What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an essential structural element composed of cast concrete. It is a flat, horizontal concrete surface used as a floor and roofing. To ensure long-term durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary to get an expert calculate and take the proper measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will influence the structural integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the particular project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, 4 inches is the typical thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is one of the most popular construction materials. For many years, contractors have used it to create various construction structures. Concrete is the most popular choice when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete is extremely beneficial. Its advantages are:
Durability and longevity
There may not be a more robust construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that there aren't any voids or porous areas in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk of cracks and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass, which relates to its ability to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it is able to manage indoor comfort and lower or boost indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, including its resistance to many different elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic matter. It is therefore unable to fall apart due to rotting nor corrosion caused by high temperatures. In addition, it has quite a strong compressive force that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. Concrete is extremely flexible, it is possible to do a lot of it. With a variety of techniques and applications it is possible to create concrete slabs with the texture, color and design you prefer. You can also have experts customize it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance or care from a professional. You can get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are slabs created by pouring concrete over site. The process we follow is installing concrete on site which guarantees us to provide significant outcomes. Concrete pouring gives us the flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments regarding the design of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the project on site if required. Because of its capabilities, it's a good choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a drawback to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on the spot we will need additional instruments and equipment, for instance, an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull floating. There will also be a need for more people to perform the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are very time-consuming. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. It is not our intention to leave you with concrete that is still wet. We wait for concrete slabs to cure so we can do one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you don't want to endure that much time, then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are created in a facility before being shipped straight over to the job site. Although you can customize the dimensions for the slab, making any adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured, precast costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are designed with the color design, or pattern of your choice. We also can customize a design for your slabs, according to the design you like. This feature is only available If you opt for our concrete slabs poured service. In the absence of this, it can be difficult to create the design or style you'd like.
