What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a popular structural element made from cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth horizontal concrete surface , which is often employed as a floor, or a roof. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors use reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Additionally, it is important for an expert to calculate and provide the right measurements. Having the right thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well as the overall structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the building. For example, in residential flooring, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness on buildings that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. Over the years, builders have employed it to build a variety of building structures. Concrete is the most popular choice for foundations , as well as other development projects. It is different from other construction materials because concrete has the advantage of being durable. Its benefits include:
Longevity and Durability
There may not be a more durable construction material than concrete. With proper care and maintenance, you can make concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the life and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the chances of cracks or other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its high thermal mass regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase the temperature inside by absorbing natural heat. Materials with significant thermal mass are ideal for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages in particular its resistance to different elements. Of these is its lack of organic matter. So, it doesn't suffer from rotting or corrosion caused by high temperatures. Additionally, it has the highest compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another reason concrete is the most sought-after is its versatility. The material is so flexible you can make a lot of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques the possibility of creating concrete slabs with the texture, color as well as the pattern you prefer. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance by a professional. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust with basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the site. There is a method we use for installing concrete on site, which allows us to guarantee significant results. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments on the design and layout of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if needed. Thanks to its attributes, it's the ideal option to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's a downside to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab onto the site it is necessary to have more equipment and tools, such as a concrete mixer and bull float. We will also need more people to perform the job. This means that the installation cost is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are time-consuming. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. We do not leave you with wet concrete. We allow the slabs ' to cure, so we can perform some quality checks before turning over the project. If you're not ready to put off waiting that long, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this type of slab is precast. They are manufactured in a factory before being delivered directly towards the location of the project. Although you can personalize the size that the slab is made, making modifications and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly it is more affordable and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are made with the color, pattern, or texture of your choice. We also can customize a design for your slabs depending on the style you prefer. The application is only available when you select our slabs made of concrete. If not, it's challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like to achieve.
