What Is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an important structural element that is made of cast concrete. The slab is flat horizontal concrete slab, commonly utilized as a floor or roofing. In order to guarantee durability and years of service, contractors include reinforcement steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
It is also essential to get an expert calculate and present accurate measurements. A properly measured thickness will alter the strength of slab as well the entire structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the structure. For example, for residential floor construction, 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness on buildings with heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely well-known construction material. Over the years, builders have used it to build various building structures. It is an extremely popular option in foundations and for other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete has so many advantages. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and Longevity
There's probably no more sturdy construction material than concrete. With proper care and maintenance, you can allow concrete structures to last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend the life and strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces in the slab of concrete. It also reduces the possibility of cracks and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass, which refers to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it has the ability to regulate indoor comfort and reduce or raise indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials that have large thermal mass can be beneficial for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. Of these is its lack of organic material. It is therefore unable to change its shape due to rotting and corrosion due to heat. Additionally, it has quite a strong compressive force, which implies it will not break when squeezed. You can also apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another feature that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. It is so adaptable that it is possible to do a lot of it. By employing different methods and application, you can create a concrete slab in the color, texture, and pattern you like. Experts can design it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is extremely simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance by a professional. You can effortlessly get rid of dirt, stains and dust with basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as slabs created by pouring a concrete slab on the spot. We use a specific procedure for setting up concrete on site to ensure we get significant results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the flexibility to make changes to the layout of the surface. Additionally, we can modify the size of the project onsite if needed. Given its qualities, it's the perfect option for customized concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab on the spot there is a need for more equipment and tools, for example, an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull float. We'll also require more workers to complete the job. This means that the installation cost is higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are very time-consuming. Curing concrete slabs by itself could take up to 21 calendar days. We don't leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs ' to cure so we can do one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you're not prepared to wait that long, this project is for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this type of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed in a factory and delivered straight into the building site. While you are able to customize the size of the slab, making adjustments or final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. Unlike the ones poured directly they are less costly and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs of concrete that have the color, pattern or texture of your choice. We are also able to customize a layout for your slabs according to your preferences. This application is available only in the event that you opt for our concrete slab poured services. If not, it's challenging to achieve the design or design you'd like.
