What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a structural feature that is commonly made out of cast concrete. It's an even horizontal concrete surface commonly employed as a floor or roofing. To ensure durability and years of performance, contractors use welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Additionally, it is important to hire an expert calculation and present accurate measurements. A proper thickness will impact the integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the project. For instance, in the case of residential flooring, 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for construction with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. For decades, contractors have used it to build various construction structures. Concrete is a well-known choice for foundations and other development projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete has a lot of advantages. Its advantages include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's probably no more durable construction material that concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it makes concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend the lifespan and robustness of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within the slab of concrete. It also reduces the possibility that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass. This refers to its capacity to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, concrete can regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have significant thermal mass are ideal in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, for example, its resistance to various elements. Of these is its lack of organic matter. Therefore, it cannot decay due to rotting or corrosion caused by high temperatures. It also has a relatively high compressive strength that means it will not break when squeezed. Additionally, we can apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical spills and stains.
Another reason concrete is popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile that you can do a great deal of it. By using a variety methods and tools it is possible to create a concrete slab in the texture, color or pattern you would like. There are experts who can customize it, too.
Like other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance care by a pro. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust with basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are created by pouring concrete on the spot. There is a method we use for installing concrete on the site to ensure we get significant results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the possibility of making last-minute modifications in the design of the surface. It also allows us to adjust the size of the job on site if it is required. With its features, it's the ideal option for custom concrete projects.
If there's a drawback to this, it's time and cost. Because we are pouring a concrete slab at the site, we need more equipment and tools, for example, an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull floating. We'll also need more people to perform the work. The installation cost is more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also costly to install. For the concrete slab to cure, it takes up to 21 days. We do not leave with concrete that is still wet. We let the slabs to cure so we can conduct some quality checks before turning over the work. If you're unwilling to wait for that long we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this type of slab is precast. The slabs are made in a manufacturing facility and then delivered straight onto the site of construction. You can however customize the dimensions in the slab, making adjustments and final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. Unlike the ones poured directly, precast costs less and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
decorative concrete slabs are slabs of concrete that have the color, design or the texture you prefer. We can also create a style for your slabs depending on the style you prefer. This is only possible should you select our slabs made of concrete. In the absence of this, it can be impossible to achieve the look or design you'd like.
