What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a common structural component made from cast concrete. The slab is flat, horizontal concrete surface commonly used as a floor or a roof. To ensure longevity and years of performance, contractors use an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary to hire an expert calculation and make the correct measurements. A proper thickness will impact the strength of the slab as well as the whole structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the construction. For instance, in the case of residential flooring, 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness when building with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is a popular construction material. For years, contractors constructed a variety of building structures. It is a preferred choice to construct foundations and various development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has so many advantages. Its advantages include:
Durability and Longevity
There may not be a more sturdy construction material than concrete. With proper care and maintenance, you could make concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't any pores or voids in the slab of concrete. This reduces the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This refers to its ability to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it's able to regulate indoor comfort and reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, in particular its resistance to different elements. In addition, it lacks of organic matter. Therefore, it does not decay due to rotting or burning caused by extreme heat. Furthermore, it is an extremely high compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another quality that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that you can do a lot of it. By employing different methods and application you can make an concrete slab that has the color, texture, and pattern you like. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust by using common cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured slabs made by pouring the concrete on the spot. We follow a set of steps for pouring concrete onto the surface which ensures that we can deliver substantial results. Concrete is poured gives us the possibility of making last-minute modifications to the design of the surface. It also lets us adjust the size of the project in the field if required. Its advantages mean that it's an ideal choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a drawback to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on the ground there is a need for more devices and tools, including an concrete mixer as well as a bull floating. We'll also need many more workers to perform the work. So, the price for installation is much more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also very time-consuming. To cure concrete slabs alone is a process that can take up to 21 working days. We don't leave you with concrete that is still wet. We wait for the slabs to dry so that we can do an assessment of quality prior to turning over the work. Unless you are willing to put off waiting that long, this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, the slabs are precast. The slabs are manufactured in a plant and shipped straight to the construction site. While you are able to customize the size to the slab, making adjustments or necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly Precast is cheaper and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are constructed with the color, design or style you would like. We are also able to create a custom pattern to your slabs in accordance with your preference. The application is only available on the basis of our poured concrete slab services. If not, it's difficult to create the style or look you're looking for.
