What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to an essential structural element composed from cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth horizontal concrete surface which is typically used as a floor or a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of use, contractors may add an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Additionally, it is important to have an expert calculate and give accurate measurements. Having the right thickness will alter the strength of slab as well as the overall structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the project. For instance, in the case of residential flooring, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for construction with heavy loads frequently.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a popular construction material. For a long time, contractors have employed it to build a variety of construction structures. It is a common choice for foundations and other construction projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Its advantages are:
Longevity and durability
There is no more robust construction material than concrete. Proper care and upkeep will ensure that concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have the appearance of voids or porous regions in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, it's capable of helping improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or raise indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, like its resistance different elements. This includes its absence of organic material. Thus, it will not become degraded due to rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. Additionally, it has a relatively high compressive strength that means that it won't break when squeezed. You can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is extremely flexible, you can make a lot of it. Making use of different techniques and methods for creating an attractive concrete slab using the color, texture, as well as the pattern you prefer. Experts can design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is very simple to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can effortlessly get rid of dirt, stains as well as dust, using standard cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are that are made by pouring concrete directly on site. We follow a process for installing concrete on site in order to deliver impressive outcomes. Concrete installation gives us liberty to make last minute changes in the design of our surface. It also lets us adjust the size of the project at the site, if necessary. Because of its capabilities, it's a good choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a downside to this, it would be time and cost. As we pour a concrete slab on the spot it is necessary to have more machinery and tools like cement mixers and a bull float. Additionally, we'll need extra workers to complete the work. The installation cost is higher. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are difficult to work with. To cure concrete slabs alone takes about 21 days. We don't leave you with wet concrete. We allow concrete slabs to cure so we can do an inspection before turning over the project. If you're not prepared to wait that long, this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this type of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed in a factory before being delivered straight to the construction site. Although you can customize the dimensions to the slab, making adjustments and quick changes on-site is impossible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured as precasts, precast costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs constructed with the color, design or design you like. We also can customize a design for your slabs, at the discretion of your taste. This service is only available on the basis of our concrete slabs poured service. Otherwise, it's impossible to achieve the look or style you want.
