What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed from cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete surface employed as a floor or as a roof. To ensure the durability and longevity in performance, contractors incorporate the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Also, it's important to get an expert calculate and make the correct measurements. A properly measured thickness will impact the integrity of the slab and the entire structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the particular project. For example, for residential flooring 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for structures that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are a popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have constructed a variety of building structures. It is a common choice for foundations and other construction projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete is incredibly beneficial. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and Longevity
There may not be a more durable construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care could make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted in a way that we do not have gaps or pores within the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the probability of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass, which refers to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are helpful to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages among them its resistance different elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. This means it won't fall apart due to rotting nor burning caused by extreme heat. In addition, it has significant compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. You can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another reason concrete is so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. Concrete is so flexible that you can do a lot of it. With a variety of techniques and applications it is possible to create a concrete slab in the texture, color and design of your choice. You can even have experts create it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance from a professional. It is easy to get rid of dirt, stains and dust with basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are formed by pouring cement on the ground. The process we follow is placing concrete on the ground, which allows us to guarantee significant outcomes. Pouring concrete provides us with the freedom to make last-minute changes in the design of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions that the project is required. Because of its capabilities, it's a fantastic choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab on the site it is necessary to have more tools and equipment, such as cement mixers and a bull floating. Additionally, we'll need an additional workforce to do the job. The installation cost is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are also difficult to work with. To cure concrete slab alone could take up to 21 calendar days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs to dry so that we can perform a quality check before 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 the slabs are precast. These slabs are constructed in a manufacturing facility and then delivered directly for the build site. You can however customize the size in the slab, making adjustments or final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are made with the color, design or style you would like. You can also design a design for your slabs based on your preference. This option is only available if you choose our concrete slab services. Otherwise, it's difficult to create the design or style you desire.
