What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a popular structural element made of cast concrete. They are flat, horizontal concrete surface , which is often employed as a floor, or as a roof. To ensure long-lasting durability and years of performance, contractors can add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Additionally, it is important for an expert to calculate and give accurate measurements. The right thickness can influence the structural integrity of the slab as well as the structure. The slab's size varies depending upon the specific project. For example, in residential floor construction 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for construction that have heavy load loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most sought-after construction materials. For years, contractors have used it to construct various building structures. It is a popular choice to build foundations and other projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete is extremely beneficial. Its advantages include:
Longevity and durability
There's probably no more sturdy construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can ensure that concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't the appearance of voids or porous regions within the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. This refers to its ability to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it can control indoor comfort and decrease or boost indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials with the highest thermal mass will be useful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. In addition, it lacks of organic matter. Thus, it will not degrade because of rotting or burning caused by extreme heat. In addition, it has quite a strong compressive force, which means that it won't break when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another factor that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and it's easy to make lots of it. By using a variety methods and tools it is possible to create concrete slabs that have the texture, color, as well as the pattern you prefer. You can also have experts customize it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance services by a professional. You can effortlessly get rid of dirt, stains and dust using the most basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs made by pouring concrete on site. We use a specific procedure for creating concrete on the location which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. Pouring concrete provides us with the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks on the design and layout of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if needed. Given its qualities, it's the perfect option for custom concrete construction projects.
If there is a downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab on the ground and require additional devices and tools, including the concrete mixer and bull float. Also, we will require more workers to complete the job. Therefore, the cost for installation is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are also very time-consuming. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own takes up to 21 days. We do not leave with wet concrete. We let the slabs to set so we can perform checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the project. If you're willing to wait for that long then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this kind of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed by a manufacturer and then transported directly to the construction site. However, you can tailor the size of the slab, making adjustments or quick changes on-site is impossible. Unlike the ones poured directly that are precast, it costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs designed with the color design, or texture of your choice. We can also customize a style for your slabs according to your personal preferences. This feature is only accessible if you choose our slabs made of concrete. If not, it's difficult to create the design or style you desire.
