What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to an extremely popular structural component made from cast concrete. It's flat, horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a flooring or roofing. To ensure long-term durability and years of operation, contractors install welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Furthermore, it is necessary to get an expert calculate to provide accurate measurements. The right thickness can impact the integrity of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's size varies depending upon the specific project. For instance, in residential flooring, four inches is the usual thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for structures which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is one of the most popular construction materials. For a long time, contractors have employed it to build a variety of construction structures. It's a standard choice to build foundations and other projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is incredibly beneficial. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and Longevity
There's not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. The proper care and maintenance can make concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material in this concrete slab. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass, it has the ability to regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by absorption of natural heat. Materials with the highest thermal mass will be useful to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, including its resistance to many various elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. It therefore does not get rotten or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Furthermore, it is very high compressive strengths that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another quality that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that you can make a lot of it. Making use of different techniques and methods the possibility of creating an attractive concrete slab using the color, texture, or pattern you would like. Experts can design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance by a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are created by pouring concrete over site. We follow a method for making concrete at the site and ensuring that we achieve significant outcomes. Pouring concrete provides us with the ability to make last-minute changes in the design of our surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project on site if needed. Its advantages mean that it's an ideal choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's one downside to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab on the spot that requires more tools and equipment like the concrete mixer and bull float. Additionally, we'll need more workers to complete the job. The installation cost is much more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be laborious. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it lasts up to 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs to cure so we can perform an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the project. If you're willing to sit for that long then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are made in a manufacturing facility and then delivered straight towards the location of the project. While you are able to customize the size of the slabbut making adjustments and urgent changes on the job is impossible. Like the slabs you pour directly that are precast, it costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are created with the color design or texture of your choice. We can also create a design for your slabs depending on your preference. This is only possible should you select the concrete slab services we offer. Otherwise, it will be hard to achieve the look or design you'd like.
