Back To Basics: Precast Concrete At Its Core
We’re here to break it down for you.
Before that gorgeous precast panel is carefully slid into place, it’s handmade at the factory via a reliable, strictly controlled process. The big difference between precast concrete and other forms is that precast is poured into molds. These can be wooden, but are most often steel with rebar to secure the material. Once its in place, the concrete is cured, a process that ensures the product is as structurally sound and enduring as it can possibly be.
The big deal about precast concrete, aside from maintaining its quality, is that making concrete this way is much faster, much safer, more affordable, and better for the environment. It’s also easier to customize to product specifications. You can choose colors and textures, and in our case, guarantee that one product works well with another. All of this efficiency means you’ll meet deadlines more effectively because there are fewer mishaps, given the amount of control you have in molding vs. pouring in at the site. You can avoid weather or other environmental conditions that might affect install. And you won’t be contributing to environmental issues, because everything that goes into precasting gets used. If not, it’s right at the plant, able to be repurposed more efficiently.
We could go on about the genius behind making concrete this way, but a quick look at our products will speak volumes.
