What Is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a structural feature that is commonly made of concrete cast. They are flat horizontal concrete slab that is used as a floor and as a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of performance, contractors can add an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
While it's also important for an expert to calculate and provide the right measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will affect the quality of the slab as well as the overall structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the type of project. For example, in residential flooring, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build carrying heavy loads often.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely sought-after construction material. For a long time, contractors used it to create various construction structures. It is a popular choice to construct foundations and various development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete is so advantageous. Its advantages are:
Durability and Longevity
There's probably not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. With proper care and maintenance, you will allow concrete structures to last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the life and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that there aren't any voids or areas of porous material within this concrete slab. It also reduces the possibility of cracks and other injuries.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass. It refers to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass, it has the ability to regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase indoor temperatures through taking in natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass work to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic matter. Therefore, it cannot degrade because of rotting or rusting caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has a relatively high compressive strength that means that it won't break when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another quality that makes concrete so popular is its ability to be used in a variety of ways. The material is so flexible you can do a great deal of it. Using different methods and applications and techniques, you can design an concrete slab that has the texture, color, and design of your choice. You can even have experts create it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It does not require regular cleaning by a professional. You can get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs created by pouring a concrete slab on the site. We use a specific procedure for placing concrete on the spot to ensure we get significant results. Concrete installation gives us freedom to make last-minute changes to the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to modify the size of the project in the field if needed. Thanks to its attributes, it's the ideal option for custom concrete projects.
If there's a drawback to this, it would be time and cost. As we pour a concrete slab at the site that requires more devices and tools, including an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull float. Additionally, we'll require more people to do the work. Thus, the installation cost is higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are laborious. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it takes up to 21 days. We do not leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs to set so we can conduct checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the work. If you're not ready to wait that long, then this is the one for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this type of slab is precast. The slabs are manufactured in a manufacturing facility and then delivered straight towards the location of the project. However, you can tailor the size or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments and final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. Like the slabs you pour directly the precast slab is less expensive and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
The decorative concrete slabs are designed with the color pattern or the texture you prefer. We can also customize a pattern to your slabs in accordance with your preference. This feature is only available when you use our concrete slab services. Otherwise, it will be impossible to achieve the look or look you're after.
