What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a popular structural element made out of cast concrete. They are flat horizontal concrete surface that is commonly used as a flooring or a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
While it's also important for an expert to calculate and supply accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will influence the structural integrity of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the design. For instance, in the case of residential flooring, 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness in buildings with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is one of the most sought-after construction materials. For a long time, contractors used it to construct various building structures. It is a common choice to construct foundations and various development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Its advantages are:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably no more durable construction material that concrete. A proper maintenance and care will ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that we do not have any voids or porous areas within this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances of cracks and other injuries.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass it can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have large thermal mass can be beneficial for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages that include its resistance against many different elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. Thus, it will not fall apart due to rotting nor corrosion caused by high temperatures. Furthermore, it is an extremely high compressive strength that implies it will not break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical staining and spills.
Another attribute that makes cement the most sought-after is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and you can do a great deal of it. By employing different methods and application the possibility of creating concrete slabs that have the texture, color and design you prefer. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance or care from a professional. It is simple to get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as created by pouring concrete over the site. We follow a method for setting up concrete on site, which allows us to guarantee significant results. Concrete pouring gives us the liberty to make last minute changes to the design of the surface. Additionally, we can adjust the size of the job on site if it is required. Because of its capabilities, it's an ideal choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's one downside to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll pour a concrete slab at the site we will need additional devices and tools, including one concrete mixer, and a bull floating. Also, we will require more workers for the job. This means that the installation cost is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are difficult to work with. A concrete slab that is cured on its own takes up to 21 days. We don't leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs to set so we can perform one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you're willing the time to wait, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this type of slab is precast. The slabs are created in a plant and shipped directly on to construction sites. However, you can tailor the size of the slabbut making adjustments and quick changes on-site is impossible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly that are precast, it costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are constructed with the color, design or design you like. We also can customize a design for your slabs, according to your preferences. This feature is only available should you select our poured concrete slab services. If not, it's very difficult to design or style that you prefer.
