What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an essential structural element composed out of cast concrete. It's an even horizontal concrete slab, commonly used for flooring or for a roof. To ensure longevity and years of service, contractors include the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
While it's also important to have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will affect the integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the construction. For example, in residential floor construction four inches is the usual thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for construction with frequent heavy use.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. For years, contractors have used it to build various building structures. Concrete is a well-known choice to construct foundations and various development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete has so many advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and longevity
There's not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it can help concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that we do not have many voids, or porous spaces within the concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks and other injuries.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it has the ability to help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce or increase indoor temperatures through absorption of natural heat. Materials with large thermal mass can be beneficial for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, such as its resistance to different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. It is therefore unable to decay due to rotting or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. Furthermore, it has the highest compressive strength, which means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement well-known is its flexibility. Concrete is extremely flexible, it is possible to do a lot of it. Using different methods and applications, you can create an attractive concrete slab using the texture, color, and design you prefer. Experts can design it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is extremely easy to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance from a professional. You can effortlessly get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs made by pouring the concrete on the site. We follow a procedure for installing concrete on site, which allows us to guarantee significant outcomes. Concrete pouring gives us the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks on the design and layout of the surface. Additionally, we can modify the size of the work on the spot if necessary. Due to its characteristics, it makes a perfect choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's any downside to this, it's the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab over the site there is a need for more equipment and tools, for example, one concrete mixer, and a bull floating. Also, we will require an additional workforce to do the work. The installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are very time-consuming. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it can take up to 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs to set so we can do an inspection of the quality before handing over the work. If you're unable to wait that long, we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this kind of slab is precast. They are manufactured in a manufacturing facility and then delivered directly to the construction site. Although you have the option of modifying the dimensions of the slabbut making adjustments or any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured they are less costly and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are created with the color pattern, or texture you want. We also can customize a design for your slabs based on your preference. This feature is only accessible when you select our concrete slabs that are poured. In other cases, it could be challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like to achieve.
