What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an essential structural element composed from cast concrete. They are flat horizontal concrete slab, commonly employed as a floor or a roof. To ensure durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate steel mesh wire or steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
It is also essential to get an expert calculate and take the proper measurements. A proper thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab as well the entire structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the structure. For example, in residential floor construction, 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness in buildings that have heavy load loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is a well-known construction material. For decades, contractors have employed it for the construction of various construction structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete is incredibly beneficial. Its benefits include:
Longevity and Durability
There's probably not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it will allow concrete structures to last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can make concrete compact so that there aren't gaps or pores within this concrete slab. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks or other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass it can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, that include its resistance against many different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic matter. This means it won't decay due to rotting or rusting caused by excessive heat. It also has the highest compressive strength that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. You can also apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to give them a better resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another factor that makes concrete well-known is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile it's possible to do lots of it. Using different methods and applications and techniques, you can design concrete slabs that have the texture, color, and pattern that you want. The experts can custom design it, too.
In contrast with other construction materials concrete is simple to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance services by a professional. You can get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using simple cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the spot. We use a specific procedure for placing concrete on the spot in order to deliver impressive outcomes. Concrete pouring gives us the liberty to make last minute changes to the look of the surface. It also lets us modify the size of the project onsite if required. Due to its characteristics, it's an ideal choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's an issue to this, it would be the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab to the location that requires more equipment and tools, such as one concrete mixer, and a bull float. We will also need an additional workforce to do the work. Thus, the installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are costly to install. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. We don't leave with wet concrete. We let the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can conduct some quality checks before turning over the project. If you're not willing to wait that long then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. The slabs are created at a factory, and then shipped straight on to construction sites. Although you can personalize the size and shape of your slabs, making changes and final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. The slabs are not poured directly they are less costly and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
These are concrete slabs that are made using the color, pattern or texture of your preference. We also can customize a pattern for your slabs according to the design you like. This option is only available If you opt for our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it's very difficult to design or style you want.
