What is a concrete slab?
Concrete slabs are an important structural element that is made of cast concrete. It's flat vertical concrete surface typically used for flooring or for a roof. For durability and to ensure years of use, contractors may add an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Meanwhile, it is essential to employ an expert calculator and supply accurate measurements. The right thickness can alter the strength of slab, as well as the entire structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the construction. For instance, in the case of residential flooring 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for structures that carry heavy loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is a well-known construction material. For a long time, contractors constructed a variety of construction structures. It's a typical choice when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete has a lot of advantages. Its advantages are:
Durability and long-term durability
There may not be a more robust construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can help concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that we do not have any gaps or porous areas in the slab of concrete. It also reduces the possibility of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. This is due to its ability to control the flow energy. Because of its thermal mass, it's capable of helping regulate indoor comfort and reduce or raise indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, like its resistance different elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to suffer from rotting or rusting caused by excessive heat. Furthermore, it is an extremely high compressive strength, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another reason concrete is very popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile you can do a lot of it. Using different methods and applications for creating a concrete slab in the color, texture, and pattern that you want. There are experts who can customize it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance by a professional. You can easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are created by pouring concrete on site. We follow a set of steps for installing concrete on site to ensure we get significant outcomes. The process of pouring concrete allows us the possibility of making last-minute modifications regarding the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if required. Thanks to its attributes, it's an ideal choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's one downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab onto the site that requires more equipment and tools, such as mixing concrete and a bull float. We will also need many more workers to perform the work. Thus, the installation cost is much more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are slow to cure. To cure concrete slabs alone takes about 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs ' curing time so we can do an inspection of the quality before handing over the work. Unless you are willing to put off waiting that long, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this slab type is precast. The slabs are manufactured in a facility before being shipped straight towards the location of the project. You can however customize the dimensions for the slab, making any adjustments and quick changes on-site is impossible. Instead of being poured directly Precast is cheaper and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are made with the color, pattern or texture of your preference. Also, we can create a layout for your slabs according to your preferences. This is only possible in the event that you opt for our concrete slab service. In other cases, it could be difficult to create the design or style you desire.
