What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a well-known structural element constructed of concrete cast. This is an elongated, vertical concrete surface typically used for floors or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable of operation, contractors install an welded wire mesh or steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Also, it's important that you have an expert calculate and supply accurate measurements. The proper thickness of the slab will influence the strength of the slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the project. For example, in residential flooring four inches is the usual thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build carrying heavy loads often.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. For years, contractors used it to construct various building structures. It is a popular choice to build foundations and other projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete is incredibly beneficial. Its benefits include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. The proper care and maintenance makes concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that we do not have any pores or voids within the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass it can improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase indoor temperatures by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages for example, its resistance to various elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to decline due to rotting, or rusting caused by excessive heat. In addition, it has an extremely high compressive strength that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another aspect that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and it's possible to do lots of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques that allow you to make concrete slabs in the texture, color as well as the pattern you prefer. The experts can custom design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance from a professional. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning supplies.
Poured Concrete Slab
Poured concrete slabs are slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the ground. We follow a set of steps for placing concrete on the spot, which allows us to guarantee significant outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us the ability to make last-minute changes regarding the design of the surface. It also allows us to adjust the size of the work on the spot if needed. With its features, it is a great choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's any downside to this, it's the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab on the spot there is a need for more equipment and tools, for example, a concrete mixer and bull floating. We will also need more workers for the job. Thus, the installation cost is higher. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are slow to cure. A concrete slab that is cured on its own could take up to 21 calendar days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is wet. We allow the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can do some quality checks before turning over the work. If you don't want to be patient, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this slab type is precast. These slabs are constructed at a factory and are then shipped directly to the construction site. Although you can personalize the dimensions or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments or any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and takes less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are constructed with the color, pattern or texture of your choice. We are also able to create a custom style for your slabs based on your preference. This option is only available with our concrete slabs poured service. If not, it's impossible to achieve the look or style you'd like.
