What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a structural feature that is commonly made from cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth, horizontal concrete surface employed as a floor, or a roof. To ensure durability and years of performance, contractors use the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
However, it is vital that you have an expert calculate and provide the right measurements. The right thickness can affect the integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's size varies depending upon the specific project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, four inches is the usual thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for structures that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are a well-known construction material. For many years, contractors have constructed a variety of construction structures. It's a typical choice to build foundations and other projects. Different from other construction materials concrete is an excellent choice. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably no more robust construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care can help concrete structures last for decades. 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. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't any gaps or porous areas within the concrete slab. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks and other injuries.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it can regulate indoor comfort and reduce or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass work to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, including its resistance to many various elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to degrade because of rotting or corrosion caused by high temperatures. Furthermore, it is an extremely high compressive strength that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatment on concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement popular is its flexibility. Concrete is extremely flexible, you can make a lot of it. Employing various methods and applications and techniques, you can design concrete slabs that have the color, texture or pattern you would like. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is extremely simple to maintain. It doesn't require regular cleaning by a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs that are made by pouring concrete directly on the spot. We follow a method for setting up concrete on site to ensure we get significant results. Concrete installation gives us flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments regarding the design of the surface. It also lets us modify the size of the project at the site, if necessary. Given its qualities, it's an ideal choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's an issue to this, it's time and cost. Because we will pour a concrete slab on the ground we will need additional equipment and tools, for example, an concrete mixer as well as a bull float. There will also be a need for an additional workforce to do the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is higher. Poured concrete slabs can be time-consuming. 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 concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can conduct one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you don't want the time to wait, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this slab type is precast. The slabs are produced at a factory, and then shipped directly towards the location of the project. You can however customize the dimensions of the slabbut making adjustments and urgent changes on the job is impossible. Different from the ones that are poured directly in the slab, precast costs less money and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are constructed with the color, design, or design of your choice. We can also customize a pattern to your slabs depending on your preference. This service is available only with our concrete slab services. Otherwise, it's challenging to achieve the design or look you're after.
