What is Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are an essential structural element composed of cast concrete. The slab is flat horizontal concrete surface employed as a floor, or roofing. To ensure long-term durability and years in performance, contractors incorporate steel mesh wire or steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
In addition, it is crucial to have an expert calculate and provide the right measurements. The correct thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well the entire structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending on the building. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, 4 inches is the recommended thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness when building carrying heavy loads often.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. For a long time, contractors used it to construct various building structures. It is a common choice to construct foundations and various development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete is incredibly beneficial. The advantages of concrete include:
Longevity and durability
There's probably no more durable construction material that concrete. Proper care and upkeep makes concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend the lifespan and toughness of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that we do not have gaps or pores in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the probability of cracking and other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. It refers to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it's capable of helping adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase indoor temperatures through taking in natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, including its resistance to many different elements. Among them is its lack of organic material. It is therefore unable to change its shape due to rotting and burning caused by extreme heat. In addition, it has significant compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. We can also apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical staining and spills.
Another aspect that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. The material is so flexible it's possible to make a lot of it. Through a variety or methods it is possible to create a concrete slab that is the color, texture or pattern you would like. It is possible to have experts design it, too.
Unlike other construction materials, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
These are slabs created by pouring concrete on the site. The process we follow is installing concrete on the site in order to deliver impressive results. Concrete is poured gives us the flexibility to make any last-minute adjustments to the look of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the project onsite if required. Based on its strengths, it's an excellent choice for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's an issue to this, it's the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab over the site that requires more instruments and equipment, for instance, the concrete mixer and bull floating. Also, we will require extra workers to complete the job. Thus, the expense of installing is higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are lengthy. To cure concrete slab alone takes between 21 and 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is still wet. We wait for the slabs to set so we can conduct one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you're willing to sit for that long then this is the one for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. These slabs are constructed in a factory before being delivered directly into the building site. You can however customize the size of the slab, making adjustments or final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. As opposed to the slabs that are directly poured Precast is cheaper and requires less time.
Decorative Concrete Slab
Decorative concrete slabs are slabs built with the color pattern or texture you want. Also, we can create a design for your slabs in accordance with your preference. The application is only available if you choose our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it will be difficult to create the style or look you're looking for.
