Consisting of only water, cement and aggregate, concrete is one of the simplest and most common building materials used today. Used for building walls, floors, support structures, pavement and many other construction components, the quality of the concrete from local concrete contractors Denver has is essential for the quality and the durability of your building – here is why:
- Structure-related aspects – the role of concrete is to stand up to any weather and to resist any kind of wear and tear for the specific period it is warranted for. Using concrete of inferior quality will reduce the lifespan of the construction and it can also lead to crumbling or even to the collapse of the building, putting human lives at risk;
- Compromised finishes – in many buildings, concrete construction elements play an important design role, therefore the durability of the surface finish is as important as the strength and the resistance of the material used;
- The importance of thickness – the quality of the finished concrete is determined by the composition of the material as well as by the pouring thickness. A layer of concrete that is too thin for the specific purpose of usage also leads to the premature appearance of problems, such as cracking and other forms of disintegration.
