What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab is an extremely popular structural component made from cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth, horizontal concrete surface , which is often used for flooring or as a roof. For long-lasting and durable of performance, contractors can add steel mesh wire or steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Meanwhile, it is essential to hire an expert calculation and supply accurate measurements. The correct thickness will influence the strength of the slab as well as the whole structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based upon the specific project. For example, in residential floor construction, four inches is the usual thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for construction with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is a very popular construction material. Over the years, builders have employed it for the construction of various construction structures. It is a popular choice for foundations as well as other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has a lot of advantages. Its benefits include:
Durability and Longevity
There is no more durable construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can help concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that we do not have any voids or porous areas in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the risk that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have large thermal mass can be beneficial in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. Therefore, it does not degrade because of rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. It also has a relatively high compressive strength that means that it won't break when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another feature that makes concrete so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. It is so adaptable that it's possible to make a lot of it. Using different methods and applications for creating an concrete slab that has the texture, color and design of your choice. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance by a professional. You can get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the spot. We use a specific procedure for placing concrete on the ground which guarantees us to provide significant outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us ability to make last-minute changes regarding the design of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the work on the spot if it is required. With its features, it is a great choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a negative to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab onto the site, we need more machinery and tools like an concrete mixer as well as a bull float. Additionally, we'll require more workers to complete the job. Thus, the installation cost is much more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are time-consuming. To cure concrete slabs alone could take up to 21 calendar days. We do not leave you with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs ' to cure, so we can conduct a quality check before turning over the project. Unless you are willing to put off waiting that long, then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs can be made in a manufacturing facility and then delivered directly to the construction site. Even though you can modify the size of the slab, making adjustments or necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. Different from the ones that are poured directly, precast costs less and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are built with the color pattern, or design you like. We can also customize a pattern to your slabs according to your preferences. This feature is only available on the basis of our concrete slabs that are poured. If not, it's very difficult to design or design you'd like.
