What Type of Concrete is Best for You
There are many types of concrete. There are just as many or more terms and names for different concrete. This page is dedicated to explaining concrete. Helping educate you about concrete. Which means when it is time to make a decision about your concrete needs you will be in a position to make a well informed decision. The confusion will be eliminated.
Three Simple Ingredients
Aggregate, Cement and Water. The ingredients required to make basic concrete. That is all there is to making concrete. Technically you could get some rock, a bag of cement and use water from your hose or watering can to make your own homemade concrete. Sound fun?
Baking is No Different Than Concrete
Concrete is like baking. Only heavier, dirtier, hotter and harder. The similarities are there though. Let me explain. Baking requires ingredients to create the end product. Same as concrete. Baking requires that the ingredients be mixed a certain way. Same as concrete. Baking requires leaving the ingredients mixed together for a period of time in order to breath or rest. Same as concrete. Baking requires proper temperature and time for the ingredients to bind and form the final product. Same as concrete. Baking can have an exterior icing or coating applied to enhance the beauty. Same as concrete. Baking often has wonderful, beautiful results that friends, neighbors and guests oh and ah over. Same as concrete.
The Professional Concrete Mason
Concrete takes years of experience. Producing wonderful concrete results does not come by chance or luck. Concrete is a wild and tough beast to tame in order to get the results one wants. It takes a mentally and physically tough individual to be a Professional Concrete Mason. It takes a group of Professional Concrete Masons working together to create most of the results that you see. At times it looks easy. A well tuned group will make the concrete project appear as if there was hardly anything to it! Far from the case.
Concrete can go beyond gray. You may typically conjure images of standard gray concrete. Concrete can go far beyond the gray concrete one is drives and walks on. The amazing variety of materials, colors and finishes available are numerous. The technology involved with the colors and additives that are used in concrete is very developed and helps a concrete mason become a concrete artisan. Yes, you read that correctly. Concrete can become works of art right in your backyard, man-cave or drive!
Functional and Fancy
Concrete – useful, beautiful or both! Whatever concrete budget you have there is a solution suited perfectly for you. No matter how pretty the concrete gets – form is the most important aspect. Every concrete project is built with means and methods to provide years of useful life. Just because it’s pretty does not mean that it will not be as tough. Every concrete project is built tough. Which means that all the concrete poured is intended to meant to last. Simplest way to describe is some concrete just happens to be a whole lot pretty than others! Boils down to your wants, needs, desires and budget!
