Structural Concrete + Steps Services at Priority Construction

Structural concrete is a special type of concrete that that is capable of carrying a structural load or forming an integral part of a structure.

Reinforced concrete (RC) is a composite material in which concrete's strength and ductility are counteracted by the inclusion of reinforcement having higher tensile strength and/or ductility.

Reinforced Concrete, concrete in which steel is embedded in such a manner that materials act together in resisting forces. The reinforcing steel—rods, bars, or mesh—absorbs the tensile, shear, and sometimes the compressive stresses in a concrete structure. Plain concrete does not easily withstand tensile and shear stresses caused by wind, earthquakes, vibrations, and other forces and is therefore unsuitable in most structural applications. In reinforced concrete, the tensile strength of steel and the compressive strength of concrete work together to allow the member to sustain these stresses over considerable spans. The invention of reinforced concrete in the 19th century revolutionized the construction industry, and concrete became one of the world’s most common building materials.

A foundation wall provides support for the entire structure that is being built. Foundation walls should be planned and constructed carefully as they are probably the most important part of the structure. When foundation walls are not worked correctly, some cracks might appear and settling of the structure can also occur. Cracks can be because it was backfilled before the concrete achieved the required strength or just because the necessary amount of steel was not placed accordingly.
