What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an essential structural element composed of cast concrete. It's a flat, horizontal concrete surface which is typically used for floors or as a roof. To ensure longevity and years of performance, contractors add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary for an expert to calculate and take the proper measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will impact the strength of the slab as well the entire structure. The slab's size varies depending on the design. For example, in residential floor construction 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness in buildings carrying heavy loads often.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is a popular construction material. For many years, contractors have used it to create various building structures. It is a preferred choice for foundations and other construction projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete is incredibly beneficial. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and longevity
There's probably no more durable construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can ensure that concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk of cracking and other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with significant thermal mass are ideal for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages such as its resistance to various elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. Therefore, it cannot decline due to rotting, or rusting caused by excessive heat. Furthermore, it is a high compressive strength, which implies it will not break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile you can create a variety of it. Using different methods and applications it is possible to create a concrete slab with the color, texture and design that you prefer. You can even have experts create it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance by a professional. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as made by pouring concrete on site. We follow a procedure for installing concrete on site which guarantees us to provide significant results. Pouring concrete provides us with the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments in the design of the surface. Additionally, we can modify the size of the construction site when necessary. Its advantages mean that it makes a perfect choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Because we are pouring a concrete slab onto the site we will need additional equipment and tools, such as one concrete mixer, and a bull float. We'll also require additional workers to finish the job. Thus, the installation cost is higher. Poured concrete slabs are lengthy. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own could take up to 21 calendar days. We do not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We let the slabs ' to cure, so we can do an inspection of the quality before handing over the project. If you're unwilling to wait for that long then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs are produced in a plant and shipped directly onto the site of construction. Although you have the option of modifying the dimensions and shape of your slabs, making changes and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. The slabs are not poured directly it is more affordable and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are that are made using the color, pattern, or texture of your preference. We are also able to customize a pattern for your slabs depending on your preference. This service is only available in the event that you opt for our poured concrete slab services. In the absence of this, it can be challenging to achieve the design or design you'd like.
