What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a popular structural element made of cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a floor or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable of use, contractors may add reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary that you have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. In the end, the proper thickness will affect the integrity of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the design. For instance, in the case of residential floor construction, 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for structures with heavy loads regularly.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
A concrete slab is an extremely well-known construction material. For a long time, contractors constructed a variety of construction structures. Concrete is a well-known choice to construct foundations and various development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is so advantageous. Its advantages are:
Durability and Longevity
There's no more sturdy construction material than concrete. Care and maintenance 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. Concrete can be compacted in a way that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in this concrete slab. So, reducing the likelihood of cracking or other damage.
Fantastic Thermal Mass
Concrete has a large thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its large thermal mass, concrete can adjust indoor comfort levels and reduce or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are beneficial for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, among them its resistance various elements. The most notable is the lack of organic material. So, it doesn't decay due to rotting or corrosion due to heat. Furthermore, it has quite a strong compressive force that means that it won't break when squeezed. There are also specific concrete treatments to concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another factor that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. Concrete is so flexible that you can do a great deal of it. Employing various methods and applications for creating concrete slabs in the texture, color and design you prefer. Experts can design it, too.
As opposed to other construction materials concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance by a professional. It is easy to get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using simple cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
These are slabs made by pouring concrete on the ground. We follow a particular procedure for making concrete at the site which ensures that we can deliver substantial outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us freedom to make last-minute changes on the design and layout of the surface. It also permits us to alter the dimensions of the project at the site, if required. Based on its strengths, it's a good choice to build concrete projects with a custom design.
If there's a negative to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab on the site there is a need for more instruments and equipment, for instance, one concrete mixer, and a bull floating. Also, we will require additional workers to finish the job. This means that the installation cost is higher. Concrete slabs with poured concrete are costly to install. For a concrete slab to cure on its own, it takes about 21 days. We do not leave with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs ' to cure, so we can perform some quality checks before turning over the project. If you're unable to wait that long then this one's for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
As the name suggests, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs are created at a factory and are then shipped straight over to the job site. Although you can customize the size of the slab, making adjustments or modifications at the last minute on the site is not feasible. Instead of being poured directly the precast slab is less expensive and requires less time.
