What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is the most popular structural element made from cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth horizontal concrete surface commonly used for flooring or roofing. To ensure durability and years of performance, contractors add an welded wire mesh or steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
However, it is vital that you have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. The correct thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well as the whole structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the project. For example, for residential floor construction, 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for buildings that have heavy load loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. For many years, contractors have employed it to build a variety of building structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other construction projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has so many advantages. Its benefits include:
Durability and longevity
There is no more durable construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't any voids or areas of porous material in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it has the ability to maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have significant thermal mass are ideal in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, such as its resistance to different elements. Among them is its lack of organic material. Therefore, it is unable to change its shape due to rotting and the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has a high compressive strength that means it will not break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another aspect that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and it is possible to do a lot of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques it is possible to create a concrete slab with the color, texture and design that you prefer. You can even have experts create it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is simple to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs created by pouring concrete on site. We follow a set of steps for pouring concrete onto the surface to ensure we get significant results. Pouring concrete provides us with the flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments to the layout of the surface. It also lets us adjust the size of the project onsite if required. Thanks to its attributes, it's a fantastic choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on site the site, we require more devices and tools, including mixing concrete and a bull float. Also, we will require many more workers to perform the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is higher. Concrete slabs with poured concrete are long-lasting. Curing concrete slabs by itself lasts up to 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs ' curing time so we can conduct an inspection of the quality before handing over the work. Unless you are willing to be patient, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that the slabs are precast. The slabs are created in a factory before being delivered straight over to the job site. While you are able to customize the size that the slab is made, making modifications and final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured they are less costly and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are built with the color pattern, or the texture you prefer. You can also design a pattern for your slabs according to the design you like. This option is only available when you select our concrete slab service. In the absence of this, it can be very difficult to design or style you desire.
