What is a concrete slab?
Concrete slabs are the most popular structural element made out of cast concrete. It's a flat, horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a flooring or for a roof. To ensure long-lasting durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Also, it's important to get an expert calculate and take the proper measurements. A properly measured thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the project. For instance, in residential flooring four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for buildings that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are an extremely well-known construction material. For a long time, contractors employed it to build a variety of building structures. Concrete is a well-known choice for foundations and other development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete is incredibly beneficial. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and longevity
There is no more sturdy construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care can make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in the slab of concrete. This reduces the risk of cracks and other injuries.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass, which refers to its ability to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass it can improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or raise indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass work especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages such as its resistance to different elements. This includes its absence of organic material. Thus, it will not suffer from rotting or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Additionally, it has the highest compressive strength that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another quality that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. The material is so flexible it is possible to do a lot of it. Employing various methods and applications for creating an attractive concrete slab using the color, texture, and design of your choice. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance from a professional. It is easy to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using common cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the ground. We use a specific procedure for making concrete at the site so that we can guarantee substantial results. When we pour concrete, we have the flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments to the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project in the field if needed. Its advantages mean that it's an ideal choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a negative to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we pour a concrete slab onto the site it is necessary to have more machinery and tools like a concrete mixer and bull floating. We'll also require extra workers to complete the work. Also, the installation price is higher. Poured concrete slabs are time-consuming. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it lasts up to 21 days. We will not leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs to cure so we can do one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you're unwilling to endure that much time, then this is the one for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs of this kind are precast. They are manufactured in a facility before being shipped directly into the building site. Although you have the option of modifying the size of the slabbut making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly they are less costly and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are created with the color design, or texture of your preference. They can also be customized with a style for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This service is only available on the basis of our concrete slabs that are poured. In other cases, it could be difficult to create the style or style you desire.
