Why are more and more housing developments, architects and engineers in Central Florida are choosing precast concrete for their boundary walls, fences, Hardscapes, and retaining walls. Because precast concrete is durable, last for decades, and needs very little maintenance, which makes them economical and economical choice. They can also be produced quickly, they are easy to install, and can stand up to hurricane strength winds and fire resistant. Most importantly, they look amazing! In short, they are a great investment.
One of the biggest advantages of precast concrete is the price. Concrete panels are made in a controlled environment, maximizing the curing process. Since the molds used to make the panels are reused thousands of times, it reduces the cost of the final product.
A huge advantage of precast concrete is that it does not pollute the environment, it also doesn’t emit any toxic chemicals, and it is easy to recycle. The raw materials used to make these beautiful walls and fences are sand, gravel, and stones. Since concrete has a high thermal mass, it is able to absorb and store thermal energy. This means it won’t overheat in our high Florida temperatures.
Long Life Advantage
Precast concrete has a significantly longer lifespan over traditional materials. Just look at the Egyptian and Chinese buildings, made from precast concrete centuries ago that are still standing today.
Concrete has come a along way from boring grey. Pre-cast concrete has the rich, elegant look of cobblestone, natural look of marble of Durango, the organic, rustic appearance of Ledgestone, and architectural elements of inlaid marble and semi-precious stone of Stucco. With a variety of warm colors and textures to choose from, the quality and durable pre-cast concrete never need refinishing and stay beautiful for years to come. Adjoining properties can also enjoy the benefits with the double sided design feature.
