What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a popular structural element made from cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a flooring or as a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of performance, contractors can add welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Furthermore, it is necessary to have an expert calculate and take the proper measurements. A proper thickness will affect the integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the construction. For example, in residential flooring four inches is the usual thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches for buildings with frequent heavy use.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a popular construction material. For a long time, contractors have employed it to construct a variety of building structures. It's a standard choice to build foundations and other projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete has the advantage of being durable. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably no more durable construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it will ensure that concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the life and strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material in this concrete slab. This reduces the risk of cracks or other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it is able to maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase the temperature inside by taking in natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are helpful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages for example, its resistance to different elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic material. Therefore, it is unable to become degraded due to rotting or rusting caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has an impressive compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another feature that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is very flexible and you can create a variety of it. By using a variety methods and tools, you can create an concrete slab that has the texture, color and design you prefer. Experts can design it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is simple to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance or care from a professional. You can quickly get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is created by pouring concrete on site. The process we follow is installing concrete on the site in order to deliver impressive outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the layout of the surface. It also lets us adjust the size that the project is necessary. Its advantages mean that it makes a perfect choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's a negative to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab on the ground and require additional tools and equipment, such as cement mixers and a bull floating. We'll also need additional workers to finish the work. Also, the installation price is much more expensive. Concrete slabs that have been poured are laborious. A concrete slab that is cured on its own can take as long as 21 days. We do not leave with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs to dry so that we can conduct an assessment of quality prior to turning over the work. If you're unwilling the time to wait, then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, the slabs are precast. They are manufactured at a factory and are then shipped directly onto the site of construction. Although you can customize the size of the slab, making adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured that are precast, it costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are constructed with the color, pattern, or style you would like. Also, we can create a layout for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This service is available only when you select our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it's difficult to create the style or style you'd like to achieve.
