3 Reasons Why Concrete Is Better Than Other Building Materials, Honolulu, Hawaii

When it comes to the construction of your home, you want the best of the best in every aspect — from the foundation all the way down to the driveway. You want a house made from materials that have a long lifespan, can withstand pressure and accidents, and provide security and durability. In the case of your home’s foundation, walkway, and driveway, concrete is the superior material. The contractors at Rugged Slopes Hawaii in Honolulu will install and help build concrete walls, paths, and floors for you so you can be sure you are getting the very best of the best.

Why should you choose concrete over other materials? Here are three reasons why it’s better than the rest:

  • Environmentally Friendly: Concrete is made mostly from limestone, which is one of the most plentiful natural resources the Earth has. You can be sure you aren’t taking anything away from the ecosystem when you create something using concrete. Not to mention, once something made from concrete is not being used anymore, the concrete can be broken down and recycled into new concrete — meaning there is very little waste. Also, if you use pervious concrete for things like your driveway or walkway, it retains rainwater runoff, adding to your local water supply.
  • Long-Lasting: Concrete lasts longer than almost any other common building materials. It does not rot, rust, or burn, making it immune to the majority of accidents and natural disasters. 
  • concreteEnergy Efficient: Concrete has the ability to absorb and retain heat, so homes built with concrete walls, floors, and foundations stay warmer during the cold months, keeping you from having to turn the heat up. Concrete roofs and driveways reflect light instead of absorbing it, which in turn keeps your home cooler during the hot months. This can all help you cut a great deal of money from your energy bills.
