What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an important structural element that is made of concrete cast. It's a flat horizontal concrete surface that is commonly used for floors or roofing. To ensure long-term durability and years of efficiency, contractors will add welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
It is also essential for an expert to calculate and provide the right measurements. Having the right thickness will influence the strength of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's size varies depending on the project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are a popular construction material. For a long time, contractors employed it for the construction of various building structures. Concrete is a well-known choice to build foundations and other projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete is an excellent choice. Its advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's probably not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care makes concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend the life and strength of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't any pores or voids in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances of cracks or other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it can improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or raise indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with great thermal mass are beneficial in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages including its resistance to many different elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. So, it doesn't get rotten or rusting caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has an impressive compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical spills and stains.
Another reason concrete is famous is its flexibility. Concrete is extremely flexible, you can do a great deal of it. Using different methods and applications one can build a concrete slab with the color, texture, and pattern of your preference. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is easy to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance by a professional. You can easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using common cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are created by pouring a concrete slab on the site. We follow a process for installing concrete on site and ensuring that we achieve significant outcomes. When we pour concrete, we have the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments to the design of the surface. It also permits us to modify the size of the project at the site, if it is required. Given its qualities, it's a good choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's one downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab on the ground we will need additional instruments and equipment, for instance, mixing concrete and a bull floating. Additionally, we'll need an additional workforce to do the work. Thus, the installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are slow to cure. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own is a process that can take up to 21 working days. The slabs are not left with wet concrete. We allow the slabs to dry so that we can perform an inspection before turning over the project. If you're unwilling to sit for that long we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this kind of slab is precast. They are manufactured at a factory and are then shipped straight at the place of work. While you are able to customize the dimensions or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are designed with the color pattern, or design of your choice. We are also able to create a custom style for your slabs according to your personal preferences. This is only possible when you use our concrete slab service. Otherwise, it's challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like to achieve.
