What Are the Differences Between Concrete, Cement, and Mortar?

Have you ever found yourself at a home improvement store, staring confusedly at the different building mixes? If so, you would do well to learn the differences between concrete, cement, and mortar. Once you understand the differences, you can tell your San Francisco concrete contractor exactly what you want.

This video provides a quick lesson in the differences between concrete, cement, and mortar. Cement is a fine powder that hardens when you add water, and is usually added to other building mixes. Concrete is comprised of cement, sand, and course stone, and can sustain heavy loads after it dries. Finally, mortar is a soft mixture of cement, lime, and sand that is usually used to hold together brick, stone, and other building materials.
