What is Precast Concrete Walling?

Concrete concrete wallingSo what is the point and benefits of precast concrete walls?

1- Quick Curing Time

As the precast concrete fencing is constructed off site, they are cured before they are installed. This allows the fence to be set immediately upon installation, which will keep the fence from developing cracks or water damage if it rains or weather temperatures rise or fall quickly. Poured concrete has to be poured when temperatures are at between 5 and 32 degrees, and allowed to cure for at least a week. This makes it difficult to find the right time to pour the concrete in some locations, and then allow it to cure without damage.

2 - Cleaner Method

Precast concrete fencing is formed in molds made to specifications of the fencing measurements. This is done off site in a factory setting which helps to keep the mess to a minimum as opposed to poured concrete which is mixed on site.

3 - Appearance

Another advantage of precast walling is that it is carefully measured, and each piece made individually to look professional and very uniform in appearance. Another note on appearance, is that you have options as far as textures and colors. It can be textured or painted, allowing you to match the fence to your homes exterior.

4 - Durability

Precast concrete is made in a temperate setting and allowed to properly cure before installation. It is very durable. When poured concrete is set on site, there is the chance that it will not cure properly, thus the possibility of it having issues later on.

5 - Quick Installation

Once the measurements are taken, the forms are poured and cured off site, then they are brought on site to erect the fence. This goes quickly which allows you to get your project done faster.

Avoiding Damage

paint blisteringWe know the value of precast boundary walls or fencing for our property as it provides security and protection for our family and property.

Country Wide Walling can provide you with a pre-coloured wall which will stay aesthetically pleasing for many, many years, as well as adding value to your property. The colouring is added during the manufacturing process, and saves a lot of time and effort and unnecessary expense.

If you have plain unpainted prefab walling or fencing, you will need to repaint them every 2 (two) to 3 (three) years to keep them aesthetically pleasing and avoid them be damaged by constant bad weather.

We all know that painting the fencing or walling is a time-consuming project, but it is also a very important project, which will extend the life of our boundary security walling or fencing.

We highly recommendnewly painted that the colour be added during the manufacturing process, but we also realize that many walls and fences were erected many years before that concept took root.

The paint will form a barrier between your wall or fence and the elements. This is important as it offers protection, and not only extends the life of your structure, it also helps prevent you having to replace it due to large scale damage from the elements.

When choosing paint for your wall or fence, make sure it is an outdoor paint, as these are specially treated to withstand the effects of bad weather.

When painting, please remember to apply at least 3 (three) thin layers of paint which can be applied by either using a paint brush, sprayed on or by using a roller.
