What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed of cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth, horizontal concrete slab that is used as a floor or as a roof. To ensure the durability and longevity in performance, contractors incorporate an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary that you have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. A proper thickness will alter the strength of slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for buildings carrying heavy loads often.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. For a long time, contractors have used it to construct various construction structures. It's a standard choice for foundations , as well as other development projects. It is different from other construction materials because concrete is extremely beneficial. Its advantages include:
Durability and Longevity
There's probably not a more robust construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care can make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material in the concrete slab. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks or other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it is able to adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have significant thermal mass are ideal in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, such as its resistance to various elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. Thus, it will not suffer from rotting or burning caused by extreme heat. Furthermore, it has a high compressive strength, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete popular is its versatility. It is so adaptable that it's possible to make a lot of it. Employing various methods and applications one can build an attractive concrete slab using the color, texture and design you prefer. You can even have experts create it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is very simple to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance by a professional. It is simple to get rid of stains, dirt, as well as dust, using standard cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are created by pouring concrete on the ground. We use a specific procedure for setting up concrete on site, which allows us to guarantee significant results. Concrete is poured gives us the liberty to make last minute changes in the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to modify the size of the project onsite if necessary. Thanks to its attributes, it's an excellent choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab on site it is necessary to have more instruments and equipment, for instance, the concrete mixer and bull floating. Additionally, we'll require more workers to complete the work. Thus, the expense of installing is much higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are difficult to work with. To cure concrete slabs alone takes about 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with wet concrete. We allow the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can perform an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you're unwilling to put off waiting that long, then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. The slabs are produced in a plant and shipped straight over to the job site. Although you have the option of modifying the size for the slab, making any adjustments or final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured, precast costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are that are made using the color, design, or the texture you prefer. We also can customize a style for your slabs according to your personal preferences. This service is only available with our concrete slab poured services. If not, it's very difficult to design or style that you prefer.
