Building a wall may seem simple enough, but a standard wooden framed wall isn’t always up to the task of securing what you need to hold up. If you have a large building project then you may need to invest into serious structural timber or even steel beams to make sure that the lower levels are secure enough to hold the weight of the rest of the building. Instead of stressing out about the increased cost of these intense engineering materials, make life easier for yourself and look into having concrete walls constructed instead. Concrete is one of the strongest material for its weight that you can get, not to mention how simple it is to install and the cost per square foot of the material. If you aren’t sure if concrete is right for your project, then give us a call and speak to our design team for clarification.
Solid, Sturdy Construction
A wooden frame wall may be quick and simple to build, but you can never beat the solidity and sturdiness of a concrete wall for your project. Concrete gets poured and sets quickly in place, in almost any shape that you want, and before you know it you have a solid wall that can take an immense amount of weight without needing to pick up a hammer or nail. If you’re worried about the final appearance of your concrete wall, drywall can still be installed over the top so that it looks like any other wall in your home.
Fast Build Times
Sure, a wooden wall can be built in a couple of hours, but with not a lot more time required you can have a concrete wall that will withstand 10 times the weight at considerably less than 10 times the cost. Concrete is one of the cheapest materials you can get considering all the bonuses that it has, so when you’re building structural walls then make sure that you consider concrete walls before you begin your project. Our Orange County team can discuss your requirements and explain all the benefits too if you aren’t sure about it.
Our design team strives to think 2 steps ahead, planning for any design features you may want for your wall to get the most versatility and beauty out of it. But the great thing about concrete walls is its flexibility: you can still add aesthetics to it, such as a stamped concrete overlay, even after it's finished.
Indoor and Outdoor Applications
The greatest part about concrete walls is the versatility, without much difference in construction technique a wall can be made to be an internal wall or an external one when made in concrete. So whether you’re building walls inside your home or retaining walls in your backyard, consider concrete as your go to material for your project.
