What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is the most popular structural element made out of cast concrete. The slab is flat, horizontal concrete slab that is employed as a floor, or a roof. For long-lasting and durable of service, contractors include welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
However, it is vital for an expert to calculate and take the proper measurements. Having the right thickness will affect the quality of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the type of project. For example, for residential floor construction, 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for structures with heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. For years, contractors have employed it to build a variety of construction structures. It's a typical choice to construct foundations and various development projects. It is different from other construction materials because concrete is so advantageous. The advantages of concrete include:
Longevity and durability
There's probably not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care can ensure that concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have the appearance of voids or porous regions in the slab of concrete. Therefore, it reduces the chance that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass it can improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages that include its resistance against many various elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic matter. It therefore does not suffer from rotting or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. It also has a high compressive strength that implies it will not break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another characteristic 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 great deal of it. Making use of different techniques and methods one can build a concrete slab that is the texture, color, or pattern you would like. Experts can design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is very simple to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance services by a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust using the most basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured slabs created by pouring concrete over the ground. We follow a process for creating concrete on the location which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. Concrete installation gives us ability to make last-minute changes on the design and layout of the surface. It also allows us to alter the dimensions of the project onsite if needed. Thanks to its attributes, it's a good choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's a negative to this, it would be the time and expense. Because we will pour a concrete slab on site there is a need for more tools and equipment, like cement mixers and a bull float. Additionally, we'll require additional workers to finish the work. This means that the installation cost is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are also difficult to work with. To cure concrete slab alone could take up to 21 calendar days. We do not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs ' to cure so we can conduct one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you're not willing to wait that long, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, the slabs are precast. The slabs will be manufactured in a plant and shipped straight onto the site of construction. While you are able to customize the size that the slab is made, making modifications or last-minute changes onsite is impossible. The slabs are not poured directly, precast costs less and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are that are made using the color, pattern or the texture you prefer. You can also design a pattern to your slabs in accordance with your preference. This service is available only when you use our concrete slabs poured service. In the absence of this, it can be impossible to achieve the look or look you're after.
