The Leader in Precast Concrete Walls & Fencing

City Spotlight on Orlando

While Orlando is universally known for its abundance of tourism and attractions, there is actually so much more to discover about this city. Located in the heart of Central Florida, plenty of Florida residents make their permanent home in or around the Orlando area, while many more winter residents spend up to half their year in the area. Several colleges and universities have made their homes here as well, bringing sporting teams and fans along with them. And while many locals find plenty to do besides the world-renowned attractions, they do often spend a fair amount of time in theme parks, themed restaurants and themed shopping districts, so there is always something new being built or improved. Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls knows how important the construction industry is in such a growing city. Since we’re Florida builders, too, we’re already familiar with the city of Orlando and its codes, regulations and permitting laws. Now we’re excited to show this great city to you, too!

What the 2020 Hurricane Season Can Tell Us

The 2020 Hurricane season rocked the Gulf Coast states and much of the Atlantic coast, with a record-breaking 30 named storms this season. 12 storms made landfall in the continental United States, specifically in Miami, Houston, and several areas of Lousiana. Moreover, meteorologists are predicting more abnormalities like this in the coming years. So what does this mean for the precast concrete industry? The experts at Permacast Precast Concrete Fencing & Walls have some excellent thoughts about how to be prepared before next year’s massive hurricane season. 

The Scientific Discovery that Will Change the Future of Concrete

It doesn’t seem possible that more changes and developments can be on the horizon in the world of concrete, but that’s exactly what’s happening. Thanks to recent bio-research, an organism was discovered that creates its own anti-freeze proteins, allowing it to live in sub-zero temperatures. Researchers have now found ways to emulate this organism, creating a polymer molecule with anti-freeze abilities that will keep concrete from cracking and crumbling when the temperature drops. At Permacast Precast Concrete Fences & Walls, we’re very excited about what this means for the future of our industry. Are you ready for concrete that lasts winter after winter no matter how far the temperature drops? Keep reading- you’ll be amazed!

Reverse Storm Surge

Surviving a hurricane or two can definitely make anyone feel like a storm expert. After storm prepping, stockpiling food, water, gas and batteries, and hunkering down during the worst of the high winds and pounding rain, most residents feel empowered to face the next hurricane season with a certain level of expertise. This is because, even though hurricanes are big, powerful storms, they’re also predictable and can be anticipated. But what do Florida and Texas residents do when even the predictable storms act, well, unpredictably? Permacast Precast Concrete points to the unusual phenomenon that occurred in Florida in 2017 as an example of even predictable weather sometimes surprising us. During Hurricane Irma, the superstorm that swept Florida and sent thousands evacuating in the middle of the night, Tampa Bay experienced a reverse storm surge that intrigued locals and baffled scientists.
