    It is obvious that the benefits of using concrete clearly outweigh the few adverse effects which are commonly due to poor workmanship and contractor experience

LETS LOOK AT HOW WE TRY TO REDUCE/RESOLVE THESE ADVERSE EFFECTS

Concrete must be cut to control unnecessary cracking

  • As concrete dries moisture is released causing the molecular structure of the concrete to shrink.

  • The saw-cut creates a weakness point which relieves the stresses built up due to shrinkage.

  • 10 mm Rebar will allow very little movement as the concrete cures and settles, it also contributes to future strength and stability.

​Evaporation occurs as concrete hardens therefore creating shrinkage

SHRINKAGE

  • Saw-cuts allow for movement that may occur beneath the concrete due to temperature changes and climate conditions

Benefits of Cutting Concrete

  • Allows concrete to expand and contract due to temperature change.

  • Allows concrete to move up and down due to frost action.

  • Allows concrete to be poured in large panels thus eliminating point load settlement and allows surface run off.

Example: Below you will see a comparison between concrete and pavers/interlocking brick.

UNIT PAVERS

  • Sub-grade becomes saturated and soft as water permeates through unit pavers.

  • During winter, moist ground freezes and creates heaving.

  • Gaps between bricks tend to get larger in turn allowing more water into sub-grade and this restarts the cycle.
