What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a common structural component made of cast concrete. They are flat, horizontal concrete slab that is used as a floor and a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of service, contractors include steel mesh wire or steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Additionally, it is important for an expert to calculate and provide proper measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will affect the quality of the slab as well as the overall structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending upon the specific project. For instance, in residential flooring, 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness to build that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are a well-known construction material. For a long time, contractors employed it to construct a variety of construction structures. It is a preferred choice for foundations and other development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete has many advantages. Its benefits include:
Durability and long-term durability
There may not be a more durable construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it will allow concrete structures to last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that we do not have no voids or porous zones within the slab of concrete. This reduces the risk of cracking and other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass, which relates to its ability to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it's able to improve indoor comfort, and also reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass work in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, including its resistance to many various elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. Therefore, it cannot become degraded due to rotting or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. Additionally, it has significant compressive strength, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatments to concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement popular is its versatility. It is so adaptable that you can make a lot of it. Employing various methods and applications it is possible to create an attractive concrete slab using the texture, color, and pattern you like. You can even have experts create it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance care by a pro. You can easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured formed by pouring cement on the ground. We follow a method for installing concrete on the site and ensuring that we achieve significant outcomes. Concrete is poured gives us the ability to make last-minute changes to the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the work on the spot if required. With its features, it's the ideal option for custom concrete projects.
If there's one downside to this, it would be the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab on the ground there is a need for more instruments and equipment, for instance, cement mixers and a bull float. We'll also need additional workers to finish the work. The installation cost is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also laborious. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it takes about 21 days. We do not leave with concrete that is still wet. We wait for concrete slabs to cure so we can perform a quality check before turning over the work. If you don't want to wait for that long it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this type of slab is precast. The slabs are manufactured in a facility before being shipped directly towards the location of the project. While you are able to customize the dimensions that the slab is made, making modifications and late-night changes on site isn't feasible. Like the slabs you pour directly as precasts, precast costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs created with the color design, or pattern of your choice. We can also create a design for your slabs according to the design you like. This option is only available If you opt for our concrete slabs that are poured. If you don't, it's challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like.
