What is Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab refers to an important structural element that is made of concrete cast. It's an even horizontal concrete surface utilized as a floor or roofing. To ensure longevity and years in performance, contractors incorporate the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
However, it is vital to get an expert calculate and provide the right measurements. A properly measured thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well the entire structure. The slab's thickness will vary based on the particular project. For example, for residential floor construction 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness for structures that have heavy load loads regularly.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. For a long time, contractors used it to construct various construction structures. It is a popular choice in foundations and for other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is an excellent choice. Concrete's advantages include:
Durability and long-term durability
There's not a more durable construction material that concrete. The proper care and maintenance can make concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the longevity and durability of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that we do not have any voids or porous areas in the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the probability of cracks, and other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete is known for its high thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to control the flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it's able to control indoor comfort and decrease or boost indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are beneficial for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages including its resistance to many different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. Therefore, it cannot fall apart due to rotting nor rusting caused by excessive heat. It also has quite a strong compressive force, which signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatments to concrete surfaces for them to be more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another reason concrete is extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that it's possible to do lots of it. Employing various methods and applications one can build a concrete slab with the color, texture and design you prefer. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is very simple to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance care by a pro. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust with basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
In the case of Poured Concrete, they are created by pouring concrete on site. We follow a process for installing concrete on site in order to deliver impressive results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the possibility of making last-minute modifications to the look of the surface. It also permits us to adjust the size of the construction site when required. Due to its advantages, it is a great choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's any downside to this, it's the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab to the location the site, we require more tools and equipment like mixing concrete and a bull floating. Additionally, we'll need more people to do the job. Therefore, the cost of installation is much higher. Poured concrete slabs are difficult to work with. For the concrete slab to cure, it can take as long as 21 days. We don't leave 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 not ready to wait that long, it's not for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
According to the name, this slab type is precast. The slabs can be made in a plant and shipped directly for the build site. You can however customize the size of the slabbut making adjustments or urgent changes on the job is impossible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly it is more affordable and takes less time to complete.
