Home and business owners, as well as designers, engineers, and architects in Central Florida can benefit with the evaluation of the life cycle cost analysis of precast concrete. This is both the long and short term cost of the precast concrete project, whether it is a fence, border wall, hardscapes, and retaining walls.
How precast will perform and the ongoing cost expected over time.
Typically, if a construction material is expected to perform well into the future, it is expected to have a higher upfront cost. But that isn’t the case with precast concrete. While the overall quality is higher this doesn’t necessarily mean a higher price tag. Precast concrete is a very strong performer when it comes to durability, long life cycle, minimal maintenance, and beautiful aesthetics.
Here are a few reasons why precast concrete has become so popular:
Less overall maintenance, very durable means less costly repairs
Higher resale value Multi-hazard protection,
high winds and fire resistant Thermal barrier creation
Reduced energy consumption
Scaled back HVAC Installation
Improve insurance rates
Increased security & safety
Adds architectural beauty
Less maintenance, repairs, and long term performance means a reduced life cycle cost
How does precast concrete save you money without compromising on quality?
Forms and Molds
Because the molds and forms are used multiple times, instead of being thrown away after every use like other systems. There is a significant cost savings due to the reduction in materials.
Cost of Transportation
Traditional on site construction of masonry walls need lots of materials, workers, and equipment, such as a several mixer trucks, all transported to the project site. This doesn’t take into account any problems or inclement weather, causing costly delays. Precast concrete panels are completed at the manufacture building (instead of on-site), meaning fewer trips to the project site, less people and equipment.
Since precast concrete panels are made in a controlled environment, materials are easily tested for the highest quality. The attention to the smallest details during the construction phase ensures the final product will look beautiful and last longer. Reducing the lifecycle cost. You won’t have to deal with repairs, maintenance or refurbishing down the road.
Since pre-cast concrete is made from all natural materials, it will not contaminate the soil, it is environmentally safe and non-toxic.
Growing Demand for Decorative Precast Fences
With a variety of warm colors and textures to choose from, the quality and durable precast concrete never needs refinishing. Best of all, they stay beautiful for years to come. Adjoining properties can also enjoy the benefits with the double sided design feature. It’s no wonder why our pre-cast walls are becoming the preferred choice for commercial, residential, and industrial developments.
