What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to an extremely popular structural component made out of cast concrete. They are flat, horizontal concrete surface utilized as a floor or for a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of performance, contractors use welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
However, it is vital for an expert to calculate and make the correct measurements. A properly measured thickness will alter the strength of slab, as well as the entire structure. The slab's size varies depending on the type of project. For example, for residential floor construction, 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness in buildings with heavy loads frequently.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are an extremely well-known construction material. For a long time, contractors have used it to build various building structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete is an excellent choice. Its advantages are:
Longevity and Durability
There's no more durable construction material than concrete. Proper care and upkeep can ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that we do not have many voids, or porous spaces in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. This is due to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass control indoor comfort and decrease or raise indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are helpful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, including its resistance to many various elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. Therefore, it does not get rotten or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. It also has quite a strong compressive force that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. It's also possible to apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another aspect that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. It is so adaptable that you can do a lot of it. Employing various methods and applications that allow you to make a concrete slab that is the color, texture, and pattern you like. Experts can help you design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent upkeep by a professional. It is easy to get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as slabs made by pouring concrete on the spot. There is a method we use for pouring concrete onto the surface, which allows us to guarantee significant outcomes. Pouring concrete provides us with the freedom to make last-minute changes to the look of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the project on site if necessary. Because of its capabilities, it's the perfect option for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's one downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab on the spot there is a need for more instruments and equipment, for instance, the use of a concrete mixer or a bull float. Additionally, we'll need more workers for the job. Thus, the expense of installing is more expensive. Concrete slabs with poured concrete are laborious. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. It is not our intention to leave you with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs to set so we can do an inspection before turning over the work. Unless you are willing to be patient, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs can be made in a factory before being delivered directly for the build site. Even though you can modify the size of the slab, making adjustments and urgent changes on the job is impossible. Different from the ones that are poured directly, precast costs less and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are that are made using the color, design, or pattern of your choice. We also can customize a style for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This option is only available when you use our concrete slabs poured service. If you don't, it's very difficult to design or style you want.
