What Is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an essential structural element composed from cast concrete. This is an elongated horizontal concrete slab, commonly used as a floor and roofing. To ensure the durability and longevity of efficiency, contractors will add an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
It is also essential to hire an expert calculation and give accurate measurements. Having the right thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the construction. For example, for residential flooring, 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for buildings with heavy loads frequently.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are a well-known construction material. For many years, contractors have constructed a variety of construction structures. Concrete is a well-known choice for foundations and other construction projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete is extremely beneficial. Its advantages are:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably no more sturdy construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care could make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend the longevity and durability of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the risk of cracks or other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its thermal mass, concrete can maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, which include its resistance to different elements. Of these is its lack of organic matter. Therefore, it cannot degrade because of rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. Furthermore, it has quite a strong compressive force, which implies it will not break when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another reason concrete is extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is extremely flexible, it is possible to do a lot of it. By employing different methods and application that allow you to make a concrete slab that is the texture, color and design that you prefer. There are experts who can customize it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is very simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust using a few basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as created by pouring a concrete slab on the spot. We follow a process for creating concrete on the location which ensures that we can deliver substantial results. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the appearance of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if necessary. Due to its characteristics, it's a good choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's a downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab at the site, we need more machinery and tools like an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull float. There will also be a need for more workers for the work. This means that the installation cost is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be time-consuming. A concrete slab that is cured on its own takes up to 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is still wet. We let the slabs ' to cure so we can conduct a quality check before turning over the work. If you're unable to put off waiting that long, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this slab type is precast. These slabs are constructed in a facility before being shipped directly over to the job site. Although you can customize the size of the slab, making adjustments and final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. Like the slabs you pour directly it is more affordable and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs which are crafted with the color pattern, or the texture you prefer. We are also able to customize a design for your slabs depending on your preference. The application is only available if you choose our slabs made of concrete. In other cases, it could be hard to achieve the look or look you're after.
