Precast concrete is a kind of concrete that is manufactured in a controlled environment under specific conditions. The process involves a wet-cast method and precast form concrete materials including tilt-up panels, slabs and wall panels.
Precast concrete offers a range of advantages for residential owners. These benefits are embedded in precast concrete panels in the form of design flexibility, safe installation and improved strength.
The Precast Concrete Institute supports precast concrete construction as a whole-house building material after multiple hurricanes hit the United States. The material is safe to use for harsh weather conditions due to its resilience.
Precast concrete has a multitude of advantages. Here are some to consider for your next residential project.
Stability and Durability
Precast concrete structures tend to strengthen over time. Homeowners can design exterior cladding panels to bear the structural load and reduce the need for other structural components.
The material fails to show signs of deterioration over several years, minimizing maintenance. It can easily withstand wear and tear without losing any of its properties.
Precast concrete comes with ease of installation as the production occurs off-site in a controlled environment. The wall panels are manufactured in advance, thereby cutting down the construction time, also providing a cleaner and safer construction site.
All precast concrete structures provide a high level of insulation during the daytime. The concrete walls absorb the heat of the sun and release it at night, resulting in less energy usage inside the home. This thermal efficiency can further be enhanced by using foam sandwich panels.
Precast concrete is well-suited for all kinds of weather conditions. Whether you’re living in freezing temperatures or in the scorching heat, the material can withstand all types of environmental elements including hurricanes, floods or storms.
The material of precast concrete is thick and strong, making it an excellent choice for sound proofing. Buildings prone to loud sounds can limit noise pollution with the help of precast concrete wall panels.
