What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a structural feature that is commonly made of cast concrete. The slab is flat horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a floor or as a roof. For durability and to ensure years of use, contractors may add the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
In addition, it is crucial to have an expert calculate and present accurate measurements. A proper thickness will affect the quality of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness differs based upon the specific project. For example, in residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness on buildings that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. Over the years, builders have used it to create various building structures. It is an extremely popular option in foundations and for other development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has many advantages. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and longevity
There's probably not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can allow concrete structures to last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the life span and strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't no voids or porous zones within this concrete slab. This reduces the risk that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. It refers to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it's able to help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce or boost indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are helpful in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, in particular its resistance to different elements. Of these is its lack of organic material. Therefore, it is unable to degrade because of rotting or burning caused by extreme heat. Furthermore, it has quite a strong compressive force, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another reason concrete is extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and it's possible to do lots of it. By using a variety methods and tools you can make a concrete slab with the texture, color and design that you prefer. There are experts who can customize it, too.
Contrary to other building materials, concrete is very simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance by a professional. You can easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using common cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the ground. We follow a set of steps for installing concrete on site which guarantees us to provide significant outcomes. When we pour concrete, we have the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments on the design and layout of the surface. It also permits us to adjust the size of the construction site when it is required. Due to its advantages, it makes a perfect choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's an issue to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab at the site that requires more tools and equipment like a concrete mixer and bull float. There will also be a need for more people to perform the job. This means that the installation cost is much more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are laborious. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it takes between 21 and 21 days. The slabs are not left with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs to cure so we can do an inspection before turning over the project. If you're not prepared to endure that much time, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this slab type is precast. The slabs are produced in a facility before being shipped directly over to the job site. While you are able to customize the dimensions that the slab is made, making modifications or any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. Different from the ones that are poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are that are made using the color, pattern or design of your choice. Also, we can create a style for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This option is only available when you select our concrete slab services. Otherwise, it will be difficult to create the style or style you'd like to achieve.
