What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to an essential structural element composed of concrete cast. It's flat, vertical concrete surface typically used as a floor or roofing. To ensure the durability and longevity in performance, contractors incorporate an welded wire mesh or steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
However, it is vital for an expert to calculate and give accurate measurements. A proper thickness will alter the strength of slab as well as the whole structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the design. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, 4 inches is the typical thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches for buildings with heavy loads frequently.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. Over the years, builders have used it to build various building structures. It's a typical choice in foundations and for other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete is incredibly beneficial. Its advantages are:
Durability and Longevity
There's probably not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance can make concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in the slab of concrete. It also reduces the possibility of cracks and other injuries.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with large thermal mass can be beneficial when you live in extreme temperatures. and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, among them its resistance different elements. In addition, it lacks of organic matter. It is therefore unable to change its shape due to rotting and an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Furthermore, it is significant compressive strength, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and you can make a lot of it. With a variety of techniques and applications the possibility of creating concrete slabs that have the texture, color as well as the pattern you prefer. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is extremely easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance services by a professional. You are able to easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs created by pouring concrete on the ground. There is a method we use for installing concrete on site which guarantees us to provide significant results. Concrete is poured gives us the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the appearance of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the project in the field if required. Thanks to its attributes, it is a great choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's an issue to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we pour a concrete slab on the site there is a need for more equipment and tools, such as the use of a concrete mixer or a bull floating. We will also need more workers for the work. The installation cost is more expensive. Concrete slabs that have been poured are lengthy. Curing concrete slabs by itself could take up to 21 calendar days. Our goal is to not leave you with wet concrete. We allow the slabs to set so we can do an inspection of the quality before handing over the project. If you're not prepared to sit for that long this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this slab type is precast. They are manufactured at a factory, and then shipped directly for the build site. Although you can personalize the dimensions to the slab, making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. Unlike the ones poured directly that are precast, it costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are of concrete that have the color, pattern or pattern of your choice. You can also design a design for your slabs depending on your preference. This service is only available if you choose our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it's difficult to create the design or look you're looking for.
