Are YOU Ready to Make the Transition? Aluminum vs. Wood Forms:
Wondering how aluminum forms hold up against wood forms for concrete walls? Take them head-to-head and find out:
*Aluminum forms set faster than wood forms, using 33% less hardware and ties. And, when making a switch to the superior system, there’s minimal retraining because it keeps the same basic layout principles. From setting 3 feet at a time instead of 2, breaking ties once instead of twice, to not needing to set & strip grade nails, these are some small things that translate to a few man hours per job in labor savings.
*Aluminum concrete forms last longer than wood forms . They are hard at work on your projects for years, not just months, allowing you to realize greater cost savings with fewer purchases.
*Aluminum concrete forms allow a choice in hardware systems, including affordable attached hardware options. Wood forms don’t provide the chance to compare or change.
*Aluminum concrete forms do not require nails, reducing both your hardware expense and your risk of nail-related accidents.
*Aluminum forms pour better-looking walls, increasing your opportunities for new & repeat business.
