What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab is a common structural component made from cast concrete. It's a flat horizontal concrete surface commonly utilized as a floor or for a roof. For durability and to ensure years of service, contractors include welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Also, it's important to hire an expert calculation and provide proper measurements. Having the right thickness will influence the strength of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the structure. For example, in residential flooring, 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for construction carrying heavy loads often.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is one of the most sought-after construction materials. For decades, contractors have employed it for the construction of various building structures. Concrete is the most popular choice for foundations , as well as other development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete is so advantageous. Its advantages include:
Longevity, Durability, and Durability
There may not be a more robust construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can ensure that concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that we do not have any gaps or porous areas in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the probability that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass, which relates to its ability to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it can manage indoor comfort and lower or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, which include its resistance to different elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. So, it doesn't change its shape due to rotting and the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. Additionally, it has quite a strong compressive force that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another reason concrete is so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. It is so adaptable that you can create a variety of it. Employing various methods and applications, you can create concrete slabs in the color, texture or pattern you would like. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is very simple to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance by a professional. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust using a few basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as that are made by pouring concrete directly on the spot. We use a specific procedure for installing concrete on the site, ensuring we deliver significant results. Concrete installation gives us possibility of making last-minute modifications regarding the design of the surface. It also allows us to adjust the size of the project at the site, if required. Due to its characteristics, it's the ideal option to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there is a downside to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on the spot it is necessary to have more equipment and tools, such as the concrete mixer and bull float. Additionally, we'll require more people to perform the work. Thus, the expense of installing is much higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are costly to install. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own takes up to 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can perform an inspection before turning over the work. If you're not willing to wait that long, then this is the one for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. The slabs are produced at a factory and are then shipped directly into the building site. However, you can tailor the size and shape of your slabs, making changes and last-minute changes onsite is impossible. The slabs are not poured directly, precast costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are which are crafted with the color design or pattern of your choice. Also, we can create a pattern for your slabs depending on your preference. This is only possible on the basis of our concrete slab services. In the absence of this, it can be difficult to attain the design or style that you prefer.
