What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an essential structural element composed from cast concrete. They are flat horizontal concrete slab that is used for flooring or a roof. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors use welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
However, it is vital to hire an expert calculation and present accurate measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the project. For instance, in residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for structures that carry heavy loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. For a long time, contractors have employed it to build a variety of building structures. Concrete is a well-known choice to construct foundations and various development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete has the advantage of being durable. The advantages of concrete include:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably no more durable construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance could make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that we do not have any voids or porous areas in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it's capable of helping manage indoor comfort and lower or boost indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. This means it won't get rotten or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. In addition, it has very high compressive strengths that means it will not break when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another aspect that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is so flexible that it's possible to do lots of it. With a variety of techniques and applications one can build concrete slabs in the texture, color and design that you prefer. The experts can custom design it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance or care from a professional. It is easy to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust with the help of basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs made by pouring concrete on the site. We follow a procedure for making concrete at the site and ensuring that we achieve significant results. Concrete installation gives us liberty to make last minute changes to the layout of the surface. Additionally, we can modify the size of the project at the site, if required. Thanks to its attributes, it's an ideal choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's a drawback to this, it's the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab on the ground that requires more equipment and tools, such as mixing concrete and a bull float. There will also be a need for more workers to complete the job. So, the price for installation is much more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are costly to install. Curing concrete slabs by itself is a process that can take up to 21 working days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can perform an assessment of quality prior to turning over the work. If you're unwilling to put off waiting that long, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this kind of slab is precast. They are manufactured at a factory, and then shipped straight for the build site. Although you can customize the size that the slab is made, making modifications and last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Like the slabs you pour directly the precast slab is less expensive and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are created with the color design or design you like. You can also design a pattern to your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This feature is only accessible If you opt for our concrete slabs poured service. If not, it's impossible to achieve the look or look you're looking for.
