Poured concrete walls provide a rock-solid foundation for residential homes and can even be used outside the home for retaining wall structures. Whether used for foundations, landscape retention, or design aesthetic, poured concrete walls are a very durable material that will add value to any Atlanta home.

Benefits of Poured Concrete Walls

There are many advantages in choosing poured concrete to construct your wall over other materials. Here are just some of the many benefits of poured concrete walls:

  • High durability – poured concrete walls are one of the most durable material options for wall compositions. Concrete walls are significantly stronger than concrete block and other materials, making them extremely safe and weather-resistant. Additionally, unlike other materials, concrete obviously does not rot, mold, or become damaged by insects.
  • Low maintenance – due to the impressive strength and durability of poured concrete walls, they require virtually no maintenance over time making them a great long-term investment for homeowners.
  • Water & Fire Resistant – another benefit to poured concrete walls is that they are water resistant and fire resistant. The joint-free construction of poured concrete walls eliminates fire hazards as well as corrosion from water damage.
  • Affordability – poured concrete walls remain an extremely affordable option for its durability compared to other building materials
  • Versatility – concrete is actually a very versatile material, enabling it to meet several different structural and design needs of homeowners

Poured Concrete Retaining Walls

The purpose of retaining walls is to provide stabilization and structure to a sloping landscape. In addition to its functional purpose, retaining walls serve as a decorative feature as well. Of the different materials to choose from when constructing a retaining wall, a great option is poured concrete.

  

Poured concrete is an excellent choice for retaining wall material due to its strength and durability. Concrete naturally is water-resistant and does not corrode from weather, meaning it will require very little maintenance over time. Additionally, concrete is environmentally friendly and is made from natural, recycled materials. Concrete is considered green construction, because is conserves other alternative building resources such as lumber.

Poured Concrete Wall Process

When pouring the concrete, our ready-mix concrete trucks will deploy the concrete directly into the foundations forms, reinforced by steel. It’s critical to use steel forms to reinforce the concrete walls, due to the material’s tensile strength. Although concrete has very strong compressive strength, it lacks tensile strength. What this means is that concrete can withstand pressure trying to reduce its size (compress it), but does not withstand pressure tending to elongate or bend it. For comparison, concrete has a tensile strength of 4,000 psi, whereas steel has a tensile strength of 36,000 psi. Together, concrete and steel are extremely complementary materials for the strong structures.

   

When pouring concrete into the steel forms, it’s important to eliminate any and all hollow spots caused by air pockets. Our experienced team has expert workmanship when it comes to pouring concrete. To prevent hollow areas, we use vibrating tools to ensure that the concrete settles in place and is fully solid.

Poured Concrete Walls vs. Concrete Blocks

When deciding whether to use poured concrete walls or walls made from concrete blocks, there are a few high-level differences to consider. Poured concrete walls are stronger than cinder blocks, because poured walls have more lateral strength. This lateral strength is beneficial to resist pressure from soil and water in retention walls.

Another reason why poured concrete walls are stronger is because they don’t have joints like cinderblocks do. Concrete blocks are hollow and connected with joints making them more susceptible to tension than poured concrete.

  • Communication is a key!

    Sudlow Concrete repaired a large sink hole in my driveway and another small area of the driveway that had cracked and was becoming an issue as well. The project took two days. The owner, Bill Sudlow, communicated with me through the entire process which was nice. I’ve been dealing with several contractors this month and not everyone understands that communication is a key factor to the home owner. The end results – – it looks great. Very pleased.

  • Quality of work was top notch!

    Bill Sudlow was such a pleasure to work with. He gave us an honest quote and the quality of work was top notch!! His crew was very friendly, hardworking and most importantly they cleaned up after themselves as if they were never there, except the gorgeous new driveway, with the lovely brick inlay they matched to the color of the house very well! Would recommend them to everyone!! Thanks Bill!

  • Bill and his crew were exceptional.

    Timely, professional and pricing was on point. I have worked with many contractors and Sudlow has moved to the top of my list. He will be getting a lot of business from the neighbors

  • The crew arrived on time

    Sudlow Concrete replaced parts of my concrete driveway and patio that were cracked and sinking. The crew arrived on time, worked in a very efficient manner, and did an excellent job. They also did an excellent job in making sure the job site was clean before leaving. I would use them again for any fututre concrete work.

    Bill and his team do good work. I had them out a few days ago 7/2. The concrete is still curing but so far it looks great! Pricing was fair. He and his team were out ON TIME. The were professional and friendly. I will use them again in the future!

  • Highly Recommended

    We hired Bill and his crew at Sudlow Concrete for a fairly extensive driveway replacement/expansion job. The whole team was a pleasure to work with. There were several complexities to the job that other companies didn’t want to handle. Sudlow did it all and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend them.

  • Couldn't be happier

    Bill Sudlow and his crew just finished our driveway today, and we couldn’t be happier. We received four quotes and ultimately went with Sudlow Concrete based on all the great reviews and his very competitive price. He takes great care of his crew, and they have worked with him for a long time. I was very impressed with how hard these guys worked and how meticulous they were with smoothing out the concrete and adding vertical and horizontal joints. Bill also helped us with filling in a sinkhole in our backyard. I would highly recommend Bill and his team for any concrete job.

  • Job Well Done!

    Sudlow Concrete is one of the very best companies, bar-none!!……..arrived on time!…very professional!….kept his word on the price for the large parking pad with a ramp. Extremely conscious of the work that is being performed by his crew!……and the customer’s expectations….gave expert advice for working in a close confinement area while avoiding damaging the sprinkle system and heads/pipes all over the backyard. Moreover, Bill wanted to know before he left if we were completely satisfied with the results; the answer from me and my wife was a resounding YES!!……also, the job is not finished, if the clean-up is lacking…..JOB WELL DONE; Sudlow Concrete.
