What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an extremely popular structural component made of cast concrete. The slab is flat horizontal concrete surface used as a floor or for a roof. To ensure the durability and longevity of operation, contractors install an welded wire mesh or steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
However, it is vital for an expert to calculate and make the correct measurements. A properly measured thickness will affect the quality of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the project. For example, in residential floor construction 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness when building that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. Over the years, builders have employed it to build a variety of building structures. It is a popular choice when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Like other construction materials concrete is extremely beneficial. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's not a more durable construction material that concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that we do not have no voids or porous zones in the concrete slab. So, we can reduce the risk of cracking and other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. This is due to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass it can manage indoor comfort and lower or raise indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with the highest thermal mass will be useful in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, including its resistance to many different elements. Of these is its lack of organic material. This means it won't decline due to rotting, or corrosion due to heat. Furthermore, it has very high compressive strengths that means it will not break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical staining and spills.
Another thing that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile you can do a lot of it. Employing various methods and applications and techniques, you can design concrete slabs in the color, texture and pattern of your preference. Experts can design it, too.
Contrary to other building materials, concrete is easy to maintain. It does not require regular cleaning by a professional. You can get rid of stains, dirt, as well as dust, using standard cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured that are made by pouring concrete directly on the ground. We follow a method for placing concrete on the spot to ensure we get significant outcomes. Concrete installation gives us flexibility to make last-minute tweaks in the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions that the project is necessary. Thanks to its attributes, it's an excellent choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab at the site there is a need for more equipment and tools, for example, the use of a concrete mixer or a bull floating. There will also be a need for more people to do the job. Also, the installation price is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are slow to cure. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own takes between 21 and 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs to dry so that we can conduct an inspection before turning over the work. If you're not prepared to put off waiting that long, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs will be manufactured in a factory and delivered directly towards the location of the project. Although you can personalize the dimensions that the slab is made, making modifications or final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly that are precast, it costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs which are crafted with the color pattern, or style you would like. They can also be customized with a design for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This application is available only when you use our concrete slabs that are poured. In other cases, it could be difficult to get the design or design you'd like.
