What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to an essential structural element composed of concrete cast. It's an even, vertical concrete surface typically used as a flooring or roofing. To ensure long-lasting durability and years of use, contractors may add reinforcement steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Additionally, it is important for an expert to calculate and give accurate measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will impact the integrity of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the project. For example, for residential floor construction, 4 inches is the typical thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for buildings with heavy loads frequently.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular construction material. For a long time, contractors have employed it to construct a variety of construction structures. It is a popular choice for foundations and other construction projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete has a lot of advantages. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and Longevity
There may not be a more durable construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance can help concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, it's able to adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. This means it won't decline due to rotting, or the rusting that is caused by heat. In addition, it has significant compressive strength, which ensures it will not crack when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatments on concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another feature that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so flexible that it's possible to do lots of it. With a variety of techniques and applications and techniques, you can design concrete slabs that have the color, texture, as well as the pattern you prefer. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent upkeep by a professional. It is simple to get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using simple cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs made by pouring the concrete on the site. We follow a procedure for installing concrete on site, ensuring we deliver significant results. Pouring concrete provides us with the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments regarding the design of the surface. It also allows us to modify the size that the project is it is required. Because of its capabilities, it's an ideal choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a negative to this plan, it's the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab to the location we will need additional equipment and tools, for example, mixing concrete and a bull float. We'll also need more people to do the work. Also, the installation price is higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are very time-consuming. To cure concrete slabs alone takes between 21 and 21 days. We will not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs ' curing time so we can do a quality check before turning over the work. If you're not prepared to be patient, this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this slab type is precast. The slabs are created at a factory and are then shipped straight onto the site of construction. Though you can alter the dimensions of the slab, making adjustments or quick changes on-site is impossible. Instead of being poured directly Precast is cheaper and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs designed with the color pattern, or style you would like. Also, we can create a layout for your slabs depending on the style you prefer. This feature is only accessible with our concrete slab service. If not, it's challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like.
