What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to the most popular structural element made out of cast concrete. It is a flat, horizontal concrete surface employed as a floor, or roofing. To ensure the durability and longevity of efficiency, contractors will add reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary to get an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. A proper thickness will impact the integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's size varies depending on the structure. For example, for residential floor construction four inches is the usual thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for buildings with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely well-known construction material. For a long time, contractors have employed it to construct a variety of construction structures. It is a common choice for foundations , as well as other development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete is extremely beneficial. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's no more robust construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care will ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the life and strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that there aren't any voids or areas of porous material in the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the risk of cracking and other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, concrete can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages like its resistance different elements. This includes its absence of organic matter. It is therefore unable to become degraded due to rotting or burning caused by extreme heat. It also has very high compressive strengths, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another factor that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. It is so adaptable that you can do a great deal of it. Making use of different techniques and methods for creating an concrete slab that has the texture, color, and design of your choice. The experts can custom design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance by a professional. It is easy to get rid of dirt, stains and dust using a few basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are created by pouring concrete on site. We follow a procedure for creating concrete on the location which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. Concrete pouring gives us the ability to make last-minute changes to the look of the surface. Additionally, we can alter the dimensions of the job on site if required. Based on its strengths, it's a fantastic choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's an issue to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab at the site, we need more tools and equipment like the concrete mixer and bull float. We will also need additional workers to finish the work. Therefore, the cost of installation is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are slow to cure. To cure concrete slabs alone takes about 21 days. We will not leave you with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs ' curing time so we can conduct one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you don't want to be patient, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs are created in a factory before being delivered directly for the build site. While you are able to customize the size to the slab, making adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured that are precast, it costs less and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are which are crafted with the color pattern, or texture you want. We also can customize a pattern for your slabs based on your preference. This is only possible when you select our concrete slabs that are poured. In other cases, it could be impossible to achieve the look or style you'd like to achieve.
