What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to the most popular structural element made from cast concrete. It's a flat, horizontal concrete slab, commonly used as a flooring or as a roof. For durability and to ensure years of operation, contractors install reinforcement steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
In addition, it is crucial to hire an expert calculation and provide proper measurements. A proper thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the structure. For example, for residential floor construction four inches is the norm thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for structures that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely popular construction material. For a long time, contractors used it to construct various building structures. It is an extremely popular option when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete has a lot of advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's no more durable construction material that concrete. The proper care and maintenance can allow concrete structures to last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted in a way that we do not have any voids or porous areas in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk of cracks or other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or raise indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are helpful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, like its resistance different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic matter. Therefore, it cannot become degraded due to rotting or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Furthermore, it has an extremely high compressive strength, which signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. It's also possible to apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another feature that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so flexible that it's easy to make lots of it. By employing different methods and application you can make an concrete slab that has the color, texture and pattern of your preference. Experts can design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance care by a pro. You can effortlessly get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are made by pouring concrete on the site. The process we follow is placing concrete on the ground, which allows us to guarantee significant outcomes. The process of pouring concrete allows us the ability to make last-minute changes regarding the design of the surface. It also permits us to adjust the size of the construction site when needed. Based on its strengths, it makes a perfect choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's any downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab over the site it is necessary to have more tools and equipment like the use of a concrete mixer or a bull floating. Additionally, we'll require more people to perform the work. The installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are difficult to work with. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it takes up to 21 days. The slabs are not left with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs to set so we can perform an assessment of quality prior to turning over the work. If you're unable to wait that long then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this slab type is precast. The slabs can be made at a factory and are then shipped straight towards the location of the project. However, you can tailor the size of the slab, making adjustments or modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. The slabs are not poured directly, precast costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs created with the color pattern or design you like. We can also create a style for your slabs depending on your preference. The application is only available in the event that you opt for our concrete slabs poured service. In the absence of this, it can be impossible to achieve the look or look you're after.
