What is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a structural feature that is commonly made of concrete cast. It's a flat horizontal concrete surface , which is often utilized as a floor or as a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of use, contractors may add reinforced steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Meanwhile, it is essential to get an expert calculate and take the proper measurements. Having the right thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab and the whole structure. The slab's size varies depending on the building. For example, in residential flooring four inches is the norm thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness in buildings with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are a popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have utilized it to construct various building structures. It is a common choice for foundations and other development projects. Like other construction materials concrete has so many advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's no more sturdy construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can make concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the longevity and durability of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within this concrete slab. It also reduces the possibility of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to control the flow energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it can regulate indoor comfort and reduce and increase indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials with great thermal mass are beneficial especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, including its resistance to many various elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to decline due to rotting, or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. Additionally, it has a relatively high compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another feature that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile that it's easy to make lots of it. Using different methods and applications it is possible to create a concrete slab in the color, texture, and pattern that you want. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance care by a pro. It is simple to get rid of dirt, stains as well as dust, using standard cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs made by pouring concrete on site. We follow a method for pouring concrete onto the surface, ensuring we deliver significant results. Concrete pouring gives us the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments to the appearance of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the job on site if necessary. Due to its advantages, it's a fantastic choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this, it's the time and expense. Since we'll pour a concrete slab at the site it is necessary to have more tools and equipment like mixing concrete and a bull floating. There will also be a need for more workers to complete the job. So, the price for installation is higher. Concrete slabs with poured concrete are lengthy. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it takes up to 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs ' to cure so we can do an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the work. Unless you are willing to endure that much time, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. The slabs are produced at a factory, and then shipped straight into the building site. You can however customize the dimensions to the slab, making adjustments and necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly it is more affordable and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are that are made using the color, design, or texture of your choice. We also can customize a pattern for your slabs according to the design you like. The application is only available when you use our poured concrete slab services. Otherwise, it's impossible to achieve the look or style you want.
