The process of building a home typically includes many stages and in most of these stages, your choice of cement will play a crucial role.
There are three main types of cement for constructing a home - OPC, PPC and PSC. Among the three, you will find OPC is available almost everywhere, but PPC and PSC will give better strength and excellent durability.
Before purchasing the cement, make sure to check the manufacturing date. If the cement bag is older than 90 days, you should consult your engineer. You will find the manufacturing date, along with other important details like the MRP and the ISI stamp, printed on the side of the bag. Make sure to inspect the cement bag for lumps as this makes the cement unsuitable for construction.
In trying to pick the right cement, don’t be influenced by price alone. In an attempt to bargain and save money in the short-run, you risk paying a big price in the long-run. When you are making the purchase, you should choose reputed companies. A strong home is one that lasts and choosing the right cement can have a lasting impact.
