What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an essential structural element composed from cast concrete. It's an even, horizontal concrete slab, commonly used for flooring or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable of use, contractors may add an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
It is also essential to employ an expert calculator and give accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will influence the structural integrity of the slab and the whole structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based on the particular project. For example, for residential flooring 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for construction with heavy loads frequently.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely sought-after construction material. For a long time, contractors have employed it to construct a variety of building structures. Concrete is a well-known choice for foundations and other development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Its benefits include:
Longevity, Durability, and Durability
There is no more durable construction material that concrete. Maintenance and proper care can allow concrete structures to last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that there aren't any gaps or porous areas within the slab of concrete. So, reducing the likelihood of cracks and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it's capable of helping control indoor comfort and decrease or increase indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with large thermal mass can be beneficial in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, such as its resistance to different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. Thus, it will not change its shape due to rotting and corrosion due to heat. Furthermore, it is a relatively high compressive strength, which means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another thing that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. The material is so flexible it is possible to do a lot of it. With a variety of techniques and applications, you can create an concrete slab that has the texture, color, and pattern that you want. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance services by a professional. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust using a few basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured created by pouring concrete over site. We follow a procedure for pouring concrete onto the surface which guarantees us to provide significant results. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make changes in the design of our surface. Also, it allows us to modify the size of the project on site if required. With its features, it is a great choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's one downside to this, it's the time and expense. Because we will pour a concrete slab on site and require additional tools and equipment, like the concrete mixer and bull floating. We'll also need many more workers to perform the job. Therefore, the cost of installation is more expensive. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are costly to install. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it takes about 21 days. We do not leave you with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs to dry so that we can do an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you're not ready to put off waiting that long, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that the slabs are precast. They are manufactured at a factory, and then shipped straight on to construction sites. You can however customize the dimensions that the slab is made, making modifications or necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. Unlike the ones poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs built with the color design or style you would like. They can also be customized with a design for your slabs, according to your personal preferences. This service is only available on the basis of the concrete slab services we offer. If not, it's hard to achieve the look or style you'd like.
