As we noted in our last post about precast concrete strength, curing it on site in the factory is the key to quality control. And in that quality control, we're looking to preserve the material's strength and longevity above all else. The compressive strength of... View More
The short answer is, strong. But why is precast stronger than other forms of concrete?
The answer lies in the curing process. Because precast is manufactured on-site at the factory, all of the challenges that could beset the process are strictly controlled. The biggest of these... View More
