While early forms of concrete have been used on the Egyptian Pyramids and Roman architecture as early as 3000 BC, concrete work as we know it came along in 1824, with newer design options like colored concrete, and decorative concrete coming along in the early 1900s and countertops only starting to be built in the 1980s!
Concrete has a lot of history and has evolved greatly over the years. At AL Construction we pride ourselves in being able to both respect the history, and continue to learn all the latest techniques to work with this versatile and durable material.
