What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a common structural component made of concrete cast. It's an even horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a floor or a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of performance, contractors add reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
While it's also important to have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. Having the right thickness will impact the integrity of the slab as well as the structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based on the structure. For instance, in the case of residential flooring, four inches is the usual thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for structures carrying heavy loads often.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is a popular construction material. For a long time, contractors employed it for the construction of various building structures. Concrete is the most popular choice for foundations and other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is so advantageous. The advantages of concrete include:
Longevity and durability
There's not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance will allow concrete structures to last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within this concrete slab. So, reducing the likelihood of cracks or other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Due to its thermal mass, concrete can adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce and increase indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are helpful to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages like its resistance different elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. Thus, it will not become degraded due to rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. It also has an impressive compressive strength that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another reason concrete is popular is its flexibility. The material is so flexible you can create a variety of it. Making use of different techniques and methods that allow you to make a concrete slab in the texture, color, as well as the pattern you prefer. You can even have experts create it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance care by a pro. You can effortlessly get rid of dirt, stains as well as dust, using standard cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured slabs created by pouring concrete over site. The process we follow is placing concrete on the spot, which allows us to guarantee significant results. Concrete installation gives us freedom to make last-minute changes to the design of the surface. It also allows us to adjust the size of the job on site if needed. Due to its characteristics, it's the perfect option for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's an issue to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll pour a concrete slab on the site there is a need for more machinery and tools like mixing concrete and a bull float. Additionally, we'll require more workers for the work. Also, the installation price is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also time-consuming. Curing concrete slabs by itself takes up to 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs to dry so that we can perform an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the work. If you're not prepared to put off waiting that long, we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this kind of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed in a factory and delivered straight towards the location of the project. Even though you can modify the size or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments and late-night changes on site isn't feasible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured the precast slab is less expensive and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs made with the color, design, or design you like. We can also customize a pattern for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This feature is only available If you opt for our concrete slab service. Otherwise, it will be difficult to create the style or style that you prefer.
