What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed of concrete cast. It's flat, horizontal concrete surface that is commonly used for flooring or a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of performance, contractors use an welded wire mesh or steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
In addition, it is crucial to have an expert calculate and make the correct measurements. Having the right thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the project. For instance, in residential floor construction, 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for structures with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are an extremely sought-after construction material. For a long time, contractors used it to create various construction structures. It is a popular choice to build foundations and other projects. It is different from other construction materials because concrete has the advantage of being durable. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and Longevity
There's probably no more durable construction material than concrete. The proper care and maintenance could make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that we do not have no voids or porous zones within the slab of concrete. It also reduces the possibility of cracking and other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, concrete can manage indoor comfort and lower or increase temperatures in the indoor space by taking in natural heat. Materials with great thermal mass are beneficial especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, in particular its resistance to various elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic material. Thus, it will not get rotten or the rusting that is caused by heat. Furthermore, it is a relatively high compressive strength, which is why it doesn't break when squeezed. You can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another aspect that makes concrete popular is its versatility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that it is possible to do a lot of it. Making use of different techniques and methods, you can create a concrete slab that is the color, texture and design you prefer. The experts can custom design it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is simple to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance or care from a professional. You can effortlessly get rid of dirt, stains as well as dust, using standard cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is that are made by pouring concrete directly on the ground. We use a specific procedure for pouring concrete onto the surface in order to deliver impressive results. When we pour concrete, we have the ability to make last-minute changes in the design of our surface. It also lets us alter the dimensions of the job on site if it is required. Given its qualities, it's an excellent choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a negative to this plan, it's time and cost. Because we will pour a concrete slab on the site we will need additional tools and equipment, such as one concrete mixer, and a bull float. There will also be a need for extra workers to complete the work. Thus, the expense of installing is much higher. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are time-consuming. A concrete slab that is cured on its own takes about 21 days. We don't leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs to cure so we can perform a quality check before turning over the project. If you're not ready the time to wait, then this is the one for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this type of slab is precast. The slabs are made in a plant and shipped directly at the place of work. Although you can customize the size that the slab is made, making modifications or last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Instead of being poured directly, precast costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are made with the color, design or the texture you prefer. We are also able to create a custom layout for your slabs according to your personal preferences. This service is only available should you select our poured concrete slab services. If not, it's difficult to get the design or style that you prefer.
