What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component made of concrete cast. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth, horizontal concrete surface that is commonly used as a floor or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable of performance, contractors add welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
However, it is vital to hire an expert calculation and give accurate measurements. The right thickness can impact the integrity of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the construction. For instance, in residential floor construction 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches for buildings that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is one of the most popular construction materials. For many years, contractors have used it to build various construction structures. It's a standard choice for foundations as well as other development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete is so advantageous. Its advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There may not be a more sturdy construction material than concrete. Proper care and upkeep will allow concrete structures to last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that we do not have any voids or porous areas in the slab of concrete. So, reducing the likelihood of cracks and other injuries.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass. This refers to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass, it's capable of helping improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase the temperature inside by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are helpful especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages in particular its resistance to different elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. Thus, it will not change its shape due to rotting and corrosion caused by high temperatures. In addition, it has the highest compressive strength that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement well-known is its flexibility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that you can make a lot of it. With a variety of techniques and applications and techniques, you can design concrete slabs that have the color, texture, or pattern you would like. The experts can custom design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance from a professional. You can quickly get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using common cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is made by pouring concrete on the spot. We follow a method for installing concrete on site so that we can guarantee substantial results. Pouring concrete provides us with the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to modify the size of the construction site when needed. Given its qualities, it's the ideal option to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there is a downside to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab on the ground and require additional instruments and equipment, for instance, cement mixers and a bull float. We will also need many more workers to perform the job. Thus, the expense of installing is much more expensive. Concrete slabs that have been poured are laborious. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own can take up to 21 days. We do not leave with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs ' to cure, so we can perform an inspection before turning over the project. Unless you are willing to wait that long then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this type of slab is precast. The slabs are created by a manufacturer and then transported directly towards the location of the project. While you are able to customize the size to the slab, making adjustments and necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. The slabs are not poured directly that are precast, it costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are which are crafted with the color pattern, or pattern of your choice. We also can customize a design for your slabs, according to your preferences. This service is only available in the event that you opt for our poured concrete slab services. In other cases, it could be hard to achieve the look or style you'd like to achieve.
