What is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are the most popular structural element made of cast concrete. It's flat horizontal concrete slab that is used for flooring or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable of performance, contractors add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Additionally, it is important to hire an expert calculation and make the correct measurements. The correct thickness will affect the integrity of the slab as well the entire structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the building. For instance, in residential flooring, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness to build with heavy loads frequently.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. For decades, contractors have constructed a variety of building structures. It's a typical choice for foundations and other construction projects. Like other construction materials concrete has a lot of advantages. Its advantages are:
Durability and longevity
There's no more sturdy construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can help concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the longevity and durability of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that there aren't gaps or pores in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This refers to its ability to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it has the ability to improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages including its resistance to many different elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. So, it doesn't get rotten or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. Furthermore, it is quite a strong compressive force that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical spills and stains.
Another characteristic that makes concrete so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. Concrete is very flexible and it's possible to do lots of it. Employing various methods and applications and techniques, you can design an attractive concrete slab using the color, texture, and pattern of your preference. Experts can design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent cleaning by a professional. You can get rid of dirt, stains and dust using a few basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured made by pouring the concrete on the spot. We follow a set of steps for placing concrete on the spot which guarantees us to provide significant results. Pouring concrete gives us the ability to make last-minute changes to the look of the surface. It also allows us to alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if necessary. Based on its strengths, it's a good choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's any downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Because we will pour a concrete slab to the location and require additional machinery and tools like mixing concrete and a bull floating. We'll also require many more workers to perform the job. Therefore, the cost of installation is much higher. Poured concrete slabs can be lengthy. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs ' to cure so we can conduct an assessment of quality prior to turning over the work. If you're not willing to be patient, we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this slab type is precast. The slabs are created in a factory before being delivered directly for the build site. While you are able to customize the size to the slab, making adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. The slabs are not poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs created with the color pattern or style you would like. We can also create a pattern to your slabs according to your preferences. This option is only available when you use the concrete slab services we offer. In the absence of this, it can be difficult to attain the design or style you want.
