What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an important structural element that is made from cast concrete. It's an even, horizontal concrete surface commonly used as a floor and as a roof. To ensure long-lasting durability and years of operation, contractors install welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Additionally, it is important to have an expert calculate and make the correct measurements. A proper thickness will affect the integrity of the slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness is dependent upon the specific project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for construction that have heavy load loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is a popular construction material. For years, contractors have employed it to build a variety of building structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has so many advantages. Its advantages include:
Durability and Longevity
There's not a more durable construction material that concrete. The proper care and maintenance can allow concrete structures to last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that we do not have many voids, or porous spaces in the slab of concrete. So, reducing the likelihood for cracks as well as other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass, which relates to its ability to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its high thermal mass, concrete can maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase indoor temperatures through absorbing natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, in particular its resistance to various elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic material. So, it doesn't decay due to rotting or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. Furthermore, it has very high compressive strengths that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another feature that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. It is so adaptable that you can do a lot of it. Employing various methods and applications it is possible to create concrete slabs in the texture, color, and pattern that you want. Experts can help you design it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is extremely simple to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance maintenance from a professional. It is easy to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust using a few basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs formed by pouring cement on site. There is a method we use for setting up concrete on site, ensuring we deliver significant results. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make changes regarding the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the work on the spot if needed. Its advantages mean that it makes a perfect choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's an issue to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab over the site, we need more instruments and equipment, for instance, a concrete mixer and bull floating. We'll also need additional workers to finish the work. Also, the installation price is higher. Poured concrete slabs are also time-consuming. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it takes about 21 days. We do not leave with concrete that is still wet. We wait for the slabs to cure so we can conduct checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the project. Unless you are willing to wait that long, this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that the slabs are precast. The slabs will be manufactured in a facility before being shipped straight towards the location of the project. Although you can personalize the dimensions and shape of your slabs, making changes or necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. Unlike the ones poured directly Precast is cheaper and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are made with the color, design, or design you like. We are also able to create a custom design for your slabs based on your preference. This option is only available with our concrete slab service. In the absence of this, it can be difficult to create the style or style you want.
