Reason to Use Precast Concrete for Modular Homes

Description of Precast Concrete
Precast concrete is a construction product that is produced by casting concrete in a reusable mould. It is cured in a controlled environment, transported to site and lifted into place. It is a highly versatile product available in vast range of different sizes, functions and finishes.
Precast concrete provides an efficient delivery model for your project; allowing building construction to proceed while the design is developed.
An inherent characteristic of precast concrete is its natural resistance to mold, greatly reducing health concerns from VOCs and off gassing. With these environmentally friendly advantages, it satisfies a growing demand for sustainable design and construction.
The thermal mass inherent to precast concrete lends itself to energy efficiency and reduces the heating and cooling peaks and loads; often necessitating less costly mechanical systems.
The exterior of a precast concrete structure can be left unpainted without damage from the elements. If painting is desired, repainting is needed only every five to ten years. It’s interiors are less subject to damage, and easier to wash.
