The concrete block is becoming increasingly popular in a wide range of building applications, from residential to industrial. Not only are they highly cost-effective but they also offer design flexibility, durability, energy efficiency and resistance to extreme weather conditions.
From our series of previous articles, it is clear to see that there are many components that get into the building to make it complete. While each one of these have their different roles, they are put together concurrently. Planning is therefore very important to ensure that a harmonious process results. Moreover, the different components are usually put up by different contractors (service providers) thus it amplifies the need for proper planning.
Another great application for concrete is in building driveways. Many people aren’t too happy with the idea of pavers, thinking that they are more expensive or less durable than a poured concrete driveway. In fact, quite the opposite is true because by using pavers and sand, not only is it easier to maintain your driveway, it is also more cost effective.
The industrial sector has also caught on to this trend as concrete paving, specifically designed and manufactured with this segment of the market in mind, can easily handle heavy traffic such as trucks and cranes. Because of the low maintenance required, the total cost of paving is more affordable than tar over the long term.
