What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an extremely popular structural component made of cast concrete. The slab is flat vertical concrete surface typically used as a floor and for a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of performance, contractors can add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
It is also essential to employ an expert calculator and give accurate measurements. Having the right thickness will alter the strength of slab as well as the overall structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the particular project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for structures with heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. For years, contractors employed it for the construction of various construction structures. It is an extremely popular option to construct foundations and various development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete is an excellent choice. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and longevity
There may not be a more sturdy construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care will ensure that concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material in the slab of concrete. So, reducing the likelihood of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow of energy. Due to its thermal mass, it's capable of helping regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or raise indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass work in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, like its resistance different elements. Among them is its lack of organic matter. This means it won't suffer from rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. Additionally, it has an impressive compressive strength that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another quality that makes concrete popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile it's possible to make a lot of it. By employing different methods and application it is possible to create concrete slabs that have the color, texture and pattern you like. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is very simple to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance care by a pro. You can get rid of stains, dirt, as well as dust, using standard cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured slabs created by pouring a concrete slab on the site. We follow a set of steps for setting up concrete on site and ensuring that we achieve significant results. Pouring concrete gives us opportunity to make last-minute adjustments to the design of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the project in the field if it is required. Its advantages mean that it is a great choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's a downside to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll pour a concrete slab on the site there is a need for more devices and tools, including a concrete mixer and bull float. Additionally, we'll need more workers for the job. This means that the installation cost is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are time-consuming. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own lasts up to 21 days. We don't leave with wet concrete. We allow the slabs to dry so that we can do some quality checks before turning over the project. Unless you are willing to wait that long, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this type of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed by a manufacturer and then transported straight into the building site. However, you can tailor the dimensions to the slab, making adjustments and last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly they are less costly and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are which are crafted with the color pattern or texture of your choice. We can also create a pattern for your slabs based on your preference. This service is only available If you opt for our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it will be difficult to attain the design or look you're after.
