What is precast concrete and why is it so popular here in Central Florida? Precast concrete is an affordable way to have a beautiful retaining wall, Hardscape, Community or HOA Border fence, or Business sign, without the maintenance.
Precast concrete is poured into reusable molds in a warehouse that has a controlled environment. Which means the curing process is controlled to ensure the end product is durable and can last for decades with very little (if any) maintenance. Unlike, on-site poured concrete, which the curing processes is at the mercy of the outside environment.
As a leader in the industry, Florida Wall Concepts receives a lot of questions about precast concrete. Here are a few of the most asked.
