Concrete is used for a wide range of construction projects because of its many strengths and benefits. Rather than being poured on-site, precast concrete is prepared before being transported to the worksite and lifted into place. Kohala Coast Concrete & Precast is a supplier of this product for projects in and around Kamuela, HI. Consider a few of the benefits of working with the precast material to decide if it’s the right choice for your project.
Reasons to Choose Precast Concrete
1. Schedule Control
Pouring concrete on-site can delay your timeline: if there’s poor weather, the schedule must be adjusted, and after it is poured, cleanup must be done. Because a precast material is manufactured off-site in a controlled environment, it can be poured in any weather, and the easy installation leaves little cleanup.
2. Quality & Durability
Precast concrete tends to be a better investment than a cast-in-place material. With the reduced labor cost and improved control over its manufacturing, you can expect improved quality for a comparable price. The thorough and controlled curing process makes the material fireproof and increases its lifespan.
Concrete doesn’t have to be the boring, flat gray surface that most people expect. Precast options come in a wide range of colors, finishes and shapes. A manufacturer can even cast in other materials such as stone or brick so you don’t have to install it on-site. This flexibility allows you to create a strong and beautiful surface.
4. Sound Proofing
The unique manufacturing process makes precast concrete more dense than other cast-in-place materials. This means it is effective in noise reduction, which makes it a smart choice for multi-family residential units or other projects where noise is a concern. It can limit noise coming in from the outside and from floor to floor.
From larger projects like basements to smaller projects such as walkways, precast concrete is a smart choice.
