What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed of cast concrete. They are flat, horizontal concrete surface used as a floor and a roof. To ensure durability and years of performance, contractors add reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
While it's also important to employ an expert calculator and provide proper measurements. The correct thickness will alter the strength of slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the particular project. For example, for residential flooring 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for structures with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular construction material. For years, contractors have used it to create various building structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other construction projects. Different from other construction materials concrete has many advantages. Its benefits include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's not a more durable construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk of cracks and other injuries.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it's able to maintain indoor comfort and lessen or boost indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, in particular its resistance to various elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. Therefore, it cannot decline due to rotting, or corrosion caused by high temperatures. In addition, it has an extremely high compressive strength, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another aspect that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and you can create a variety of it. Using different methods and applications, you can create concrete slabs in the texture, color, and design that you prefer. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is extremely simple to maintain. It doesn't require frequent cleaning by a professional. You can easily rid yourself of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs that are made by pouring concrete directly on site. We follow a particular procedure for setting up concrete on site, which allows us to guarantee significant results. Concrete pouring gives us the possibility of making last-minute modifications to the appearance of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project on site if required. Because of its capabilities, it's a fantastic choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a negative to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab over the site and require additional tools and equipment, like mixing concrete and a bull floating. We'll also need an additional workforce to do the work. Therefore, the cost of installation is higher. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are costly to install. To cure concrete slabs alone takes between 21 and 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with concrete that is still wet. We let the slabs to dry so that we can conduct an inspection of the quality before handing over the work. If you're unwilling to wait that long, then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs will be manufactured at a factory and are then shipped straight at the place of work. Even though you can modify the dimensions for the slab, making any adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured they are less costly and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are designed with the color design, or style you would like. We can also create a design for your slabs, according to your personal preferences. This service is only available If you opt for our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it's difficult to create the design or style that you prefer.
