Sonotubes and concrete forms are a necessary part of any concrete project. When you need to create the proper structure from concrete, these tools will help you form the concrete into the right shapes. With Sonotubes, you can create the perfect columns and pillars, while concrete forms will allow you to do so much more.

At 9 Brothers Building Supply, we offer a full line of concrete forms and we also have Sonotubes. You can use these with the rebar we offer to complete any concrete project you want. Stop by one of our two locations in Brentwood and Riverhead and we can help you choose the right products for your needs.

What are Sonotubes?

Sonotube is actually a trademarked name for a brand of reinforced tubes made out of cardboard for concrete. The tubes are designed to be put in a pre-dug hole and to be filled with concrete. Once the concrete has set, the tube will be cut away leaving a simple pillar or column form behind.

Due to the ability for Sonotubes to be used for many different things, they are very popular on construction sites. They can also be found in many sizes from an eight-inch diameter to a 56-inch diameter. They can even be as long as about 18 feet.

Why Use Sonotubes?

Without Sonotubes, you will have to create concrete columns in a very labor-intensive way. IT will require specialized mods, which have to be removed when the column is dry. This can slow down the construction process even more.

Sonotubes were created to solve this issue by making the process of creating a column much easier and faster. They make it possible for contractors and even DIYers to create columns without the difficult and long process.

Often, rebar is put inside the Sonotube to reinforce the concrete. This gives you a strong column for your project and it’s very easy to insert rebar into any Sonotube.

What are Concrete Forms?

Concrete forms are another tool that makes working with concrete very easy. They provide a specific size, shape, or form that you want to create with the concrete. You can create a wooden concrete form or buy a form made out of other materials. Either way, the right concrete form allows you to finish any construction project faster and easier.

Common Types of Concrete Forms

There are several types of concrete forms you can use for your project. Wood forms are one of the most common and usually are made of plywood. These basic concrete forms provide an easy choice that uses stakes to help prepare the sub-base, while the form boards are set on the proper slope or level with a leveling device.

It’s common to coat the wooden planks with low-grade oil or a form-release agent. This ensures the concrete won’t stick to the wood and cause many issues you don’t want to deal with.

Concrete wall forms are another common type of concrete form you will find. These are pre-manufactured to fit a specific size when building piers or building foundations. They are usually called wall systems and they come made out of engineered wood with a reinforced metal frame. They may also be made entirely of metal.

These systems make it easy to pour concrete into the right form for your walls. Custom sizes are often available for specific types of projects.

You might also find insulated concrete forms and decorative concrete forms. Both are a little less common but can be utilized for specific types of projects.
