What is a concrete slab?
Concrete slabs are a well-known structural element constructed out of cast concrete. It's a flat, horizontal concrete surface that is commonly used as a floor and as a roof. For durability and to ensure years of service, contractors include an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Meanwhile, it is essential to have an expert calculate and supply accurate measurements. Having the right thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab, as well as the entire structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the structure. For example, for residential flooring, 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for buildings which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is one of the most popular construction materials. For a long time, contractors have utilized it to construct various building structures. It is a common choice for foundations as well as other development projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete has so many advantages. Its advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's not a more durable construction material that concrete. The proper care and maintenance can ensure that concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the chances of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. This is due to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it has the ability to maintain indoor comfort and lessen or raise indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass work in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages such as its resistance to various elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. It therefore does not decline due to rotting, or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. Furthermore, it is the highest compressive strength, which is why it doesn't break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another reason concrete is famous is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile that it's possible to make a lot of it. Making use of different techniques and methods and techniques, you can design an concrete slab that has the texture, color or pattern you would like. You can even have experts create it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance services by a professional. You can quickly get rid of stains, dirt, and dust using the most basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs formed by pouring cement on the spot. There is a method we use for installing concrete on site so that we can guarantee substantial results. When we pour concrete, we have the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the appearance of the surface. It also lets us modify the size of the job on site if it is required. Based on its strengths, it's a fantastic choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's a drawback to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll pour a concrete slab on the spot, we need more machinery and tools like an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull floating. Additionally, we'll require more people to do the job. Thus, the expense of installing is higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are time-consuming. Curing concrete slabs by itself lasts up to 21 days. We will not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can conduct an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you don't want to wait that long then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. The slabs are created in a facility before being shipped straight over to the job site. Although you can personalize the size for the slab, making any adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly they are less costly and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are designed with the color pattern, or style you would like. Also, we can create a layout for your slabs according to your preferences. This option is only available when you select our concrete slab service. Otherwise, it will be difficult to create the design or style you'd like.
