What is Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a popular structural element made of cast concrete. A concrete slab can be described as a smooth horizontal concrete slab, commonly utilized as a floor or a roof. To ensure longevity and years of service, contractors include welding wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
However, it is vital to employ an expert calculator and supply accurate measurements. The correct thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab as well as the structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending upon the specific project. For example, for residential flooring, 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness when building with heavy loads regularly.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is a well-known construction material. Over the years, builders have used it to build various building structures. It is a preferred choice for foundations , as well as other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete has a lot of advantages. The advantages of concrete include:
Durability and longevity
There's probably no more sturdy construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it makes concrete structures last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Correct reinforcement can extend the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted in a way that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within this concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a significant thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to manage the flow of energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it has the ability to regulate comfort in the indoor environment and reduce or increase the temperature of indoor spaces by absorbing natural heat. Materials with the highest thermal mass will be useful to those who live in areas of extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, including its resistance to many different elements. One of them is the absence of organic matter. So, it doesn't decline due to rotting, or corrosion due to heat. Furthermore, it is an impressive compressive strength, which is why it doesn't break when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical spills and stains.
Another attribute that makes cement very popular is its versatility. It is so adaptable that you can do a great deal of it. Employing various methods and applications the possibility of creating concrete slabs in the color, texture, and pattern you like. Experts can design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is very easy to maintain. It does not need regular maintenance or care from a professional. It is easy to get rid of stains, dirt, as well as dust, using standard cleaning products.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured created by pouring concrete over the site. The process we follow is creating concrete on the location, which allows us to guarantee significant results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments on the design and layout of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project in the field if needed. Due to its advantages, it's the ideal option for customized concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this, it would be the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab on the spot and require additional machinery and tools like the concrete mixer and bull floating. Also, we will require more workers to complete the work. This means that the installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs with poured concrete are slow to cure. For the concrete slab to cure, it can take up to 21 days. We don't leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs ' to cure, so we can perform an inspection before turning over the project. If you're not willing to wait that long we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs are precast. They are manufactured in a plant and shipped directly at the place of work. Although you can customize the size to the slab, making adjustments or last-minute changes onsite is impossible. The slabs are not poured directly in the slab, precast costs less money and is less time-consuming.
