What is a concrete slab?
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component made of concrete cast. It's flat horizontal concrete surface that is commonly employed as a floor or a roof. To ensure durability and years of performance, contractors can add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary for an expert to calculate and supply accurate measurements. The right thickness can have an impact on the integrity of your slab and the whole structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based on the type of project. For example, for residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for buildings which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely popular construction material. For years, contractors have employed it to construct a variety of construction structures. It's a typical choice to build foundations and other projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete is an excellent choice. Its advantages are:
Durability and longevity
There's probably not a more durable construction material that concrete. Care and maintenance can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the risk of cracking or other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow of heat energy. Due to its thermal mass, it has the ability to regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by taking in natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are beneficial in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, such as its resistance to different elements. One of them is the absence of organic material. Therefore, it is unable to become degraded due to rotting or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. It also has very high compressive strengths that means it will not break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement popular is its versatility. Concrete is so flexible that it is possible to do a lot of it. By employing different methods and application one can build a concrete slab with the color, texture and pattern of your preference. There are experts who can customize it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is easy to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance services by a professional. You can easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust with the help of basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the site. We follow a set of steps for placing concrete on the spot which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us opportunity to make last-minute adjustments on the design and layout of the surface. It also allows us to adjust the size of the work on the spot if needed. Due to its advantages, it's an excellent choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's one downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab at the site and require additional instruments and equipment, for instance, the concrete mixer and bull floating. We'll also require more people to perform the work. Thus, the installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are long-lasting. To cure concrete slabs alone takes about 21 days. We don't leave you with concrete that is still wet. We let 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, then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs are precast. The slabs are manufactured in a manufacturing facility and then delivered directly into the building site. However, you can tailor the size in the slab, making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. Unlike the ones poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs of concrete that have the color, pattern, or style you would like. Also, we can create a style for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This service is only available on the basis of our concrete slab poured services. Otherwise, it's challenging to achieve the design or look you're looking for.
