, too. 

Put Pre-Cast Concrete To The Test

Precast concrete is an innovative way to ensure reliability, durability, and affordability when constructing a new wall or building. But wood framing, steel framing, and site cast concrete have withstood the test of time. So how does precast concrete really compare to other types or methods of construction? Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing and Walls will break it down for you.
