What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to an important structural element that is made from cast concrete. This is an elongated horizontal concrete surface used as a floor and for a roof. 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.
Additionally, it is important that you have an expert calculate and supply accurate measurements. The right thickness can alter the strength of slab, as well as the entire structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the type of project. For instance, in the case of residential flooring 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for structures which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is a very popular construction material. For many years, contractors have used it to create various construction structures. It's a standard choice in foundations and for other development projects. In contrast to other building materials, concrete has many advantages. Its advantages include:
Durability and longevity
There's no more robust construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it could make concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the longevity and durability of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material within this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances for cracks as well as other damages.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. It refers to its ability to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it has the ability to adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are helpful to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, in particular its resistance to different elements. In addition, it lacks of organic material. Therefore, it cannot degrade because of rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. It also has a high compressive strength that means that it won't break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatment on concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another factor that makes concrete very popular is its versatility. Concrete is extremely flexible, it's possible to do lots of it. Employing various methods and applications and techniques, you can design concrete slabs in the color, texture, and pattern of your preference. Experts can design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You are able to easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are created by pouring concrete over site. We follow a process for setting up concrete on site to ensure we get significant outcomes. The process of pouring concrete allows us the freedom to make last-minute changes to the design of the surface. It also allows us to modify the size of the project at the site, if it is required. Due to its characteristics, it's a fantastic choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's a drawback to this, it would be time and cost. Because we will pour a concrete slab to the location that requires more equipment and tools, for example, an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull float. There will also be a need for more people to perform the work. Thus, the installation cost is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are laborious. To cure concrete slab alone takes about 21 days. We will not leave you with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs ' to cure, so we can conduct an inspection before turning over the project. If you're not ready to wait that long then this option is ideal for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, this kind of slab is precast. They are manufactured at a factory and are then shipped directly to the construction site. However, you can tailor the dimensions of the slab, making adjustments or late-night changes on site isn't feasible. Like the slabs you pour directly Precast is cheaper and is also less time-consuming.
