Exposing Commercial and Residential Concrete Project Differences

If you’re interested in breaking into the residential or commercial industries for your concrete products, you should be aware of the pretty large differences between the industries.

Commercial concrete covers a large range of potential projects, including paving, polishing, parking lots and full-on construction. Commercial projects usually require stronger concrete mixes over residential due to the nature of commercial properties.

Concrete is useful for commercial properties because it resists stains, is easier to maintain than other materials and can help cut down on lighting costs if polished to a reflected surface.

Commercial properties can also go up faster through the use of precast concrete walls brought in from off-site. This results in less construction time which mean property intended as a warehouse or retail store can get to work.

In a previous blog, we discussed why concrete can be good for homes. Now, here’s why you should be providing the service.

Residential concrete can involve slower projects, but customers usually want to see your more creative side here, and the projects can be more personal since you’re working with someone’s individual property.

Residential is also where many contractors have fun with textures and color mixes to really develop a home. This type of work includes driveways, floors, walls, porches, pavers and concrete overlays.
