What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed of cast concrete. It's an even, horizontal concrete slab that is employed as a floor or as a roof. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors use an welded wire mesh or steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Additionally, it is important to have an expert calculate and give accurate measurements. A properly measured thickness will influence the strength of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the particular project. For example, in residential flooring 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for construction with heavy loads frequently.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have used it to build various building structures. It is an extremely popular option for foundations as well as other development projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete has a lot of advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably no more robust construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care can make concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within the slab of concrete. So, reducing the likelihood of cracking and other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to control the flow energy. Due to its thermal mass, it's able to control indoor comfort and decrease or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages among them its resistance various elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. It therefore does not become degraded due to rotting or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. Furthermore, it is significant compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another feature that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is extremely flexible, you can do a lot of it. Making use of different techniques and methods it is possible to create a concrete slab with the texture, color and pattern you like. There are experts who can customize it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular cleaning by a professional. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs created by pouring a concrete slab on the spot. There is a method we use for placing concrete on the spot in order to deliver impressive outcomes. Concrete pouring gives us the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments on the design and layout of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project at the site, if needed. With its features, it is a great choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there is a downside to this plan, it's time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab on site We will require more instruments and equipment, for instance, the concrete mixer and bull floating. Additionally, we'll need more people to do the job. This means that the installation cost is more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are costly to install. Curing concrete slabs by itself takes about 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs to set so we can do a quality check before turning over the work. If you're unable to sit for that long then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this type of slab is precast. The slabs are manufactured in a factory and delivered directly at the place of work. Even though you can modify the size or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments or urgent changes on the job is impossible. Like the slabs you pour directly Precast is cheaper and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are which are crafted with the color pattern, or design of your choice. Also, we can create a design for your slabs according to your preferences. This feature is only available should you select the concrete slab services we offer. If you don't, it's difficult to create the design or style that you prefer.
