What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed out of cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete surface that is commonly used as a floor or for a roof. To ensure long-lasting durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
It is also essential to hire an expert calculation and provide proper measurements. The right thickness can alter the strength of slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the particular project. For instance, in residential floor construction, 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches for buildings with frequent heavy use.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have employed it to construct a variety of building structures. It is a popular choice for foundations and other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is an excellent choice. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's not a more durable construction material than concrete. The proper care and maintenance can allow concrete structures to last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the life and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that there aren't any voids or porous areas within this concrete slab. This reduces the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. This is due to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass it can control indoor comfort and decrease or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful when you live in extreme temperatures. and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, that include its resistance against many various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. It therefore does not degrade because of rotting or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. It also has an impressive compressive strength that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another factor that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is so flexible that it's easy to make lots of it. With a variety of techniques and applications it is possible to create a concrete slab with the color, texture or pattern you would like. You can also have experts customize it, too.
Contrary to other building materials, concrete is easy to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance services by a professional. It is simple to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using simple cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as made by pouring the concrete on the ground. We follow a process for making concrete at the site which ensures that we can deliver substantial results. When we pour concrete, we have the flexibility to make changes to the layout of the surface. Additionally, we can alter the dimensions of the construction site when it is required. Because of its capabilities, it's an excellent choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's one downside to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab over the site and require additional instruments and equipment, for instance, the concrete mixer and bull float. There will also be a need for more people to perform the work. Thus, the expense of installing is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also difficult to work with. To cure concrete slabs alone takes up to 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with concrete that is still wet. We wait for the slabs to cure so we can do some quality checks before turning over the work. If you're not prepared to endure that much time, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are manufactured in a manufacturing facility and then delivered directly to the construction site. Although you can customize the dimensions or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments and last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Like the slabs you pour directly it is more affordable and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are created with the color design, or design you like. We can also customize a design for your slabs depending on your preference. This application is available only in the event that you opt for our concrete slab services. In the absence of this, it can be impossible to achieve the look or look you're looking for.
