What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a popular structural element made out of cast concrete. It is a flat horizontal concrete surface employed as a floor, or as a roof. To ensure longevity and years of operation, contractors install reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
While it's also important to get an expert calculate and make the correct measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will influence the strength of the slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the structure. For example, in residential flooring, 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness in buildings which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular construction material. Over the years, builders have utilized it to construct various construction structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other construction projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has a lot of advantages. Its advantages are:
Durability and long-term durability
There's probably not a more durable construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it will ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that there aren't any pores or voids within this concrete slab. It also reduces the possibility of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass it can adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by taking in natural heat. Materials with the highest thermal mass will be useful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, among them its resistance various elements. This includes its absence of organic matter. This means it won't fall apart due to rotting nor rusting caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has a relatively high compressive strength that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another aspect that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and you can do a great deal of it. By using a variety methods and tools one can build a concrete slab that is the color, texture, or pattern you would like. The experts can custom design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance by a professional. You can quickly get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is slabs formed by pouring cement on the ground. We follow a procedure for placing concrete on the spot, ensuring we deliver significant results. Concrete pouring gives us the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the layout of the surface. It also lets us adjust the size of the job on site if necessary. Thanks to its attributes, it is a great choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's an issue to this plan, it's time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab on site and require additional tools and equipment, such as an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull floating. We will also need more workers for the work. Therefore, the cost of installation is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are difficult to work with. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it takes up to 21 days. We don't leave with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs to cure so we can perform one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you're not willing to sit for that long we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this type of slab is precast. The slabs will be manufactured by a manufacturer and then transported directly onto the site of construction. However, you can tailor the dimensions and shape of your slabs, making changes and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured, precast costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are built with the color pattern or texture of your choice. Also, we can create a pattern to your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This application is available only when you select our concrete slabs poured service. Otherwise, it's difficult to create the style or style that you prefer.
