What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a common structural component made of concrete cast. It's an even, horizontal concrete slab that is used for floors or as a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of performance, contractors add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Also, it's important to hire an expert calculation and present accurate measurements. The correct thickness will alter the strength of slab as well as the whole structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the particular project. For instance, in the case of residential flooring 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for buildings that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is a very popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have used it to build various building structures. It is a preferred choice to construct foundations and various development projects. It is different from other construction materials because concrete has so many advantages. Its advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's no more robust construction material than concrete. The proper care and maintenance can make concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that we do not have any voids or porous areas within the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass, it's capable of helping maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are helpful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, such as its resistance to various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to get rotten or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. In addition, it has very high compressive strengths, which means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another characteristic that makes concrete popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile that it is possible to do a lot of it. With a variety of techniques and applications and techniques, you can design concrete slabs that have the color, texture, and pattern of your preference. Experts can design it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular upkeep by a professional. You can get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as slabs created by pouring concrete over the site. We use a specific procedure for placing concrete on the spot and ensuring that we achieve significant results. Pouring concrete provides us with the flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments to the appearance of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project on site if required. Based on its strengths, it's the perfect option for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's a negative to this, it's the time and expense. Since we'll pour a concrete slab onto the site there is a need for more devices and tools, including one concrete mixer, and a bull floating. Additionally, we'll need more workers to complete the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be very time-consuming. To cure concrete slab alone takes between 21 and 21 days. We will not leave you with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs ' to cure so we can do an inspection before turning over the project. If you're unable to sit for that long this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this slab type is precast. The slabs can be made at a factory and are then shipped straight onto the site of construction. While you are able to customize the size in the slab, making adjustments and final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. Different from the ones that are poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are which are crafted with the color pattern or style you would like. We can also create a style for your slabs based on your preference. This option is only available when you use the concrete slab services we offer. In other cases, it could be hard to achieve the look or style that you prefer.
