CONCRETE BALUSTER INFORMATION

Concrete is a construction material that consists, in its most common form, of Portland cement, construction aggregate (generally gravel and sand) and water.

Concrete does not solidify from drying after mixing and placement; the water reacts with the cement in a chemical process known as hydration. This water is absorbed by the cement, which hardens, bonding the other components together and eventually creating a stone-like material.

     PORTLAND CEMENT   What Is

 

HOW TO MAKE A CONCRETE BALUSTER

I finger tighten everything, I do not use hand tools in this process. To release the molds there is no prying. The top part of the mold is released when the bolt are unscrewed and the bottom is released by the rebar. All work is done with care. They are my babies. I work with one mold at a time. First I wipe the outside ( This keeps it clean and is an inspection process ). Next I remove the bolts, they are placed in a container and spraid with WD 40. I release the mold and wipe it clean. After it is wiped clean I oil the inside including the inner lip with vegetable oil. This is done with a dish spong. I then place the two halves together. I place the bolts back into the molds. These are finger tighten, then I go around again. This completes the process. I go to the next mold. ( This way both halves of the molds stay together ).  After the set (4 molds) is prepared, I'm ready for the concrete.

 
I wet the inside of the mixer and place a 60 pound bag of ready mix cement (sand/Cement). I turn on the machine and monitor the mixing process. I add water by spray as needed. This gives a consistent slurry. 
 
The next step is to place a 3/8 rebar in to the mold and fill the  mold with concrete. I place the mold on a cement block next to the mixer. I insert the rebar, the rebar is precut and extends past the mold on both ends. Concrete is placed into the mold. This prosess is done by hand with the use of rubber gloves. I use the cement and shake method as followed in the manufactures handout. When conpleted, the mold is taken to the side to cure and an empty mold takes it's place. This process is repeated   (3 - 60 Lbs. = 4 molds). It take about 2 hours to complete a set. This includes clean up and prep work for the rebar. 
 
The next morning the process starts again. It's all just another brick in the wall.

DO-IT YOURSELF 

These molds are a real money saver creating an unique Mediterranean castle feeling. You can use them to create many Balusters. The molds come with easy to follow instructions on how to do it. Just let your imagination run. See the examples of how these molds were used. Remember you can make any color you wish by adding any powder cement pigment.

Click for Key Largo, Florida Forecast

A hurricane is a tropical system with maximum sustained winds of at least 74 mph. At the center of the hurricane is an "eye" that varies in size but is commonly 20 to 30 miles wide. While the storm itself may extend out from the eye several hundred miles, hurricane force winds (74 mph) routinely extend 50 to 100 miles out of the eye. Atlantic hurricanes "spin" in a counter clockwise rotation that is started by the rotation of the earth.
