What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a common structural component made of concrete cast. They are flat, horizontal concrete slab that is used as a flooring or for a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of efficiency, contractors will add welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Also, it's important to have an expert calculate and provide the right measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will affect the quality of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the particular project. For example, for residential floor construction 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches for buildings with frequent heavy use.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is a popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have utilized it to construct various building structures. It is a popular choice for foundations and other development projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete is extremely beneficial. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and longevity
There's probably not a more durable construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can make concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that we do not have gaps or pores within this concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. It refers to its ability to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it has the ability to adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are helpful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, such as its resistance to various elements. In addition, it lacks of organic material. It is therefore unable to degrade because of rotting or corrosion caused by high temperatures. It also has a relatively high compressive strength that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. You can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement popular is its flexibility. It is so adaptable that you can do a great deal of it. Employing various methods and applications you can make an concrete slab that has the color, texture, and design of your choice. Experts can help you design it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is extremely simple to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance services by a professional. You can get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are formed by pouring cement on the site. We follow a method for pouring concrete onto the surface which guarantees us to provide significant outcomes. The process of pouring concrete allows us the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments regarding the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project in the field if required. Based on its strengths, it's a good choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's one downside to this, it's time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab on site, we need more equipment and tools, such as an concrete mixer as well as a bull floating. Additionally, we'll need more workers for the job. The installation cost is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are difficult to work with. Curing concrete slabs by itself can take as long as 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with wet concrete. We let the slabs to cure so we can do checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the project. If you don't want to be patient, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this slab type is precast. The slabs are produced in a facility before being shipped straight to the construction site. While you are able to customize the size for the slab, making any adjustments or quick changes on-site is impossible. Instead of being poured directly it is more affordable and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs created with the color pattern, or pattern of your choice. We also can customize a pattern to your slabs in accordance with your preference. This is only possible If you opt for our poured concrete slab services. Otherwise, it will be difficult to create the design or style you'd like to achieve.
