What Is A Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an important structural element that is made of cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete surface employed as a floor or a roof. For durability and to ensure years of use, contractors may add reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
It is also essential that you have an expert calculate and provide the right measurements. A properly measured thickness will impact the strength of the slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the building. For example, in residential floor construction 4 inches is the typical thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have employed it to build a variety of construction structures. It is a popular choice when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete has the advantage of being durable. Its advantages include:
Durability and Longevity
There's no more durable construction material than concrete. The proper care and maintenance can ensure that concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in the slab of concrete. It also reduces the possibility that cracks will occur and damage could result.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass it can control indoor comfort and decrease or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have large thermal mass can be beneficial to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, which include its resistance to different elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. Therefore, it does not suffer from rotting or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Furthermore, it is quite a strong compressive force, which implies it will not break when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another feature that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. The material is so flexible you can do a lot of it. Employing various methods and applications, you can create concrete slabs in the color, texture as well as the pattern you prefer. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance services by a professional. You can quickly get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs slabs created by pouring concrete over the ground. We follow a particular procedure for installing concrete on the site in order to deliver impressive results. Concrete pouring gives us the freedom to make last-minute changes to the appearance of the surface. It also lets us modify the size of the project at the site, if required. Given its qualities, it's a fantastic choice for concrete projects that can be customized.
If there's a downside to this, it's the time and expense. Since we'll have to pour a concrete slab on the ground there is a need for more machinery and tools like one concrete mixer, and a bull float. We'll also require more people to perform the work. So, the price for installation is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are lengthy. For the concrete slab to cure, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is still wet. We wait for the slabs to set so we can conduct checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the work. If you're not prepared to wait that long then this project is perfect for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs are precast. These slabs are constructed in a factory and delivered straight at the place of work. Even though you can modify the size of the slabbut making adjustments or last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Different from the ones that are poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and is less time-consuming.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs for decorative purposes are designed with the color pattern or the texture you prefer. You can also design a design for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This is only possible should you select our poured concrete slab services. If you don't, it's hard to achieve the look or style that you prefer.
