What is a concrete slab?
Concrete slabs are a well-known structural element constructed out of cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete slab, commonly utilized as a floor or for a roof. To ensure longevity and years in performance, contractors incorporate the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary to employ an expert calculator and present accurate measurements. A proper thickness will impact the integrity of the slab, as well as the entire structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the type of project. For instance, in residential floor construction, 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for buildings with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. Over the years, builders have employed it to construct a variety of building structures. It is a common choice for foundations , as well as other development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete is incredibly beneficial. The advantages of concrete include:
Longevity and durability
There's probably not a more durable construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care will allow concrete structures to last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't the appearance of voids or porous regions in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the probability for cracks as well as other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it has the ability to regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages that include its resistance against many various elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. Thus, it will not fall apart due to rotting nor the formation of rust due to excessive heat. In addition, it has a relatively high compressive strength that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. You can also apply concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another feature that makes concrete so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. Concrete is extremely flexible, it is possible to do a lot of it. Using different methods and applications you can make concrete slabs that have the texture, color and pattern of your preference. You can also have experts customize it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent maintenance care by a pro. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs created by pouring concrete over the ground. We follow a particular procedure for making concrete at the site, which allows us to guarantee significant results. Pouring concrete gives us the liberty to make last minute changes to the layout of the surface. Additionally, we can alter the dimensions of the work on the spot if required. Due to its characteristics, it's a good choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a drawback to this, it's time and cost. As we pour a concrete slab at the site and require additional tools and equipment like mixing concrete and a bull float. We will also need many more workers to perform the work. Thus, the installation cost is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are also difficult to work with. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it lasts up to 21 days. We do not leave with wet concrete. We allow the slabs ' to cure, so we can perform a quality check before turning over the project. If you're not ready to endure that much time, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this kind of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed in a plant and shipped directly on to construction sites. While you are able to customize the size to the slab, making adjustments and last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Like the slabs you pour directly in the slab, precast costs less money and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs made with the color, design, or design you like. We are also able to create a custom pattern for your slabs according to the design you like. This service is only available on the basis of our concrete slab poured services. If not, it's impossible to achieve the look or look you're after.
