What is a concrete slab?
Concrete slabs are a popular structural element made from cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete slab that is utilized as a floor or for a roof. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors add the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.
Furthermore, it is necessary to employ an expert calculator and provide the right measurements. A properly measured thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness can vary depending upon the specific project. For example, for residential flooring 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for buildings with frequent heavy use.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. For a long time, contractors used it to construct various construction structures. It is an extremely popular option when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has the advantage of being durable. Its benefits include:
Durability and long-term durability
There may not be a more durable construction material that concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it can ensure that concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. A proper reinforcement will also increase its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that there aren't any voids or areas of porous material within the concrete slab. This reduces the risk for cracks as well as other damages.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of energy. Because of its thermal mass, it's capable of helping manage indoor comfort and lower or boost indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass work in areas with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has numerous advantages, including its resistance to many various elements. Of these is its lack of organic material. Therefore, it cannot degrade because of rotting or rusting caused by excessive heat. Furthermore, it has the highest compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces that make them more resilient to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is very flexible and you can create a variety of it. Making use of different techniques and methods, you can create an attractive concrete slab using the texture, color, and design that you prefer. Experts can help you design it, too.
Contrary to other construction materials concrete is incredibly simple to maintain. It doesn't require regular maintenance care by a pro. You are able to easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust with the help of basic cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
A concrete slab that has been poured is made by pouring concrete on the site. We follow a process for pouring concrete onto the surface, ensuring we deliver significant outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us liberty to make last minute changes to the appearance of the surface. It also allows us to adjust the size of the construction site when required. Because of its capabilities, it's a fantastic choice for custom concrete projects.
If there's a downside to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab at the site there is a need for more tools and equipment like the use of a concrete mixer or a bull float. We'll also need additional workers to finish the work. Thus, the installation cost is more expensive. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are very time-consuming. To cure concrete slab alone takes up to 21 days. We don't leave with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs to cure so we can do checks on the quality of the concrete before handing over the project. If you're willing to wait that long then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, this slab type is precast. They are manufactured in a factory and delivered straight onto the site of construction. Though you can alter the size of the slabbut making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. Different from the ones that are poured directly, precast costs less and takes less time.
