What Is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a popular structural element made of concrete cast. It's a flat, horizontal concrete surface which is typically used for floors or for a roof. To ensure durability and years of performance, contractors add reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
However, it is vital to get an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. The correct thickness will impact the integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the project. For example, for residential flooring 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for construction with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. For a long time, contractors used it to build various building structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other construction projects. Like other construction materials concrete is extremely beneficial. Its advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's not a more robust construction material than concrete. With proper care and maintenance, you can ensure that concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't any gaps or porous areas within the slab of concrete. So, we can reduce the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, concrete can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, such as its resistance to various elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic material. So, it doesn't decay due to rotting or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has quite a strong compressive force, which ensures it will not crack when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical staining and spills.
Another attribute that makes cement famous is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile you can create a variety of it. Making use of different techniques and methods one can build an concrete slab that has the texture, color, and pattern you like. You can even have experts create it, too.
Contrary to other building materials, concrete is easy to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance from a professional. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust with the help of basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
These are slabs created by pouring concrete over site. We follow a method for installing concrete on the site in order to deliver impressive outcomes. The process of pouring concrete allows us the possibility of making last-minute modifications to the layout of the surface. Additionally, we can alter the dimensions of the project in the field if needed. Its advantages mean that it makes a perfect choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's one downside to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll pour a concrete slab to the location we will need additional devices and tools, including one concrete mixer, and a bull float. Also, we will require more people to perform the job. Therefore, the cost for installation is more expensive. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are time-consuming. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it takes between 21 and 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs ' to cure, so we can conduct an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the project. If you're willing to wait that long, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs are made at a factory and are then shipped straight at the place of work. Although you can customize the dimensions of the slab, making adjustments and quick changes on-site is impossible. Like the slabs you pour directly, precast costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs constructed with the color, design, or the texture you prefer. You can also design a design for your slabs, according to your personal preferences. This application is available only with the concrete slab services we offer. If you don't, it's difficult to create the design or style you'd like to achieve.
