For years concrete has only been thought of as a material used outside for driveways, patios and sidewalks. However, as more and more people realize the benefits and the many different uses for concrete, it has become a popular material to use indoors. Why you may ask? Read below!
There’s a reason why concrete is one of the most used materials to create buildings, bridges, tunnels and dams. Its strength and durability makes it a reliable building material to use. Concrete is one of the few materials that doesn’t weaken from moisture or mold, but in fact gains strength over time.
Concrete is a dense material that does a great job of absorbing and storing heat. Which is a common reason why people use it for floors, countertops and even bathtubs. Concrete reduces temperature swings as it slows the passage of heat moving through it. On top of holding heat, concrete is also fire-resistant. Making it a useful barrier in the event of a kitchen fire.
Did you know that today concrete is the most used man-made material in the world? Furthermore, in comparison to other common building materials, concrete uses far less energy to produce. With the strength, durability and thermal mass of concrete, it has become a vital component in eco-friendly buildings.
