What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component made of cast concrete. It's an even, horizontal concrete slab, commonly used for flooring or as a roof. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors can add steel mesh wire or steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
While it's also important to employ an expert calculator and supply accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will affect the quality of the slab and the entire structure. The slab's size varies depending on the building. For instance, in the case of residential flooring 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for structures with heavy loads frequently.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have employed it for the construction of various construction structures. It is an extremely popular option when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete is incredibly beneficial. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's probably no more durable construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that we do not have any pores or voids within the concrete slab. So, we can reduce the risk that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass. This refers to its ability to manage the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, it's capable of helping manage indoor comfort and lower or raise indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, which include its resistance to different elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. This means it won't decline due to rotting, or corrosion due to heat. In addition, it has significant compressive strength that means that it won't break when squeezed. It's also possible to apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another attribute that makes cement famous is its flexibility. Concrete is very flexible and it's easy to make lots of it. With a variety of techniques and applications, you can create a concrete slab that is the texture, color as well as the pattern you prefer. The experts can custom design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance or care from a professional. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust using the most basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs created by pouring a concrete slab on the spot. We use a specific procedure for placing concrete on the spot so that we can guarantee substantial outcomes. Concrete installation gives us opportunity to make last-minute adjustments regarding the design of the surface. It also lets us modify the size of the construction site when necessary. Its advantages mean that it's the perfect option for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's any downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Because we will pour a concrete slab at the site it is necessary to have more tools and equipment, like an concrete mixer as well as a bull float. We'll also need additional workers to finish the job. Thus, the expense of installing is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are very time-consuming. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it lasts up to 21 days. We do not leave you with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can do an inspection before turning over the work. If you're unwilling to wait that long, then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, the slabs are precast. The slabs are created at a factory and are then shipped straight at the place of work. Although you have the option of modifying the dimensions in the slab, making adjustments or urgent changes on the job is impossible. Unlike the ones poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are constructed with the color, design or pattern of your choice. You can also design a design for your slabs, at the discretion of your taste. This service is available only when you select our slabs made of concrete. In other cases, it could be difficult to attain the design or style you'd like to achieve.
