What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to an essential structural element composed of concrete cast. This is an elongated horizontal concrete surface which is typically employed as a floor, or roofing. For long-lasting and durable of performance, contractors add welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Meanwhile, it is essential to get an expert calculate and supply accurate measurements. A properly measured thickness will affect the quality of the slab and also the overall structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the construction. For instance, in the case of residential flooring, 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for buildings carrying heavy loads often.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a well-known construction material. For decades, contractors have used it to construct various construction structures. It's a standard choice to construct foundations and various development projects. It is different from other construction materials because concrete has the advantage of being durable. Its advantages include:
Durability and long-term durability
There is no more durable construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care will ensure that concrete structures last for many years. 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 compact concrete so that there aren't the appearance of voids or porous regions within the concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracking and other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a great thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow and distribution of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass control indoor comfort and decrease or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by absorption of natural heat. Materials with high thermal mass are beneficial especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, among them its resistance various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. Therefore, it does not decay due to rotting or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. Furthermore, it is quite a strong compressive force, which means it will not fracture when squeezed. It's also possible to apply specific concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another reason concrete is popular is its flexibility. Concrete is so versatile you can make a lot of it. Making use of different techniques and methods, you can create a concrete slab in the texture, color, and design of your choice. The experts can custom design it, too.
Contrary to other building materials, concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust using a few basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs slabs created by pouring concrete over the ground. The process we follow is setting up concrete on site, ensuring we deliver significant results. Concrete pouring gives us the possibility of making last-minute modifications on the design and layout of the surface. It also lets us adjust the size of the construction site when necessary. Given its qualities, it's an ideal choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's one downside to this, it would be time and cost. Because we will pour a concrete slab on the site we will need additional devices and tools, including an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull floating. Also, we will require extra workers to complete the job. Thus, the installation cost is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are also long-lasting. Curing concrete slabs by itself can take as long as 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow concrete slabs to cure so we can perform one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you don't want to endure that much time, then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this slab type is precast. The slabs are created in a manufacturing facility and then delivered directly into the building site. Although you can personalize the size for the slab, making any adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. Different from the ones that are poured directly, precast costs less and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs which are crafted with the color pattern, or design of your choice. We can also create a style for your slabs depending on the style you prefer. This service is only available if you choose our concrete slabs poured service. If not, it's difficult to create the design or design you'd like.
