What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an important structural element that is made of concrete cast. The slab is flat horizontal concrete surface , which is often used for flooring or roofing. To ensure long-lasting durability and years of performance, contractors add the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Additionally, it is important for an expert to calculate and make the correct measurements. A properly measured thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the building. For example, in residential floor construction, four inches is the usual thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for buildings with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular construction material. For a long time, contractors have used it to construct various construction structures. It is a popular choice for foundations , as well as other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has so many advantages. The advantages of concrete include:
Longevity and Durability
There is no more durable construction material that concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it can help concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that we do not have many voids, or porous spaces within the concrete slab. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks and other injuries.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it is able to manage indoor comfort and lower or increase indoor temperatures through absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, in particular its resistance to various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. It therefore does not fall apart due to rotting nor burning caused by extreme heat. In addition, it has an extremely high compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. It's also possible to apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another quality that makes concrete popular is its versatility. Concrete is extremely flexible, it's easy to make lots of it. Employing various methods and applications one can build a concrete slab with the color, texture and design that you prefer. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance maintenance from a professional. It is simple to get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the spot. We follow a set of steps for setting up concrete on site in order to deliver impressive outcomes. When we pour concrete, we have the ability to make last-minute changes in the design of our surface. It also permits us to modify the size of the project in the field if necessary. Given its qualities, it is a great choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's any downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on the spot and require additional devices and tools, including an concrete mixer as well as a bull float. We will also need more people to do the work. Thus, the expense of installing is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also laborious. For the concrete slab to cure, it takes up to 21 days. We don't leave you with concrete that is wet. We allow concrete slabs to cure so we can perform one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you don't want to wait that long then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. The slabs are produced in a factory before being delivered straight towards the location of the project. Though you can alter the size and shape of your slabs, making changes or late-night changes on site isn't feasible. Like the slabs you pour directly in the slab, precast costs less money and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are built with the color design, or texture of your choice. We can also customize a design for your slabs, according to your personal preferences. This option is only available when you select our concrete slabs poured service. In the absence of this, it can be impossible to achieve the look or design you'd like.
