At Childers Concrete Company, we offer a variety of different concrete products to suit a wide range of needs, and we are happy to offer recommendations for which products would be best for your particular project. Our team wants to help contractors like you make each project better than the last, and every good project starts with great materials. To help you choose the right supplies for your project, in this article, we’ll provide a brief introduction to some of our most popular concrete products.
- Reinforced Concrete- One widely used concrete product is reinforced concrete. This type of concrete uses rebar, fibers, or other materials to increase its tensile strength, making the whole structure more pliable and damage-resistant.
- Lightweight Concrete- Another type of concrete product that we provide is lightweight concrete. Unlike standard concrete, which is made of stone or rock aggregate, this product is made of pumice stone. Pumice is much lighter than other stone varieties, making the concrete lighter as well. Lightweight concrete is not used for structural applications, but can instead be used to protect load-bearing concrete walls, provide insulation for water pipes, and even provide some degree of fireproofing.
- Precast Concrete- Another of our concrete products is precast concrete. This term refers more to a different method of manufacturing than to any difference in the concrete’s composition–unlike other types of concrete, which are cast on-site, precast concrete components are made in factories and transported to the construction site for final installation. Our team has the right experience to provide precast concrete components to suit any need, and we encourage you to give them a try.
