Builder's Concrete East Explains 3 Hidden Environmental Benefits of Concrete, Windham, Connecticut

Concrete has become one of the most important building blocks of the modern landscape; it's a material we count on to provide shelter, to provide a safe surface to drive on, and to shape our world. Builder’s Concrete East of North Windham, CT, has a reputation as the top concrete supplier in the area. Contrary to what you may think, concrete actually has some green environmental properties that complement the natural surroundings of a structure and are sustainable:

  • Sourcing: The material basis of concrete is a mixture of stone and sand mixed with water and cement. All of these materials are readily available independent of location. That geographical convenience allows for a diminished carbon footprint since the energy costs of shipping will be drastically lower. 
  • Energy: The color of concrete ensures that more light reflects off its surface, which has the effect of cooling the surrounding environment. Since residential areas tend to be hotter, that natural cooling reduces the local effects of global warming to a minor extent.
  • Duration: Concrete’s strength enables it to outlast most other materials. A long lifetime creates large savings by eliminating the need to knock down a crumbling building to construct another. As testified by many ancient structures that still stand today, concrete is incredibly resilient.

Whether your project is large or small, Builder’s Concrete East has the concrete mixes to get the job done. Rest assured that investing in a project involving concrete is an investment in a healthy environment. If you’re in the North Windham area, you can reach the company at (860) 456-4111.
