Cost Savings

The cost of concrete shrinkage


Concrete drying and autogeneous shrinkage can be a significant expense to the construction industry.  From mitigation efforts, to repairs, to liabilities, the financial burden of shrinkage cracks extends well beyond the cost of a yard of concrete.  In addition, an owner’s perceived value of a structure is significantly decreased once cracks occur.
