What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a well-known structural element constructed out of cast concrete. It is a flat, horizontal concrete slab that is used as a floor and for a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of performance, contractors can add reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Meanwhile, it is essential to hire an expert calculation and provide the right measurements. The correct thickness will impact the strength of the slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the particular project. For instance, in residential flooring, 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness when building which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is one of the most popular construction materials. For a long time, contractors used it to construct various construction structures. It's a typical choice when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete has the advantage of being durable. The advantages of concrete include:
Longevity and Durability
There's no more sturdy construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it can ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that there aren't no voids or porous zones within the slab of concrete. It also reduces the possibility of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass. It refers to its ability to manage the flow of energy. Because of its high thermal mass regulate indoor comfort and reduce or increase indoor temperatures through absorbing natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, among them its resistance different elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic matter. So, it doesn't fall apart due to rotting nor the rusting that is caused by heat. It also has an extremely high compressive strength that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical staining and spills.
Another quality that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. It is so adaptable that it is possible to do a lot of it. By using a variety methods and tools one can build concrete slabs with the texture, color, and pattern of your preference. Experts can help you design it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is extremely easy to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can effortlessly get rid of dirt, stains and dust with basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs created by pouring concrete over site. We follow a method for setting up concrete on site to ensure we get significant results. Pouring concrete provides us with the flexibility to make changes to the design of the surface. It also permits us to modify the size of the project on site if needed. Due to its advantages, it's the ideal option for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a drawback to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab over the site that requires more tools and equipment, like the use of a concrete mixer or a bull floating. We'll also need an additional workforce to do the work. This means that the installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are time-consuming. To cure concrete slab alone takes about 21 days. We don't leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs to set so we can perform an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the work. Unless you are willing to be patient, we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are manufactured at a factory and are then shipped directly for the build site. Though you can alter the size and shape of your slabs, making changes and quick changes on-site is impossible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly they are less costly and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs that are made using the color, pattern, or texture of your choice. Also, we can create a design for your slabs, depending on your preference. The application is only available in the event that you opt for our concrete slab poured services. In other cases, it could be very difficult to design or design you'd like.
