What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an important structural element that is made out of cast concrete. It's flat vertical concrete surface typically used for floors or roofing. In order to guarantee durability and years of performance, contractors use reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary for an expert to calculate and make the correct measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will affect the quality of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness in buildings that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is an extremely popular construction material. For many years, contractors have employed it for the construction of various building structures. It's a typical choice for foundations , as well as other development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity, Durability, and Durability
There is no more durable construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care makes concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that we do not have many voids, or porous spaces in the concrete slab. This reduces the risk of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it is able to improve indoor comfort, and also reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with significant thermal mass are ideal in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, such as its resistance to different elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to change its shape due to rotting and corrosion due to heat. Additionally, it has very high compressive strengths that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical spills and stains.
Another characteristic that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile you can create a variety of it. Employing various methods and applications that allow you to make a concrete slab that is the texture, color, and pattern that you want. The experts can custom design it, too.
Contrary to other building materials, concrete is simple to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance by a professional. It is easy to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
These are created by pouring concrete on the spot. The process we follow is making concrete at the site and ensuring that we achieve significant outcomes. Concrete is poured gives us the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the appearance of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the project in the field if needed. Thanks to its attributes, it's the ideal option for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's a negative to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab to the location the site, we require more tools and equipment, such as a concrete mixer and bull float. There will also be a need for an additional workforce to do the job. This means that the installation cost is more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are difficult to work with. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it lasts up to 21 days. We don't leave with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs ' to cure, so we can perform a quality check before turning over the project. If you don't want to wait for that long then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs are made at a factory, and then shipped straight at the place of work. Although you can customize the dimensions of the slabbut making adjustments and late-night changes on site isn't feasible. Like the slabs you pour directly that are precast, it costs less and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are constructed with the color, design or pattern of your choice. We are also able to customize a style for your slabs according to your personal preferences. This feature is only accessible when you select our poured concrete slab services. In the absence of this, it can be hard to achieve the look or style you'd like to achieve.
