What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to an important structural element that is made from cast concrete. The slab is flat, horizontal concrete surface used for flooring or a roof. To ensure durability and years of service, contractors include the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Also, it's important to get an expert calculate and provide the right measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will affect the integrity of the slab as well the entire structure. The thickness of the slab varies based upon the specific project. For example, in residential floor construction 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for buildings which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is a very popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have employed it for the construction of various building structures. It is an extremely popular option to construct foundations and various development projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete has the advantage of being durable. Its benefits include:
Longevity and Durability
There is no more robust construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces in the concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracking or other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Due to its thermal mass help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass work especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. It therefore does not change its shape due to rotting and an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Furthermore, it has significant compressive strength, which is why it doesn't break when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile you can do a great deal of it. With a variety of techniques and applications you can make concrete slabs in the texture, color, and pattern you like. The experts can custom design it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent cleaning by a professional. You can quickly get rid of dirt, stains and dust using the most basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Formed concrete slabs can be described as made by pouring the concrete on the ground. We use a specific procedure for placing concrete on the ground and ensuring that we achieve significant results. Pouring concrete gives us possibility of making last-minute modifications in the design of the surface. Additionally, we can alter the dimensions of the project onsite if it is required. With its features, it's an excellent choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's a downside to this, it would be time and cost. Because we will pour a concrete slab on the spot there is a need for more equipment and tools, for example, an concrete mixer as well as a bull floating. Also, we will require extra workers to complete the work. Thus, the expense of installing is higher. Poured concrete slabs are also laborious. To cure concrete slabs alone takes about 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is still wet. We wait for concrete slabs to cure so we can perform checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the work. If you don't want to wait for that long it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are created by a manufacturer and then transported straight over to the job site. Though you can alter the dimensions for the slab, making any adjustments and necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. Like the slabs you pour directly Precast is cheaper and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs made with the color, design or design of your choice. We can also customize a design for your slabs in accordance with your preference. This is only possible on the basis of our concrete slab service. In other cases, it could be difficult to get the design or style you desire.
