We know that concrete is strong and that construction methods affect how the concrete could crack as time goes on, but how long will concrete really last? We’ll go over the data today so you can rest easy. With one of the most trusted names in Central Florida, Tolley Concrete will make sure your project is done right.
The term “durability” means something can last for a long period of time without significantly deteriorating. Concrete fits the bill. By choosing a durable material like concrete for your project, you’re saving the environment and resources by having to create and purchase materials less often. With the correct installation and maintenance, concrete can withstand weathering, chemicals, and abrasion, making it an economic choice.

Concrete can be used for the foundation of homes, patio, sidewalks and roads, porches, flooring, and much more. When building, it’s important to consider the ingredients that will be used in the concrete, the proportioning of the ingredients, and the construction and curing techniques. Don’t forget to check the weather forecast for construction and curing days, and know the environment of the project and what exactly it needs to withstand.
The concrete used in the construction of buildings and homes should last 30 to 100 years depending on the construction style and method of installation. Oftentimes even when other parts of the building are destroyed or replaced due to wear and tear, the concrete can be reused. No matter the project, if it’s done properly with the right ingredients and processes, it’s not uncommon for it to last for decades.
