What is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an important structural element that is made of concrete cast. It's a flat, horizontal concrete surface commonly used as a floor or as a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of service, contractors include the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Furthermore, it is necessary to have an expert calculate and supply accurate measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will affect the quality of the slab and the whole structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based upon the specific project. For example, for residential flooring four inches is the norm thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are a well-known construction material. For years, contractors have used it to create various building structures. Concrete is a well-known choice for foundations and other construction projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete is so advantageous. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's no more durable construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care makes concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that we do not have many voids, or porous spaces in the slab of concrete. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This refers to its ability to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass, it can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase the temperature inside by taking in natural heat. Materials with the highest thermal mass will be useful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages such as its resistance to different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. It therefore does not get rotten or rusting caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has very high compressive strengths that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another quality that makes concrete well-known is its flexibility. It is so adaptable that you can create a variety of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques you can make concrete slabs with the color, texture and design of your choice. You can also have experts customize it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as slabs that are made by pouring concrete directly on the spot. We follow a set of steps for making concrete at the site which ensures that we can deliver substantial results. Pouring concrete gives us the freedom to make last-minute changes to the look of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the job on site if needed. Because of its capabilities, it's a fantastic choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there is a downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab over the site it is necessary to have more equipment and tools, such as cement mixers and a bull float. There will also be a need for more workers for the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is more expensive. Concrete slabs that have been poured are costly to install. A concrete slab that is cured on its own lasts up to 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We wait for the slabs ' to cure so we can perform an inspection of the quality before handing over the work. Unless you are willing to sit for that long then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that the slabs are precast. The slabs are created in a facility before being shipped directly into the building site. You can however customize the size for the slab, making any adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. The slabs are not poured directly it is more affordable and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are that are made using the color, pattern or design you like. We also can customize a design for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This application is available only in the event that you opt for the concrete slab services we offer. Otherwise, it will be difficult to attain the design or style you'd like to achieve.
