What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component made out of cast concrete. It's an even, horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a floor or roofing. To ensure long-term durability and years of use, contractors may add an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary to hire an expert calculation and supply accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will affect the integrity of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the type of project. For example, for residential floor construction 4 inches is the typical thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness on buildings with heavy loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a popular construction material. For decades, contractors have constructed a variety of building structures. It is a preferred choice for foundations and other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete has so many advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There may not be a more robust construction material than concrete. The proper care and maintenance will allow concrete structures to last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the life and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that we do not have any pores or voids in the concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to control the flow of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass, it can adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase indoor temperatures through absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass work especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, in particular its resistance to different elements. In addition, it lacks of organic material. This means it won't fall apart due to rotting nor the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has the highest compressive strength that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement 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 one can build a concrete slab in the color, texture, and design that you prefer. You can also have experts customize it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is very easy to maintain. It doesn't require routine upkeep by a professional. It is easy to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using common cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured slabs that are made by pouring concrete directly on the ground. There is a method we use for making concrete at the site, ensuring we deliver significant outcomes. Pouring concrete provides us with the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks regarding the design of the surface. It also allows us to modify the size of the project onsite if necessary. Because of its capabilities, it is a great choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a drawback to this, it's time and cost. Because we will pour a concrete slab over the site that requires more tools and equipment, such as cement mixers and a bull float. We will also need many more workers to perform the work. So, the price for installation is much higher. Poured concrete slabs can be laborious. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it can take as long as 21 days. We will not leave you with concrete that is wet. We allow concrete slabs to cure so we can conduct checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the project. If you're willing to wait that long then this is the one for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs are created by a manufacturer and then transported straight over to the job site. Though you can alter the dimensions that the slab is made, making modifications or late-night changes on site isn't feasible. The slabs are not poured directly it is more affordable and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are constructed with the color, pattern or style you would like. We can also customize a pattern for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This application is available only on the basis of our poured concrete slab services. In other cases, it could be difficult to create the design or design you'd like.
