What is Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a well-known structural element constructed of concrete cast. It's flat horizontal concrete surface which is typically used as a floor or a roof. For durability and to ensure years of service, contractors include reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Meanwhile, it is essential to hire an expert calculation and present accurate measurements. The correct thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab and the whole structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the type of project. For instance, in residential flooring 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness to build that carry heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. For decades, contractors have employed it to construct a variety of construction structures. Concrete is the most popular choice for foundations and other construction projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably not a more durable construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, 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 compress concrete in such a way that we do not have many voids, or porous spaces in this concrete slab. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks or other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass. It refers to its ability to control the flow energy. Because of its thermal mass, concrete can help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce or boost indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are useful in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, among them its resistance various elements. Of these is its lack of organic material. Therefore, it cannot degrade because of rotting or corrosion due to heat. Additionally, it has a high compressive strength that implies it will not break when squeezed. It's also possible to apply specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another reason concrete is popular is its versatility. It is so adaptable that you can create a variety of it. Making use of different techniques and methods for creating a concrete slab that is the texture, color, as well as the pattern you prefer. The experts can custom design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance from a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs created by pouring a concrete slab on site. We follow a method for installing concrete on the site so that we can guarantee substantial outcomes. The process of pouring concrete allows us the flexibility to make changes to the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to alter the dimensions that the project is needed. With its features, it's the ideal option for custom concrete projects.
If there's any downside to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab onto the site there is a need for more equipment and tools, for example, an concrete mixer as well as a bull float. We'll also require an additional workforce to do the job. So, the price for installation is more expensive. Concrete slabs with poured concrete are slow to cure. To cure concrete slabs alone can take up to 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We allow concrete slabs to cure so we can do one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you're not prepared to be patient, then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs are precast. The slabs are created in a facility before being shipped directly into the building site. Even though you can modify the dimensions of the slab, making adjustments or necessary changes at the last minute is not possible. Like the slabs you pour directly that are precast, it costs less and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs designed with the color pattern, or design of your choice. We can also customize a pattern for your slabs depending on your preference. This feature is only available if you choose our concrete slabs poured service. If not, it's difficult to create the design or style you'd like.
