What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to a common structural component made of cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth, horizontal concrete slab that is employed as a floor, or for a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of performance, contractors can add the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary to hire an expert calculation and provide proper measurements. A properly measured thickness will influence the strength of the slab and the entire structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based upon the specific project. For instance, in residential floor construction 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness in buildings with heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most sought-after construction materials. For a long time, contractors constructed a variety of construction structures. It is a preferred choice in foundations and for other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is incredibly beneficial. Its benefits include:
Durability and longevity
There's probably not a more robust construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance makes concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted in a way that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the probability of cracking or other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, it has the ability to improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by taking in natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. In addition, it lacks of organic matter. So, it doesn't suffer from rotting or corrosion due to heat. In addition, it has the highest compressive strength that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another feature that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that it's possible to do lots of it. By using a variety methods and tools for creating concrete slabs with the texture, color, and design of your choice. There are experts who can customize it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is extremely simple to maintain. It does not need regular upkeep by a professional. It is easy to get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the site. We follow a particular procedure for placing concrete on the spot so that we can guarantee substantial outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments on the design and layout of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if required. Its advantages mean that it's an ideal choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's a drawback to this, it's the time and expense. Because we will pour a concrete slab on the spot we will need additional equipment and tools, for example, one concrete mixer, and a bull float. There will also be a need for an additional workforce to do the job. Thus, the expense of installing is higher. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are lengthy. For the concrete slab to cure, it takes about 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs ' to cure, so we can perform an inspection before turning over the project. If you're not willing to wait for that long then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are made in a manufacturing facility and then delivered directly into the building site. Although you can customize the dimensions of the slabbut making adjustments and last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Instead of being poured directly in the slab, precast costs less money and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are designed with the color pattern or design you like. You can also design a layout for your slabs according to your personal preferences. This feature is only accessible should you select our poured concrete slab services. In the absence of this, it can be challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like to achieve.
