What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a structural feature that is commonly made out of cast concrete. It's an even horizontal concrete surface which is typically used for floors or for a roof. To ensure the durability and longevity of performance, contractors use reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
While it's also important for an expert to calculate and take the proper measurements. The right thickness can influence the structural integrity of the slab, as well as the entire structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the construction. For instance, in residential floor construction 4 inches is the typical thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for buildings that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is a well-known construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have constructed a variety of construction structures. Concrete is a well-known choice for foundations as well as other development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's probably not a more robust construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care makes concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the life and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that we do not have no voids or porous zones within the concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks and other injuries.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce and increase indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, such as its resistance to different elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic material. Therefore, it does not decay due to rotting or corrosion caused by high temperatures. It also has an impressive compressive strength, which implies it will not break when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical staining and spills.
Another quality that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. It is so adaptable that it's easy to make lots of it. By employing different methods and application and techniques, you can design a concrete slab that is the color, texture and pattern that you want. The experts can custom design it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent maintenance from a professional. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust by using simple cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs formed by pouring cement on the site. We use a specific procedure for placing concrete on the spot, ensuring we deliver significant outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us opportunity to make last-minute adjustments in the design of the surface. Additionally, we can modify the size of the project onsite if required. Based on its strengths, it makes a perfect choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's a drawback to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab on the ground and require additional tools and equipment, like an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull floating. We'll also need more workers for the job. Also, the installation price is more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are lengthy. For the concrete slab to cure, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. We do not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We wait for the slabs to dry so that we can conduct an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the work. If you're willing to wait that long, then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs can be made at a factory, and then shipped directly into the building site. Even though you can modify the dimensions or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. Instead of being poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs created with the color pattern or pattern of your choice. Also, we can create a style for your slabs according to the design you like. This feature is only available If you opt for our concrete slab service. In the absence of this, it can be impossible to achieve the look or style you'd like to achieve.
