What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a well-known structural element constructed of cast concrete. It is a flat horizontal concrete surface commonly used for flooring or roofing. To ensure long-term durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate an welded wire mesh or steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
In addition, it is crucial that you have an expert calculate and provide the right measurements. A proper thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab as well as the structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the particular project. For example, in residential flooring, 4 inches is the typical thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for structures that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is an extremely well-known construction material. For decades, contractors have used it to create various construction structures. It is a common choice for foundations and other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has the advantage of being durable. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and Longevity
There's probably no more robust construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance can ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material within the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the probability of cracking and other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Due to its thermal mass, it can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are helpful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. It is therefore unable to change its shape due to rotting and rusting caused by excessive heat. Additionally, it has an impressive compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. It's also possible to apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces for them to be 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 extremely flexible, it is possible to do a lot of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques one can build an concrete slab that has the color, texture and pattern of your preference. There are experts who can customize it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is extremely simple to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance maintenance from a professional. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is formed by pouring cement on the site. We follow a method for placing concrete on the spot to ensure we get significant outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us possibility of making last-minute modifications to the appearance of the surface. It also lets us alter the dimensions that the project is needed. Based on its strengths, it is a great choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there is a downside to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll pour a concrete slab over the site and require additional equipment and tools, for example, an concrete mixer as well as a bull float. We'll also require more workers for the job. Thus, the expense of installing is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are slow to cure. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it can take as long as 21 days. We do not leave with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs to set so we can perform an inspection before turning over the project. If you're not prepared to wait that long we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this type of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed in a factory before being delivered directly into the building site. While you are able to customize the size to the slab, making adjustments and last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Unlike the ones poured directly in the slab, precast costs less money and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs made with the color, pattern or texture of your preference. We can also customize a pattern to your slabs depending on the style you prefer. This service is only available should you select our slabs made of concrete. If you don't, it's impossible to achieve the look or style you'd like.
