What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an important structural element that is made from cast concrete. It's an even horizontal concrete slab, commonly used for floors or roofing. For durability and to ensure years in performance, contractors incorporate reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Also, it's important to get an expert calculate and present accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will influence the strength of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's size varies depending upon the specific project. For example, in residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness when building with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is a popular construction material. For years, contractors have constructed a variety of building structures. It's a typical choice in foundations and for other development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete has a lot of advantages. Its benefits include:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably not a more durable construction material that concrete. Proper care and upkeep will ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't any voids or porous areas in the slab of concrete. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to control the flow energy. Due to its thermal mass, concrete can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or boost indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are beneficial for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, including its resistance to many various elements. This includes its absence of organic matter. Therefore, it does not change its shape due to rotting and corrosion caused by high temperatures. Additionally, it has quite a strong compressive force that implies it will not break when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical spills and stains.
Another factor that makes concrete so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. The material is so flexible you can do a lot of it. By employing different methods and application and techniques, you can design a concrete slab that is the texture, color, and design you prefer. You can even have experts create it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is very simple to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent cleaning by a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust with basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the site. The process we follow is setting up concrete on site and ensuring that we achieve significant outcomes. The process of pouring concrete allows us the ability to make last-minute changes to the appearance of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the project on site if required. With its features, it's an ideal choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's any downside to this, it would be time and cost. As we pour a concrete slab to the location it is necessary to have more instruments and equipment, for instance, a concrete mixer and bull float. Additionally, we'll require more workers for the work. The installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are long-lasting. For the concrete slab to cure, it takes about 21 days. We don't leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs to set so we can do some quality checks before turning over the project. If you're not prepared to wait for that long then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs will be manufactured in a factory before being delivered directly onto the site of construction. However, you can tailor the size or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments or necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. Different from the ones that are poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are constructed with the color, design, or pattern of your choice. We are also able to customize a design for your slabs in accordance with your preference. The application is only available If you opt for our concrete slab poured services. Otherwise, it's difficult to attain the design or look you're after.
