What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is the most popular structural element made of concrete cast. The slab is flat, horizontal concrete surface which is typically utilized as a floor or for a roof. For durability and to ensure years in performance, contractors incorporate an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
In addition, it is crucial to hire an expert calculation to provide accurate measurements. The right thickness can affect the integrity of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the design. For example, in residential flooring 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness to build that carry heavy loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely sought-after construction material. For years, contractors used it to construct various building structures. It's a standard choice to construct foundations and various development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete is an excellent choice. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's not a more robust construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, 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 longevity and durability of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted in a way that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material in the concrete slab. This reduces the risk that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass, concrete can adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have great thermal mass are beneficial in locations with 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. So, it doesn't fall apart due to rotting nor rusting caused by excessive heat. It also has an impressive compressive strength, which is why it doesn't break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another feature that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile that you can make a lot of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques one can build concrete slabs with the color, texture and design you prefer. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. It does not need regular cleaning by a professional. You can easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust using a few basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are slabs made by pouring the concrete on the site. We follow a procedure for installing concrete on the site in order to deliver impressive results. Concrete installation gives us freedom to make last-minute changes in the design of our surface. It also allows us to modify the size that the project is it is required. Based on its strengths, it's a good choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's a drawback to this, it would be time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab onto the site the site, we require more devices and tools, including a concrete mixer and bull floating. Additionally, we'll need more people to perform the job. Also, the installation price is much more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be very time-consuming. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it lasts up to 21 days. We do not leave you with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs to cure so we can perform one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you're unable to put off waiting that long, this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this type of slab is precast. They are manufactured in a plant and shipped straight at the place of work. While you are able to customize the dimensions and shape of your slabs, making changes and final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly they are less costly and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are made with the color, pattern or texture of your choice. We are also able to customize a pattern for your slabs depending on your preference. This feature is only available in the event that you opt for our poured concrete slab services. Otherwise, it will be challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like.
