Winter maintenance in Maryland can call for serious snow removal. Learn how to keep from injuring yourself during snow removal.


Last week – in light of Blizzard Jonas wreaking havoc on the nation – we talked about why you should not use de-icer on your concrete, asphalt and masonry. De-icer can be hazardous to your surfaces and surrounding vegetation. However, after a major snowfall, removing snow from these surfaces is necessary for health. So, how do you practice winter maintenance and keep your pavement and patio safe and clear of snow without hurting yourself? Let’s talk about it.

Mixing Concrete

Concrete is a mixture of cement, sand, rocks, ash and water.

Have you ever wondered about the difference between cement and concrete? People often use the terms cement and concrete interchangeably, which may have led you to believe that they were the same thing. However, they are actually different substances (though there is cement in concrete). Let’s talk about the difference between concrete and cement.



What is the Difference Between Cement and Concrete?

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Have you ever found yourself sitting and pondering the question, “What is the Difference Between Cement and Concrete?” If so, you are not alone. While many people use the two terms synonymously, they are actually two very different materials.

  1. Cement: Cement is actually an ingredient on concrete, comprising roughly 10-15% of the concrete mix. Cement is made from a mixture of limestone, calcium, silicon, aluminum, and other ingredients. This mixture is heated to roughly 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit, forming a product known as clinkers, which resembles marbles. This is then ground down into a powder. Next gypsum is added, creating cement.
  2. Concrete: Concrete is basically a mixtures of aggregates (sand and gravel or crushed stone) and paste (water and portland cement). Through a process known as hydration, the cement and water harden and bind the aggregates together, thus forming concrete. This durable material is excellent for sidewalks, curbs, dumpster pads, and similar structures because of its strength and its ability to hold up well to the elements.
