Concrete is the most prevalent building material in North America, and it is used on more construction sites, and in more home renovations than anyone could ever count. It is used to build homes, pavements, runways, schools, hospitals and countless other properties and projects. Concrete is more durable than the alternatives, and due to advances in concrete mixing technologies, it is now stronger than ever, with excellent strength, stability, and durability over time. There are other building materials like natural stone, wood and plastic gaining popularity in the modern construction industry. None of them can meet the price and effectiveness of concrete. Concrete requires little maintenance and is very easy to locally produce. Also, concrete is easy to modify to achieve the look of other, more expensive building materials. Decorative concrete use is fast gaining popularity in constructing durable and aesthetic pavements and driveways in many homes. Concrete can be modified with a specialized texture to assume the look of expensive building materials like limestone and flagstone while promising three to four times the durability.
