What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a well-known structural element constructed from cast concrete. It's an even, horizontal concrete surface which is typically used for flooring or for a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate an welded wire mesh or steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
However, it is vital for an expert to calculate and make the correct measurements. Having the right thickness will impact the strength of the slab as well as the structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based on the building. For instance, in residential floor construction four inches is the usual thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness on buildings with frequent heavy use.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is a well-known construction material. For a long time, contractors constructed a variety of building structures. Concrete is the most popular choice for foundations and other development projects. Like other construction materials concrete is incredibly beneficial. Its advantages are:
Longevity and Durability
There is no more durable construction material that concrete. Maintenance and proper care makes concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material in this concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to control the flow energy. Due to its thermal mass, concrete can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce and increase indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials that have large thermal mass can be beneficial especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic material. It therefore does not decline due to rotting, or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. It also has significant compressive strength that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another thing that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. The material is so flexible it's possible to make a lot of it. Making use of different techniques and methods one can build a concrete slab that is the texture, color and design you prefer. Experts can help you design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is simple to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent maintenance maintenance from a professional. It is simple to get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using simple cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as formed by pouring cement on the ground. There is a method we use for setting up concrete on site and ensuring that we achieve significant outcomes. Concrete is poured gives us the ability to make last-minute changes regarding the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project in the field if needed. Thanks to its attributes, it's the perfect option for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's any downside to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab over the site and require additional tools and equipment, such as the use of a concrete mixer or a bull floating. We will also need more workers to complete the job. Therefore, the cost of installation is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be long-lasting. To cure concrete slabs alone can take up to 21 days. We will not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can conduct an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you're not ready to sit for that long then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs are created at a factory, and then shipped straight to the construction site. Although you can personalize the size for the slab, making any adjustments or urgent changes on the job is impossible. Unlike the ones poured directly, precast costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are created with the color pattern, or style you would like. They can also be customized with a design for your slabs according to your preferences. This feature is only available should you select our concrete slabs poured service. In other cases, it could be difficult to create the style or look you're looking for.
