What is a concrete slab?
Concrete slabs are an important structural element that is made from cast concrete. It's an even, horizontal concrete surface commonly used as a floor and roofing. To ensure long-lasting durability and years of service, contractors include welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Also, it's important for an expert to calculate and provide the right measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will affect the integrity of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the design. For instance, in the case of residential flooring 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness to build that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have constructed a variety of construction structures. It's a typical choice for foundations and other development projects. Like other construction materials concrete is so advantageous. Its benefits include:
Durability and long-term durability
There is no more durable construction material that concrete. Care and maintenance makes concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the life and strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted in a way that we do not have any pores or voids in the concrete slab. So, reducing the likelihood of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, it's capable of helping maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have large thermal mass can be beneficial in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, in particular its resistance to different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic matter. This means it won't degrade because of rotting or corrosion caused by high temperatures. In addition, it has a high compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. It's also possible to apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another reason concrete is popular is its versatility. The material is so flexible it's possible to make a lot of it. Through a variety or methods it is possible to create concrete slabs that have the color, texture, and design that you prefer. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular upkeep by a professional. You can get rid of dirt, stains and dust with basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is slabs formed by pouring cement on site. We follow a particular procedure for making concrete at the site to ensure we get significant results. Pouring concrete provides us with the freedom to make last-minute changes to the design of the surface. It also lets us modify the size of the project at the site, if required. Based on its strengths, it's a good choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's one downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Because we are pouring a concrete slab on the site that requires more instruments and equipment, for instance, an concrete mixer as well as a bull float. Additionally, we'll need additional workers to finish the work. Also, the installation price is higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are long-lasting. Curing concrete slabs by itself takes about 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs ' to cure so we can conduct one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you're not willing to wait that long, this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are made in a facility before being shipped directly over to the job site. Although you can customize the dimensions for the slab, making any adjustments and late-night changes on site isn't feasible. Instead of being poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are that are made using the color, design, or design you like. We are also able to create a custom layout for your slabs based on your preference. This feature is only accessible when you use our concrete slabs poured service. In other cases, it could be difficult to create the style or style you'd like.
