In today’s era, concrete is one of the basic and the most used construction material. It was discovered around 1300BC and from that time till now it has evolved majorly. We can see different types of concrete being used in different ways from foundations, column, beam, and slabs; it has now emerged as an aesthetical material that gives a rustic look with no finished coatings and is also used for minimalism kind of designs and interiors and creates more of a focal point in the house.
