Useful Fact 10 of 101 Reasons to Use Concrete

Thomas Edison – widely considered to be the most important and prolific inventor in modern times – was a major proponent of the properties of concrete.

Unfortunately, this was one invention that didn’t work out for the famous inventor.

While his concrete house idea never took off, his claims about the great characteristics of concrete were valid and helped increase the popularity of the versatile material.
