What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to an important structural element that is made of concrete cast. It's flat, horizontal concrete surface used as a floor and a roof. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors add reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Also, it's important to get an expert calculate and take the proper measurements. A properly measured thickness will influence the strength of the slab and the whole structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the construction. For example, in residential floor construction, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is a popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have used it to build various building structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other construction projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is so advantageous. Concrete's advantages include:
Longevity, Durability, and Durability
There's probably not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can help concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't the appearance of voids or porous regions within this concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracking or other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass. It refers to its ability to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it has the ability to maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase temperatures in the indoor space by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass work for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, that include its resistance against many different elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. Therefore, it cannot change its shape due to rotting and corrosion caused by high temperatures. It also has significant compressive strength, which means it will not break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatment on concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical staining and spills.
Another attribute that makes cement very popular is its versatility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that it's possible to make a lot of it. By employing different methods and application the possibility of creating a concrete slab that is the color, texture, as well as the pattern you prefer. The experts can custom design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using simple cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are created by pouring concrete on site. We follow a process for creating concrete on the location which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us flexibility to make changes to the appearance of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project at the site, if needed. Given its qualities, it is a great choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's one downside to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab onto the site, we need more devices and tools, including the use of a concrete mixer or a bull float. There will also be a need for an additional workforce to do the work. Thus, the installation cost is much more expensive. Poured concrete slabs can be difficult to work with. To cure concrete slab alone takes up to 21 days. We do not leave with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs ' to cure so we can conduct one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you don't want the time to wait, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this type of slab is precast. The slabs are made in a factory before being delivered straight to the construction site. Though you can alter the size for the slab, making any adjustments or late-night changes on site isn't feasible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured as precasts, precast costs less and is also less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs with decorative design are constructed with the color, design or pattern of your choice. They can also be customized with a pattern to your slabs according to your preferences. This is only possible when you select our poured concrete slab services. If you don't, it's difficult to create the style or look you're looking for.
