FAQs About Concrete and Masonry Equipment
What is the difference between brick and concrete?
Bricks are some of the oldest and most widely used building materials globally and consist primarily of clay, sand, iron oxide and magnesia. They are typically used as structural materials for buildings and aesthetic purposes like landscaping. On the other hand, concrete blocks consist of cement, sand, gravel and water. Uses include load-bearing and non-load-bearing blocks in walls and backing for retaining walls, chimneys, fireplaces and more.
How can I prevent cracks from forming in concrete?
There are a few things you can do during the construction process to minimize the chance of cracking. First, starting with a sound, compact subgrade is essential, and modifying your concrete mix with a lower water-to-cement ratio can also help. Being purposeful with your control joint placement and properly curing your concrete can also reduce the chances of cracking. One last thing to remember is that pouring concrete on frozen ground can also often lead to cracking. As long as your crew is mindful of the above items, you should end up with a sound concrete job.
