Chances are if you’re on our website considering concrete chipping services, you already know the difference between cement and concrete. Still, at General Chipping we are firm believers in educating those individuals that we — and our customers — serve. A little knowledge can go a long way in producing long-standing relationships and a client base that better understands what it is we in the concrete world do. Here is a brief write-up that might help in explaining the difference to your clients.
Cement is actually a component of concrete — like an ingredient in a recipe. In general, concrete is made of aggregates (fine material like sand or crushed rock), cement and water. When the water and cement combine, they form a sort of glue. Mix that with the aggregate, give it some time to dry and, eventually, you have a solid material ideal for roadways, masonry, architectural detail and so much more.
Of course, the process isn’t quite that simple. There’s plenty of planning and engineering that goes into a successful concrete project. That’s why it always pays to work with a licensed professional that guarantees their work and fully understands the task at hand.
