Using Flexiform plastic concrete forms is a total game changer when laying concrete. They are flexible, to suit a variety of needs, and reusable, which is not only great for your wallet, but also for the environment. Although most of our customers use them for building pools, they can be used for any concrete laying application you can imagine. Here are four of the most popular reasons to use plastic concrete forms.
Sidewalks come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why Flexiform is the ideal choice! Sometimes all you need is just a straight sidewalk, like in front of the house by the road. Most people will use wood forms for this and that works just fine. But when you’re building a sidewalk from the front door to the driveway, or from the back door to the pool, you might be working with a slant or curve for some visual appeal. Plastic concrete forms makes this super easy to do.
Driveways tend to be pretty standard and have straight edges, so most people will use wood concrete forms since they are highly durable. Even when working with straight lines, though, plastic concrete forms can be a great addition to your concrete-laying arsenal. They allow you to create slants or curves, if necessary, and can work around other landscaping obstructions that wood forms just can’t handle.
Swimming pools are the obvious choice for plastic concrete forms because they are so flexible. They can allow you to create any shape or curve you desire. With a super-tight radius, you can create a small pool or pond in the backyard. Your pool doesn’t have to be a perfect square or rectangle. You can choose all kinds of shapes like kidney or infinity or even create your own custom shape. Plus, you can reuse them for the next job, even if it’s an entirely different shape!
Building a backyard patio is a fun addition to a home. It allows for greater use of the space which really adds to the overall home value. Sometimes a patio is just a large concrete slab in a square or rectangle shape. This is pretty easy to accomplish. But sometimes a homeowner wants a unique shape or has some landscaping they want to work around that doesn’t involve a straight line. With flexible plastic concrete forms, you can work with any existing landscaping and design the patio to the homeowner’s exact specifications.
