What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component made of cast concrete. It is a flat, horizontal concrete slab, commonly utilized as a floor or roofing. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors add steel mesh wire or steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
While it's also important to hire an expert calculation and take the proper measurements. A proper thickness will impact the integrity of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the construction. For instance, in residential flooring 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build carrying heavy loads often.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is an extremely popular construction material. For many years, contractors have employed it to build a variety of construction structures. It's a standard choice for foundations as well as other development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete has many advantages. The advantages of concrete include:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably no more robust construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that there aren't any gaps or porous areas within the slab of concrete. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it's capable of helping maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, like its resistance various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. Therefore, it does not suffer from rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. In addition, it has a relatively high compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another quality that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. The material is so flexible you can create a variety of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques that allow you to make a concrete slab in the color, texture, and design of your choice. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance services by a professional. You can easily rid yourself of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are slabs formed by pouring cement on the ground. The process we follow is placing concrete on the ground which guarantees us to provide significant results. When we pour concrete, we have the freedom to make last-minute changes to the look of the surface. It also lets us adjust the size of the job on site if required. Because of its capabilities, it's an excellent choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's an issue to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab to the location there is a need for more equipment and tools, for example, cement mixers and a bull float. We will also need additional workers to finish the job. Also, the installation price is much more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also very time-consuming. A concrete slab that is cured on its own can take up to 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs to dry so that we can do an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the project. If you're unwilling the time to wait, then this is the one for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are made at a factory, and then shipped directly over to the job site. However, you can tailor the size for the slab, making any adjustments or quick changes on-site is impossible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly, precast costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are designed with the color pattern or texture you want. We can also customize a pattern to your slabs depending on your preference. This feature is only accessible when you select our concrete slab services. Otherwise, it's impossible to achieve the look or look you're after.
