What is Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a common structural component made of concrete cast. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete surface utilized as a floor or a roof. For long-lasting and durable of performance, contractors add an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
While it's also important to get an expert calculate and take the proper measurements. A proper thickness will affect the quality of the slab and also the overall structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based upon the specific project. For instance, in residential floor construction, 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness on buildings that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is one of the most sought-after construction materials. For a long time, contractors employed it to build a variety of construction structures. Concrete is a well-known choice to construct foundations and various development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete is so advantageous. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and Longevity
There's probably no more durable construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can allow concrete structures to last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that we do not have the appearance of voids or porous regions in this 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, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce or raise indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages that include its resistance against many various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. It therefore does not degrade because of rotting or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. It also has an impressive compressive strength, which means that it won't break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and it is possible to do a lot of it. Through a variety or methods it is possible to create concrete slabs that have the texture, color, or pattern you would like. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular cleaning by a professional. You can effortlessly get rid of stains, dirt, and dust with basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
These are made by pouring the concrete on site. There is a method we use for placing concrete on the spot which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. When we pour concrete, we have the flexibility to make changes to the look of the surface. It also lets us alter the dimensions of the construction site when it is required. Because of its capabilities, it's an excellent choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's a drawback to this plan, it's the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab onto the site it is necessary to have more equipment and tools, for example, a concrete mixer and bull floating. Also, we will require more people to perform the work. Also, the installation price is higher. Poured concrete slabs are very time-consuming. Curing concrete slabs by itself takes about 21 days. We don't leave with wet concrete. We let the slabs to dry so that we can conduct an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you're not ready to wait for that long then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this type of slab is precast. The slabs will be manufactured at a factory and are then shipped directly on to construction sites. Although you have the option of modifying the dimensions of the slab, making adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. Like the slabs you pour directly it is more affordable and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are designed with the color pattern or design of your choice. You can also design a layout for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This feature is only available when you use our concrete slab service. In the absence of this, it can be impossible to achieve the look or look you're looking for.
