What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a popular structural element made from cast concrete. It's flat horizontal concrete slab that is used as a floor or for a roof. To ensure the durability and longevity of performance, contractors add steel mesh wire or steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
In addition, it is crucial for an expert to calculate and present accurate measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will impact the integrity of the slab as well as the overall structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the design. For example, in residential floor construction 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for structures with heavy loads frequently.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is a well-known construction material. Over the years, builders have utilized it to construct various construction structures. It is a preferred choice for foundations and other development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete is so advantageous. Its advantages are:
Longevity and Durability
There may not be a more durable construction material than concrete. Proper care and upkeep can ensure that concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material within the concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracking and other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it can improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass work in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to decline due to rotting, or burning caused by extreme heat. In addition, it has a relatively high compressive strength that means it will not break when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another thing that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. It is so adaptable that it's possible to make a lot of it. Using different methods and applications, you can create concrete slabs with the texture, color and design of your choice. Experts can design it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It doesn't require regular upkeep by a professional. You can quickly get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is slabs formed by pouring cement on the spot. There is a method we use for placing concrete on the ground so that we can guarantee substantial outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us ability to make last-minute changes in the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to modify the size that the project is required. Based on its strengths, it's a fantastic choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's an issue to this, it would be time and cost. Since we pour a concrete slab on site the site, we require more equipment and tools, for example, the concrete mixer and bull float. We'll also need more people to perform the job. This means that the installation cost is higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are very time-consuming. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it could take up to 21 calendar days. It is not our intention to leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow concrete slabs to cure so we can perform a quality check before turning over the work. If you're willing to sit for that long then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs can be made at a factory and are then shipped directly into the building site. While you are able to customize the dimensions of the slabbut making adjustments and quick changes on-site is impossible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured that are precast, it costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs that are made using the color, pattern, or texture of your preference. We can also create a design for your slabs, according to your preferences. This service is only available If you opt for our poured concrete slab services. Otherwise, it will be difficult to get the design or style you want.
