What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a common structural component made of cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth, vertical concrete surface typically employed as a floor or as a roof. To ensure long-term durability and years of service, contractors include an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
However, it is vital to employ an expert calculator to provide accurate measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will influence the strength of the slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness varies depending upon the specific project. For instance, in the case of residential flooring 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for construction that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. For years, contractors have used it to build various building structures. It's a typical choice for foundations and other construction projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete is extremely beneficial. Its advantages are:
Durability and longevity
There may not be a more durable construction material that concrete. Proper care and upkeep will allow concrete structures to last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that we do not have no voids or porous zones in the concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it has the ability to control indoor comfort and decrease or boost indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are beneficial when you live in extreme temperatures. and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, among them its resistance different elements. This includes its absence of organic material. Therefore, it cannot decay due to rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. Additionally, it has very high compressive strengths that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another feature that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that it's easy to make lots of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques you can make a concrete slab with the texture, color, as well as the pattern you prefer. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is simple to maintain. It doesn't require routine upkeep by a professional. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust with basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are made by pouring concrete on the site. There is a method we use for placing concrete on the spot, ensuring we deliver significant results. Concrete pouring gives us the liberty to make last minute changes to the layout of the surface. Also, it allows us to modify the size of the project in the field if needed. Due to its advantages, it's an ideal choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's a negative to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll pour a concrete slab on the spot it is necessary to have more devices and tools, including the concrete mixer and bull floating. Additionally, we'll require more people to do the work. Therefore, the cost of installation is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be very time-consuming. Curing concrete slabs by itself can take up to 21 days. We don't leave with wet concrete. We let the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can conduct an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the work. If you're unable to sit for that long then this is the one for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs are precast. The slabs are manufactured in a factory before being delivered straight at the place of work. Although you can personalize the dimensions in the slab, making adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly in the slab, precast costs less money and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are which are crafted with the color pattern or texture of your preference. We are also able to create a custom style for your slabs depending on your preference. This service is available only If you opt for our poured concrete slab services.
