What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab is a well-known structural element constructed from cast concrete. It's an even horizontal concrete slab that is employed as a floor or for a roof. To ensure longevity and years of performance, contractors can add an welded wire mesh or steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
While it's also important to hire an expert calculation and give accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will affect the integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the particular project. For example, in residential flooring, four inches is the usual thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for buildings that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most sought-after construction materials. For years, contractors have constructed a variety of building structures. It is a common choice when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Its advantages include:
Durability and Longevity
There's no more sturdy construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't the appearance of voids or porous regions in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances of cracking or other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to control the flow energy. Because of its thermal mass it can regulate indoor comfort and reduce or boost indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, like its resistance different elements. This includes its absence of organic material. It therefore does not decay due to rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. In addition, it has an impressive compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another feature that makes concrete popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile that you can do a great deal of it. Through a variety or methods and techniques, you can design a concrete slab that is the texture, color and design that you prefer. You can even have experts create it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance care by a pro. You can easily rid yourself of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs slabs created by pouring concrete over the site. We use a specific procedure for making concrete at the site, which allows us to guarantee significant results. Pouring concrete gives us opportunity to make last-minute adjustments regarding the design of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the project in the field if required. Its advantages mean that it's an ideal choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's any downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on site the site, we require more tools and equipment like an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull floating. We'll also need many more workers to perform the work. Thus, the installation cost is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be slow to cure. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own is a process that can take up to 21 working days. We do not leave with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs to set so we can do one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you're unable to endure that much time, then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this slab type is precast. The slabs are produced in a factory before being delivered directly for the build site. Although you have the option of modifying the dimensions or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments or quick changes on-site is impossible. Instead of being poured directly Precast is cheaper and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are built with the color design or pattern of your choice. You can also design a style for your slabs according to your personal preferences. This service is available only in the event that you opt for our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it will be difficult to create the design or style you'd like to achieve.
