Precast Concrete Forming Equipment vs RentalsWritten by GJ Stott
Concrete forms include any type of mold that uses precast concrete to create a desired product. Such molds come in plastic, metal, paper and rubber options that are designed to meet nearly every need imaginable. This article will discuss the need for(or lack thereof) concrete form rental when creating a solid wall.
To ensure you have a solid, long-lasting, high quality, low cost wall, you have determined to use precast concrete. You know it provides longevity as well as natural looks cast into the finalized product. Now you have determined that you are ready to have a wall made and installed.
You have two options: do it yourself or have someone do it for you. If you decide to do it yourself, you will need to learn about concrete and its admixtures, rent a concrete form, transport the concrete form, rent or buy hoisting and lifting equipment, contract with local engineers to ensure your wall is installed correctly and come up with the time and money to complete all of these steps.
By using AFTEC’s Precast Concrete Forming Equipment, a professional licensee will take care of all of these steps for you.
