Cement is one of the most important building materials. It must be carefully stored in a dry place, since it can get spoiled by exposure to moisture. Here is what you need to know for proper cement storage.
Cement bags should be kept on a raised platform, in a storeroom without windows
Keep the stack of cement bags at a two metre distance from both the wall and ceiling
Make sure that there are not more than 14 bags stacked up at once, as this can cause cement balls to form
During the rains, cover the site with a tarpaulin
Remember that cement is strongest when it is fresh - so buy cement only as per your needs and avoid purchasing newer bags before finishing the existing stock
Follow these foolproof steps to store cement and build your perfect home.
