What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed of cast concrete. The slab is flat horizontal concrete surface which is typically employed as a floor or roofing. To ensure longevity 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 employ an expert calculator to provide accurate measurements. Having the right thickness will affect the integrity of the slab as well as the overall structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the project. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for structures with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely popular construction material. For years, contractors used it to build various construction structures. Concrete is a well-known choice for foundations as well as other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete is incredibly beneficial. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and longevity
There's not a more durable construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can make concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't no voids or porous zones in the concrete slab. This reduces the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass. This refers to its ability to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass it can manage indoor comfort and lower or boost indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, that include its resistance against many various elements. Among them is its lack of organic material. So, it doesn't change its shape due to rotting and rusting caused by excessive heat. Furthermore, it is a high compressive strength that means that it won't break when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another quality that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. The material is so flexible you can create a variety of it. Making use of different techniques and methods the possibility of creating a concrete slab that is the texture, color and pattern you like. The experts can custom design it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is extremely simple to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance or care from a professional. It is easy to get rid of dirt, stains and dust with basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is that are made by pouring concrete directly on the site. We follow a set of steps for pouring concrete onto the surface to ensure we get significant results. Concrete is poured gives us the flexibility to make changes to the appearance of the surface. Additionally, we can modify the size of the job on site if it is required. Given its qualities, it's the perfect option for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's an issue to this plan, it's the time and expense. Because we are pouring a concrete slab on the ground We will require more equipment and tools, such as one concrete mixer, and a bull float. We'll also need more people to do the work. This means that the installation cost is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be costly to install. To cure concrete slabs alone could take up to 21 calendar days. We don't leave with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs ' to cure, so we can conduct an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the work. Unless you are willing to wait that long, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this kind of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed by a manufacturer and then transported directly for the build site. Although you have the option of modifying the size in the slab, making adjustments and urgent changes on the job is impossible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs designed with the color pattern or texture of your choice. You can also design a layout for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This feature is only available If you opt for the concrete slab services we offer. In other cases, it could be challenging to achieve the design or look you're looking for.
