What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a structural feature that is commonly made of cast concrete. It's a flat, horizontal concrete surface commonly utilized as a floor or a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of service, contractors include the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Additionally, it is important to have an expert calculate and supply accurate measurements. The right thickness can impact the strength of the slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the building. For example, in residential flooring, 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for structures with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely well-known construction material. For decades, contractors have constructed a variety of construction structures. Concrete is the most popular choice when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete has so many advantages. Its benefits include:
Durability and long-term durability
There may not be a more durable construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care can ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that we do not have the appearance of voids or porous regions in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the probability of cracks or other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass, which relates to its ability to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its high thermal mass, concrete can regulate indoor comfort and reduce or raise indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with large thermal mass can be beneficial in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. Of these is its lack of organic material. This means it won't suffer from rotting or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. Furthermore, it is an impressive compressive strength, which signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another feature that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile it's possible to do lots of it. Through a variety or methods you can make an concrete slab that has the color, texture, and design that you prefer. The experts can custom design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can easily rid yourself of dirt, stains and dust using the most basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs created by pouring concrete on site. There is a method we use for installing concrete on the site which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. Concrete pouring gives us the ability to make last-minute changes to the look of the surface. Additionally, we can modify the size of the project in the field if required. Thanks to its attributes, it's a fantastic choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's any downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab over the site the site, we require more instruments and equipment, for instance, the use of a concrete mixer or a bull float. We will also need additional workers to finish the work. So, the price for installation is higher. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are very time-consuming. To cure concrete slabs alone can take as long as 21 days. We do not leave with wet concrete. We allow the slabs to set so we can conduct an inspection before turning over the project. If you don't want to wait that long, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are made at a factory, and then shipped directly onto the site of construction. Although you have the option of modifying the dimensions in the slab, making adjustments and last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Instead of being poured directly Precast is cheaper and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are constructed with the color, pattern or texture of your choice. We can also customize a layout for your slabs according to your personal preferences. This feature is only available when you use our concrete slab poured services. In other cases, it could be very difficult to design or look you're after.
