Why is precast concrete so popular here in Central Florida? Sure, they are beautiful, have the natural appearance of stone, durable, affordable, needs practically no maintenance, but they can endure the very harsh elements of our environment and still look amazing!
Basically Maintenance Free
Maintaining a fence can get pretty expensive when you take into account the damage and fading from the sun’s rays. Combined with the destruction from the intense rain, rotting and corrosion. These repairs quickly add up! Precast concrete won’t succumb to the environmental conditions. They don’t rot, fade, decay, or damaged by pests. They keep their beautiful look for many, many decades with very minimal maintenance, if any at all.
Stands Up to Hurricanes, Strong Winds, and Fires
Damage from hurricanes, strong winds, and fires can be devastating. Often times when wind or a tree damages a fence, insurance does not cover the expenses,” according to the Precast Concrete Institute. “Precast concrete is inherently resilient and provides excellent protection against high winds, storm surge, and flying debris, among many other high performance attributes. It is often used in FEMA shelters, residential, institutional, public, government, and other structures providing protection and resiliency.”
Eco Friendly, Repels Rot and Insects
Precast concrete is one of the few eco-friendly construction materials on the market, reducing your carbon footprint and making our world a better place.
Unlike other fences, which are susceptible to all types of rot. Such as wood, which if fungus is allowed to grow, makes the wood brittle and dry. If the wood stays wet to long in the rainy season, it doesn’t take long to rot. Then there are insects who love to make their home in fencing materials, wasps, bees, ants, beetles, and termites, just to name a few. But you won’t have to worry about any of this with precast concrete!
