What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a popular structural element made of concrete cast. It's flat, horizontal concrete surface commonly employed as a floor, or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable of performance, contractors use the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Meanwhile, it is essential to employ an expert calculator and provide the right measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will affect the quality of the slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the particular project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for buildings with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely sought-after construction material. For a long time, contractors employed it to build a variety of construction structures. Concrete is the most popular choice to construct foundations and various development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has many advantages. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's no more durable construction material that concrete. The proper care and maintenance will 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 in a way that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the probability of cracks and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it can regulate indoor comfort and reduce or boost indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have great thermal mass are beneficial in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, that include its resistance against many various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. Therefore, it cannot suffer from rotting or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Additionally, it has quite a strong compressive force, which signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile that it's easy to make lots of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques you can make concrete slabs in the texture, color and pattern of your preference. There are experts who can customize it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent maintenance or care from a professional. You are able to easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is formed by pouring cement on the ground. We follow a particular procedure for creating concrete on the location so that we can guarantee substantial outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make changes to the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the job on site if required. Based on its strengths, it is a great choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's one downside to this plan, it's time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab onto the site there is a need for more instruments and equipment, for instance, an concrete mixer as well as a bull floating. Additionally, we'll need additional workers to finish the work. This means that the installation cost is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also laborious. To cure concrete slab alone takes up to 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can perform one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you're not ready to endure that much time, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this slab type is precast. The slabs are manufactured by a manufacturer and then transported straight onto the site of construction. Although you can customize the size to the slab, making adjustments or quick changes on-site is impossible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs created with the color design or design of your choice. We are also able to customize a layout for your slabs according to the design you like. This application is available only when you select our concrete slabs poured service. If you don't, it's impossible to achieve the look or style that you prefer.
