Frequently Asked Questions About Concrete
Concrete is an extremely versatile and powerful construction tool. The following are some frequently asked questions regarding concrete.

What’s the difference between concrete and cement?
Cement is a combination of burned and ground limestone and other natural materials. Cement is mixed with aggregates – or bits of things like stones and sand – and chemicals to create concrete. When water is added to this mixture, the cement blends with the water and hardens over time. Cement only makes up about 10 to 15% of the total concrete mixture.

What’s the difference between stamped concrete and a decorative overlay?
Stamped concrete is created by pouring a thick layer of concrete over an area and then pressing designs or shapes into it. A decorative concrete overlay is just a thin layer of concrete. The overlay is applied to preexisting surfaces and often takes on their form. While decorative overlays are significantly cheaper, they are also easier to damage.

When can concrete be installed?
Since concrete reacts to water – and the mixture of concrete must remain balanced – it should not be installed in the rain. Freezing temperatures and extreme heat will also upset the balance of the mixture. Concrete can be poured in freezing and very hot temperatures, but the concrete will need to be treated with special chemicals. This makes the outcome of the job less predictable and more expensive.

What will damage my concrete surface?
Concrete surfaces, particularly driveways and sidewalks, will become damaged over time. Concrete will expand and shrink as it freezes and thaws, so any outdoor foundation or structure will eventually become damaged. Some corrosives, like acids, can damage concrete, though you can help prevent this issue by selecting concrete that is made to resist chemicals. There are also special compounds that can be applied to the surface of your concrete to help protect it. When dealing with concrete bricks or slabs, remembering that grout and mortar can suffer damage, too.

Some professionals work for companies that specialize in selling concrete blocks, shapes, and slabs. This is a major industry due to the countless contractors that require concrete, cement materials and bricks for building requirements. There are also a number of retail distributors that purchase concrete supplies and materials from manufacturers at discount rates. When you work in this business, you may often deal with materials for building foundations, driveway repairs, patios, and garage floors. As you may know, demolition crews often cut and break concrete foundations, walls, and floors in order to replace them with new ones. This requires special tools, drills, saws and equipment as well.

You will need some training in order to get involved with this industry. Just so you are aware, a great deal of the materials, concrete shapes, and cement blocks you sell will be used for construction purposes. It is essential for the core of a house foundation or patio to be strong and sturdy. This is why metal bars are commonly installed in cement slabs, pavement, and driveways. As a bulk distributor, it is important to know as much as possible about the different sizes, types, and shapes of concrete products you offer. You may also have to answer some questions about cement repair, breaking, or removal services. After all, many building foundations are taken out all the time in order for new construction to take place.

In this field, you may have to work with a number of retail concrete distributors. You may also have to deal with demolition teams, building contractors, and other professionals at times.
