What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to the most popular structural element made from cast concrete. The slab is flat horizontal concrete slab that is employed as a floor, or a roof. To ensure durability and years of performance, contractors use the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Meanwhile, it is essential to employ an expert calculator and present accurate measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will impact the strength of the slab, as well as the entire structure. The slab's size varies depending on the structure. For example, for residential flooring, four inches is the norm thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness when building with frequent heavy use.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most sought-after construction materials. For years, contractors employed it for the construction of various building structures. Concrete is the most popular choice to build foundations and other projects. Contrary to other construction materials, concrete is an excellent choice. Its advantages are:
Durability and Longevity
There is no more durable construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care can make concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the durability and lifespan of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the probability of cracking or other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. It refers to its ability to manage the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass it can regulate indoor comfort and reduce or boost indoor temperatures by absorbing 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, that include its resistance against many different elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. Therefore, it is unable to decay due to rotting or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. Furthermore, it has the highest compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another feature that makes concrete popular is its flexibility. It is so adaptable that you can create a variety of it. With a variety of techniques and applications that allow you to make an attractive concrete slab using the color, texture and pattern that you want. You can also have experts customize it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It doesn't require frequent cleaning by a professional. You can get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured made by pouring the concrete on site. We follow a procedure for creating concrete on the location which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us the liberty to make last minute changes in the design of the surface. It also allows us to modify the size of the job on site if it is required. Based on its strengths, it makes a perfect choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's one downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we'll pour a concrete slab on the ground that requires more tools and equipment, like mixing concrete and a bull floating. Also, we will require more people to perform the work. So, the price for installation is much more expensive. Concrete slabs that have been poured are difficult to work with. In the process of cured concrete slabs, it can take as long as 21 days. We do not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We wait for concrete slabs to cure so we can perform checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the project. If you're not willing the time to wait, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are produced in a manufacturing facility and then delivered straight to the construction site. Although you can personalize the size of the slab, making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly in the slab, precast costs less money and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are decorative are which are crafted with the color pattern or texture of your preference. We also can customize a pattern to your slabs based on your preference. This application is available only with our concrete slab services. If you don't, it's challenging to achieve the design or style you'd like.
