This week, we heard from Jereme Montgomery with Stephens and Smith Construction about how to make the distinction between cement and concrete. Jereme says cement really an ingredient in concrete.. and concrete also contains rocks.. water.. and cement. In other words, cement is the powder.. and concrete is the final product.
Jereme also points out that concrete is truly a great building material. He says that it's versatile. Jereme says the product is produced locally, and it can be molded into any form that's needed. He says it's fire resistant and doesn't rot.. which means is can fall under the category of being "sustainable". Jereme says that concrete is used in many ways in back yard applications.. including in walkways and in patio areas.
