What Can You Expect From Concrete Services For New Jersey?
Concrete is a truly wonderful material and we should all be grateful to the Ancient Romans who first figured out how to make and use it in a rudimentary manner; There is even a Latin word that provides the root for today’s word and that is “concrescere” which means to grow together. The raw materials for construction concrete are a composite mixture of gravel and sand (aggregates to provide strength and durability); these are bound together with the “glue” that we call cement (usually powdered, treated limestone rock; known as Portland cement); water is used to mix everything together and, as the mix dries out (or “cures”); it “grows together to form a hard, stone-like, mass. The Colosseum in Rome itself was largely constructed in early concrete; as was the dome of the Pantheon. During the so called “dark ages” that followed the demise of the Roman Empire; concrete virtually ceased to be used until it was “re-discovered” in the mid-18th century. Today, if you add up the tonnage; concrete is the world’s most widely used man-made material. We even use the word “concrete” to describe something that has a physical form and is not abstract.
