What is Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an important structural element that is made of cast concrete. It's a flat horizontal concrete surface , which is often employed as a floor or roofing. In order to guarantee durability and years of service, contractors include an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Meanwhile, it is essential for an expert to calculate and supply accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will affect the quality of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the structure. For instance, in residential floor construction, 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness on buildings with heavy loads frequently.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. For a long time, contractors used it to build various building structures. It is a popular choice for foundations as well as other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete has a lot of advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's probably not a more durable construction material that concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it will ensure that concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that there aren't any voids or porous areas within this concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracking and other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its large thermal mass it can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase indoor temperatures through taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, such as its resistance to various elements. Of these is its lack of organic matter. It therefore does not change its shape due to rotting and burning caused by extreme heat. In addition, it has a relatively high compressive strength, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical staining and spills.
Another characteristic that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile that it's easy to make lots of it. By employing different methods and application one can build a concrete slab in the texture, color, and pattern you like. You can even have experts create it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is very simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust using a few basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
These are slabs made by pouring the concrete on the ground. The process we follow is placing concrete on the spot in order to deliver impressive results. Pouring concrete gives us the possibility of making last-minute modifications to the look of the surface. It also permits us to adjust the size of the project in the field if needed. Because of its capabilities, it's the perfect option for custom concrete construction projects.
If there is a downside to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab to the location there is a need for more instruments and equipment, for instance, the concrete mixer and bull floating. We'll also need extra workers to complete the job. Also, the installation price is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are long-lasting. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own can take up to 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We wait for the slabs to cure so we can do checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the work. If you're unable to be patient, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this slab type is precast. These slabs are constructed in a factory before being delivered directly for the build site. Even though you can modify the size and shape of your slabs, making changes or late-night changes on site isn't feasible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are made with the color, pattern or texture you want. You can also design a design for your slabs, depending on the style you prefer. The application is only available on the basis of the concrete slab services we offer. Otherwise, it will be challenging to achieve the design or style you want.
