What Is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an essential structural element composed out of cast concrete. It's an even horizontal concrete surface commonly utilized as a floor or as a roof. For long-lasting and durable of service, contractors include the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Additionally, it is important that you have an expert calculate to provide accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well the entire structure. The slab's size varies depending on the construction. For instance, in residential floor construction four inches is the usual thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build that carry heavy loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely sought-after construction material. For a long time, contractors have constructed a variety of building structures. Concrete is the most popular choice to construct foundations and various development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has the advantage of being durable. Its advantages include:
Longevity, Durability, and Durability
There's probably not a more durable construction material that concrete. A proper maintenance and care makes concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have any pores or voids within this concrete slab. It also reduces the possibility of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it can maintain indoor comfort and lessen and increase indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are beneficial in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, including its resistance to many various elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. So, it doesn't change its shape due to rotting and the formation of rust due to excessive heat. In addition, it has very high compressive strengths that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another quality that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. Concrete is so flexible that it's possible to make a lot of it. Using different methods and applications you can make concrete slabs with the texture, color, and pattern that you want. Experts can help you design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance by a professional. It is simple to get rid of dirt, stains and dust using the most basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs made by pouring the concrete on the site. We follow a particular procedure for creating concrete on the location which ensures that we can deliver substantial results. Pouring concrete gives us the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments to the look of the surface. It also lets us alter the dimensions of the construction site when needed. Its advantages mean that it's a good choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's any downside to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on the site we will need additional tools and equipment, like a concrete mixer and bull floating. Additionally, we'll require extra workers to complete the work. Also, the installation price is much more expensive. Concrete slabs that have been poured are long-lasting. A concrete slab that is cured on its own can take as long as 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with wet concrete. We allow the slabs to cure so we can perform some quality checks before turning over the work. Unless you are willing to be patient, then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this slab type is precast. The slabs are created at a factory and are then shipped directly onto the site of construction. Even though you can modify the dimensions and shape of your slabs, making changes or modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured as precasts, precast costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are that are made using the color, pattern or style you would like. They can also be customized with a pattern to your slabs depending on your preference. This service is only available should you select our concrete slabs that are poured. In the absence of this, it can be very difficult to design or look you're looking for.
