What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed from cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth, vertical concrete surface typically employed as a floor or for a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of efficiency, contractors will add steel mesh wire or steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
In addition, it is crucial that you have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. A proper thickness will impact the integrity of the slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the building. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for buildings that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely well-known construction material. For years, contractors have utilized it to construct various construction structures. It's a typical choice for foundations as well as other development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete has the advantage of being durable. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There is no more durable construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can ensure that concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the longevity and durability of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have any gaps or porous areas in the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the risk of cracks and other injuries.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass. This is due to its ability to control the flow energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it can regulate indoor comfort and reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful when you live in extreme temperatures. and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. Of these is its lack of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to become degraded due to rotting or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Additionally, it has an impressive compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete well-known is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile you can create a variety of it. Using different methods and applications and techniques, you can design a concrete slab that is the color, texture, and design that you prefer. The experts can custom design it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It does not need regular cleaning by a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust using a few basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as slabs formed by pouring cement on the ground. We follow a procedure for placing concrete on the ground in order to deliver impressive results. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments in the design of our surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size that the project is needed. Due to its advantages, it makes a perfect choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's an issue to this plan, it's time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab on the spot it is necessary to have more devices and tools, including a concrete mixer and bull floating. We will also need more workers for the job. Thus, the expense of installing is much more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are time-consuming. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own is a process that can take up to 21 working days. We do not leave with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs to cure so we can do an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. Unless you are willing to wait that long, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs are precast. The slabs are produced in a manufacturing facility and then delivered straight for the build site. Although you have the option of modifying the dimensions of the slabbut making adjustments or necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. Different from the ones that are poured directly, precast costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs constructed with the color, pattern, or texture you want. We can also create a layout for your slabs based on your preference. This service is only available in the event that you opt for our concrete slab poured services. If not, it's very difficult to design or style you want.
