There may be other reasons for concrete foundations to crumble. Soil may lose its moisture content in summer. There may be underground roots which may wither and die. Such natural causes make the soil shrink and hence the foundation may move. Though this movement is gradual, overtime it will cause cracks to occur. These cracks will be large gaping ones, running across the entire length of the foundation. They may even be in the form of tiny holes in certain places.
If you are planning on doing any entertaining during the upcoming summer months, it makes sense to plan and then install your outdoor living areas so that they will be ready to go when your guests arrive. In a garden setting, the walks, patios, seating areas and retaining walls are known as hardscape, which will ideally complement and contrast your lovely landscape. This is a spot where decorative concrete designs can liven up the outdoor areas so that they become living areas and are seen as an extension of your home.
How much might all this cost? Well it neednt cost you the earth. Concrete fence posts are very cost effective when set against the timber fence post equivalents, particularly when you take into account all the aforementioned advantages that concrete fence posts offer you, I would say they are a gem of a buy when considering new fencing and they will produce a garden fencing to be proud of. If you want any further information visit a local stockist or take one last tip from me. I am aware that AVS Fencing Supplies currently have a special spring 2009 on line promotion on all the fencing materials mentioned in this article.
Concrete gravel boards - If you choose to add this option, these sit beneath the fence panels and keep the garden fence panels from touching the ground and thus give the fence panel a longer life expectancy. The concrete gravel board is also useful if there is a change of ground level and if soil retention is required. These boards come in 2 sizes, 150mm and 300mm deep.
You can mix a batch of Cerlon at a time then trowel it because Cerlon will adhere to itself even if it is set without causing a cold joint. Cerlon sets in 10 minutes. Cerlon when setting the temperature reaches in excess of 140 degrees. In my opinion Cerlon to patch concrete is best product to use to eliminate salt from damaging the Concrete. Cerlon also sets fast so there is little or no down time on the area to be repaired. The only down side to Cerlon is the need for training so that Cerlon does not harden before you can finish it.
