Concrete can last for hundreds of years. This is true for concrete that's used to make everything from statues and bridge abutments to basement walls, garage floors, and sidewalks.
But this basic mixture of sand, Portland cement, stone, and water can also break and crumble. It can sink and crack under its own weight, or be pushed off its foundation. The survival odds for any concrete element depend on the quality of initial construction and on the control of certain factors that can damage the material.
