What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to an important structural element that is made of concrete cast. It's a flat, horizontal concrete slab that is used for flooring or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable of efficiency, contractors will add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
While it's also important for an expert to calculate and present accurate measurements. The correct thickness will affect the quality of the slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness differs based upon the specific project. For example, in residential floor construction, 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches for buildings that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is an extremely well-known construction material. For years, contractors employed it for the construction of various building structures. It is a preferred choice to build foundations and other projects. It is different from other construction materials because concrete has the advantage of being durable. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There is no more durable construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can allow concrete structures to last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the longevity and durability of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that we do not have the appearance of voids or porous regions in the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the probability of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it has the ability to control indoor comfort and decrease or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass work especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, that include its resistance against many various elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. This means it won't fall apart due to rotting nor corrosion due to heat. Furthermore, it has an impressive compressive strength, which means it will not break when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. Concrete is so versatile that it's possible to make a lot of it. By employing different methods and application it is possible to create an concrete slab that has the texture, color and design of your choice. You can also have experts customize it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is extremely simple to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance services by a professional. It is easy to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured slabs created by pouring concrete over the spot. We follow a procedure for placing concrete on the spot which ensures that we can deliver substantial results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the ability to make last-minute changes in the design of the surface. Additionally, we can adjust the size of the job on site if needed. Its advantages mean that it makes a perfect choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's any downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll pour a concrete slab on site it is necessary to have more instruments and equipment, for instance, the concrete mixer and bull floating. We'll also need more people to perform the work. So, the price for installation is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are slow to cure. For the concrete slab to cure, it lasts up to 21 days. We will not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can conduct an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you're willing 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 at a factory, and then shipped directly on to construction sites. Though you can alter the size or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments and urgent changes on the job is impossible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured in the slab, precast costs less money and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs designed with the color design or design of your choice. We can also create a pattern to your slabs based on your preference. This service is available only should you select our slabs made of concrete. Otherwise, it's difficult to create the design or style you desire.
