What is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a common structural component made of cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete surface that is commonly used 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 the concrete slab they have reinforced.
While it's also important that you have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. A proper thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab, as well as the entire structure. The slab's size varies depending on the particular project. For instance, in the case of residential flooring, 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness when building that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most sought-after construction materials. Over the years, builders have employed it for the construction of various building structures. It is a common choice in foundations and for other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete has a lot of advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's no more robust construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it could make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that we do not have any pores or voids within the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass it can manage indoor comfort and lower or raise indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are beneficial to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, that include its resistance against many different elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic matter. Thus, it will not suffer from rotting or rusting caused by excessive heat. It also has quite a strong compressive force that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. You can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. The material is so flexible you can create a variety of it. Using different methods and applications it is possible to create a concrete slab with the color, texture and pattern of your preference. There are experts who can customize it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent maintenance by a professional. You are able to easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs slabs formed by pouring cement on the site. We use a specific procedure for installing concrete on the site in order to deliver impressive outcomes. Pouring concrete provides us with the flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments in the design of the surface. It also allows us to modify the size of the project onsite if it is required. Given its qualities, it's the perfect option for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a negative to this plan, it's time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab on the ground We will require more tools and equipment, like the concrete mixer and bull float. We'll also require extra workers to complete the job. Therefore, the cost of installation is much higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are slow to cure. A concrete slab that is cured on its own could take up to 21 calendar days. It is not our intention to leave you with wet concrete. We allow the slabs to dry so that we can conduct checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the work. If you don't want to wait that long then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are created in a facility before being shipped straight into the building site. Though you can alter the dimensions that the slab is made, making modifications and late-night changes on site isn't feasible. Different from the ones that are poured directly, precast costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs of concrete that have the color, design, or design you like. We are also able to create a custom layout for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This feature is only accessible when you use our concrete slab service. In the absence of this, it can be difficult to create the style or style you want.
