What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a popular structural element made of cast concrete. It is a flat vertical concrete surface typically used as a floor or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable of performance, contractors add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Furthermore, it is necessary for an expert to calculate and supply accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the particular project. For example, for residential floor construction 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness to build with heavy loads frequently.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is one of the most popular construction materials. For years, contractors have used it to build various construction structures. It is an extremely popular option when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete is so advantageous. Its advantages are:
Longevity and durability
There is no more sturdy construction material than concrete. Proper care and upkeep can allow concrete structures to last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend the life and strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within the slab of concrete. This reduces the risk that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass. This refers to its ability to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its large thermal mass, concrete can manage indoor comfort and lower or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass work to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic material. Thus, it will not fall apart due to rotting nor corrosion caused by high temperatures. In addition, it has a high compressive strength, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another thing that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. It is so adaptable that it's easy to make lots of it. Through a variety or methods it is possible to create concrete slabs with the color, texture or pattern you would like. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is extremely simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance from a professional. You can effortlessly get rid of stains, dirt, and dust using a few basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs made by pouring the concrete on site. We follow a method for placing concrete on the spot to ensure we get significant results. Concrete pouring gives us the possibility of making last-minute modifications to the appearance of the surface. It also permits us to modify the size of the job on site if needed. Based on its strengths, it's the perfect option for customized concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab onto the site it is necessary to have more tools and equipment like a concrete mixer and bull float. Also, we will require additional workers to finish the work. Also, the installation price is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are lengthy. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We wait for concrete slabs to cure so we can perform an inspection of the quality before handing over the work. If you're unwilling to be patient, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this type of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed in a plant and shipped directly towards the location of the project. While you are able to customize the dimensions in the slab, making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly that are precast, it costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are made with the color, design, or design of your choice. They can also be customized with a pattern for your slabs according to the design you like. This feature is only accessible with our concrete slab services. In other cases, it could be difficult to attain the design or look you're looking for.
