The Difference Between Precast Concrete Walls and Fences

If you’re considering precast concrete as your material of choice for your next construction project, you may have some questions. For instance, how do you decide if you need a precast concrete fence, or if a precast concrete wall might be the better choice? Here, the experts at Permacast Precast Concrete Fences & Walls outline the differences between the two. Plus, we offer some advice about which style might fit your needs best. After all, even in the world of precast concrete, not all projects are the same and different designs require different products. Fortunately, we’re here to provide everything you need. 

The Difference Between Floodwalls, Levees, and Sea Walls

When flood waters start to rise, it’s too late to start thinking about protecting your city, business or home from flooding. That needs to be done long before the flood waters come along. There are many different ways to prevent the damage caused by flooding, and it’s important to know which type of flooding could most impact the area you’re hoping to protect. Fortunately, Permacast Precast Concrete Walls & Fences knows a little bit about floodwalls, levees and seawalls- all common structures in Florida and Texas, where hurricanes and other extreme weather bring plenty of water to major cities and coastal regions. Here’s what we’ve learned that we hope will help you make a wise decision about flood prevention- before it’s too late. 

Stone-Walled: The New Face of Precast Concrete

The look of stone is all the rage right now, with stone facades and accents trending in home exterior decor. But actual stone can be expensive, not to mention a long-term problem as surfaces weather and erode. Fortunately, Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls has a few alternatives to stone that look great, cost less and last longer than the real thing. Oh, and our customers actually prefer the beauty and simplicity of our precast stone options to the real thing!

Benefits of a Precast Concrete Fence

While many builders tend to choose wood as their material of choice to reduce costs, they may not realize that in the long run they’re actually costing themselves and their customers far more than necessary. A precast concrete fence is not only more cost-effective in the long run, it’s also better for securing a property, extremely durable and attractive. Unlike wood and metal building materials, precast concrete fences are not susceptible to severe weather, the environment or intruders. Its durability means you won’t need to replace a precast concrete every few years, plus the construction and installation process is so seamless, you’ll get it right the first time, every time. Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls has done extensive research and development to find ways to make precast concrete a better option for cost effective production and construction.

Precast Concrete Walls and Hardscaping

When planning the look of your home, residential community or other development, it’s important to consider all aspects of the landscaping. Hardscaping and softscaping are not only equally important elements to your development’s curb appeal, there are also many factors to consider when designing your layout. Here, the experts at Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls explain the differences between hardscaping and softscaping, the pros and cons of each, and how our precast concrete will fit into the mix beautifully. Take a look:

A Stronger Sense of Security

In this day and age, having a solid perimeter around your community is important. Concrete fences and walls keep us safe, protect our property from severe weather and other hazards, and create privacy and peace that residents long for. However, sometimes a fence- even a concrete fence or wall- is not enough protection for the critical equipment within. That’s where ballistic-resistant walls become necessary. Power substations, utility squadrons and other installations designed to keep a city or community running must be protected from crashes, bullets and explosions wherever possible. To answer this need, Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls has a specific line of quality precast ballistic-resistant walls that we’re eager to share with you. Here’s why.

Precast Concrete Fabrication Techniques

In the world of construction, making concrete slabs fit correctly the first time can be a frustrating task. Pouring concrete is a messy process that is often subjected to the surrounding environmental conditions, including weather and the surrounding area. However, when products are pre-designed in-house, the outcome is far more predictable and the amount of waste becomes negligible, creating a more efficient production process all the way around. At Permacast Precast Concrete, we attribute our efficiency and low expense to our adjustable molds, which allow us to create the perfect slab of concrete the first, every time. 

Bringing Stucco and Precast Concrete Together

The use of stucco is as old as the use of concrete in building materials. Both add structure and texture to any wall or building. While the process of creating stucco and concrete are similar, the purpose and results are quite different. However, when stucco is added to the durability of a foundation like precast concrete, the possibilities are innumerable. That’s why Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls brings their knowledge of precast concrete together with stucco finishes for a fantastic and enduring final product.
