The intense thunderstorms, heat and humidity, can wreak havoc on just about any outdoor material, except concrete. It doesn’t fade, discolor, warp, or crumble. It can even withstand hurricane strength winds and is fire resistant.
Insects and rodents are a big issue here in Florida, but they are no match for precast concrete. Wood and even masonry fences and border walls make the perfect home for all types of insects, ants, beetles, termites, wasps, and bees.
Those aren’t the only types of organisms that love this type of environment, fungus and mold causes rotting. Which can end up causing extensive damage, but just like insects, they don’t affect precast concrete.
