What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab is an important structural element that is made of concrete cast. The slab is flat horizontal concrete surface that is commonly employed as a floor, or as a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of operation, contractors install steel mesh wire or steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
In addition, it is crucial to hire an expert calculation and supply accurate measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will alter the strength of slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's size varies depending on the building. For example, in residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches for buildings with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is a popular construction material. Over the years, builders have utilized it to construct various building structures. It is an extremely popular option for foundations , as well as other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete is an excellent choice. Its advantages are:
Longevity and durability
There's probably no more sturdy construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance can help concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in the concrete slab. It also reduces the possibility of cracks or other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its large thermal mass improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by taking in natural heat. Materials that have significant thermal mass are ideal when you live in extreme temperatures. and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, which include its resistance to various elements. Of these is its lack of organic matter. It is therefore unable to fall apart due to rotting nor the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has the highest compressive strength that means it will not break 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 the most sought-after is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile that you can do a lot of it. Using different methods and applications, you can create a concrete slab that is the color, texture, and design of your choice. Experts can design it, too.
Contrary to other building materials, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance or care from a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust using a few basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as slabs created by pouring a concrete slab on the ground. There is a method we use for placing concrete on the ground, which allows us to guarantee significant outcomes. Concrete pouring gives us the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks in the design of the surface. It also lets us modify the size of the construction site when necessary. Due to its advantages, it makes a perfect choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a negative to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab on site we will need additional tools and equipment, such as cement mixers and a bull float. Also, we will require more workers to complete the work. Thus, the installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are time-consuming. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it could take up to 21 calendar days. We don't leave you with wet concrete. We let the slabs to set so we can conduct an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you don't want to sit for that long then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this type of slab is precast. They are manufactured in a factory and delivered straight over to the job site. Although you can personalize the size that the slab is made, making modifications or modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. Like the slabs you pour directly they are less costly and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are made with the color, pattern or style you would like. We can also customize a style for your slabs based on your preference. This application is available only if you choose our poured concrete slab services. If you don't, it's impossible to achieve the look or style you want.
