What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to an important structural element that is made out of cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a floor or for a roof. To ensure the durability and longevity of performance, contractors can add steel mesh wire or steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
In addition, it is crucial to get an expert calculate and make the correct measurements. The right thickness can impact the integrity of the slab and also the overall structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the project. For example, in residential floor construction 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness on buildings which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. For years, contractors have used it to build various construction structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's not a more durable construction material that concrete. A proper maintenance and care can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within the concrete slab. It also reduces the possibility of cracking and other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. This is due to its ability to manage the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, it can manage indoor comfort and lower or raise indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are helpful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, like its resistance different elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. So, it doesn't fall apart due to rotting nor burning caused by extreme heat. Furthermore, it is very high compressive strengths, which signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical spills and stains.
Another aspect that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that it's possible to do lots of it. By employing different methods and application for creating a concrete slab with the color, texture, and design of your choice. Experts can design it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance services by a professional. It is simple to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using simple cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are constructed by pouring concrete onto site. There is a method we use for pouring concrete onto the surface which guarantees us to provide significant results. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the design of the surface. It also allows us to adjust the size of the project onsite if necessary. Because of its capabilities, it's an ideal choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's any downside to this, it's time and cost. Because we will pour a concrete slab on the spot it is necessary to have more machinery and tools like an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull float. Also, we will require more workers for the job. The installation cost is more expensive. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are difficult to work with. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own lasts up to 21 days. We do not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs to dry so that we can conduct one final quality inspection before handing over the project. Unless you are willing to put off waiting that long, then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. These slabs are constructed in a factory before being delivered directly onto the site of construction. Although you can personalize the dimensions and shape of your slabs, making changes and final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured it is more affordable and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are of concrete that have the color, pattern, or design you like. We can also customize a layout for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This feature is only available when you use our slabs made of concrete. If not, it's difficult to attain the design or design you'd like.
