What is a Concrete Slab?
Concrete slabs are a structural feature that is commonly made of cast concrete. It's a flat, vertical concrete surface typically employed as a floor, or as a roof. To ensure long-lasting durability and years of performance, contractors use an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Meanwhile, it is essential for an expert to calculate and take the proper measurements. A proper thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab as well as the whole structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the type of project. For example, for residential flooring 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for structures with frequent heavy use.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
A concrete slab is one of the most sought-after construction materials. For years, contractors have constructed a variety of construction structures. It is an extremely popular option for foundations and other development projects. Like other construction materials concrete has so many advantages. Its benefits include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's no more sturdy construction material than concrete. Maintenance and proper care can make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. In addition, proper reinforcement can prolong the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that we do not have the appearance of voids or porous regions within the slab of concrete. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks or other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete is characterized by its high thermal mass, which refers to its ability to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it's capable of helping maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase indoor temperatures through absorbing natural heat. Materials with the highest thermal mass will be useful in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, including its resistance to many different elements. Of these is its lack of organic material. So, it doesn't suffer from rotting or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. Furthermore, it has a relatively high compressive strength that means that it won't break when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another aspect that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is very flexible and it's easy to make lots of it. By using a variety methods and tools and techniques, you can design concrete slabs in the color, texture, and design that you prefer. Experts can help you design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance from a professional. You can get rid of stains, dirt, and dust by using common cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs that are poured that are made by pouring concrete directly on site. We use a specific procedure for placing concrete on the spot in order to deliver impressive results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the look of the surface. Additionally, we can alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if it is required. Due to its characteristics, it's a good choice for custom concrete construction projects.
If there's one downside to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll pour a concrete slab to the location the site, we require more machinery and tools like mixing concrete and a bull float. Additionally, we'll need more workers for the job. Also, the installation price is much higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are slow to cure. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it takes about 21 days. We don't leave with wet concrete. We allow the slabs ' curing time so we can conduct an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the work. If you're unwilling to wait for that long then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, the slabs are precast. They are manufactured in a manufacturing facility and then delivered directly over to the job site. Though you can alter the size of the slabbut making adjustments and modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. Unlike the ones poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and requires less time.
