What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab is a popular structural element made out of cast concrete. It is a flat horizontal concrete surface which is typically used for flooring or as a roof. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors can add reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
While it's also important that you have an expert calculate and supply accurate measurements. The right thickness can influence the structural integrity of the slab as well as the overall structure. The slab's size varies depending on the type of project. For example, for residential floor construction 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness on buildings with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have employed it to build a variety of building structures. It is a preferred choice for foundations and other development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete is an excellent choice. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and longevity
There is no more durable construction material that concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it can ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have no voids or porous zones within the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the probability of cracks and other injuries.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, it's capable of helping improve indoor comfort, and also reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are helpful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. In addition, it lacks of organic matter. It is therefore unable to change its shape due to rotting and the rusting that is caused by heat. In addition, it has the highest compressive strength that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another characteristic that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile it's possible to do lots of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques that allow you to make concrete slabs in the color, texture and design that you prefer. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can quickly get rid of stains, dirt, as well as dust, using standard cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs made by pouring concrete on the site. We follow a method for creating concrete on the location, which allows us to guarantee significant results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the ability to make last-minute changes on the design and layout of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the construction site when necessary. Because of its capabilities, it's a good choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a negative to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on site the site, we require more tools and equipment, like one concrete mixer, and a bull floating. Additionally, we'll require more people to do the work. So, the price for installation is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are time-consuming. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it can take as long as 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with wet concrete. We let the slabs ' curing time so we can conduct checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the project. If you're unable to wait that long, then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this type of slab is precast. The slabs will be manufactured in a factory before being delivered directly on to construction sites. While you are able to customize the dimensions or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments or modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly they are less costly and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs built with the color design, or the texture you prefer. Also, we can create a pattern to your slabs in accordance with your preference. This is only possible should you select our concrete slabs poured service. Otherwise, it will be challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like to achieve.
