What is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a common structural component made of concrete cast. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth horizontal concrete surface which is typically used as a floor and for a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
While it's also important for an expert to calculate and make the correct measurements. A properly measured thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well the entire structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the structure. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches for buildings that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have used it to construct various building structures. It is a common choice when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has a lot of advantages. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and longevity
There's not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care makes concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase the life span and strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that we do not have no voids or porous zones within the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to control the flow energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it is able to manage indoor comfort and lower or increase indoor temperatures through absorption of natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. Thus, it will not degrade because of rotting or burning caused by extreme heat. It also has an impressive compressive strength, which is why it doesn't break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another reason concrete is extremely popular is its versatility. The material is so flexible you can create a variety of it. Through a variety or methods you can make concrete slabs in the texture, color and design of your choice. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent maintenance care by a pro. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using common cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto site. There is a method we use for pouring concrete onto the surface and ensuring that we achieve significant results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the freedom to make last-minute changes to the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if necessary. Given its qualities, it's a good choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's a negative to this, it would be time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab over the site there is a need for more tools and equipment, like an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull floating. We'll also need additional workers to finish the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is higher. Poured concrete slabs are also slow to cure. For the concrete slab to cure, it lasts up to 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs ' to cure so we can do some quality checks before turning over the project. If you're unable to wait that long then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are manufactured in a manufacturing facility and then delivered straight into the building site. Although you can customize the dimensions to the slab, making adjustments or final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly that are precast, it costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative designs are built with the color pattern, or pattern of your choice. We are also able to create a custom layout for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This application is available only with the concrete slab services we offer. In other cases, it could be difficult to create the design or style you'd like.
