What is a Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is an essential structural element composed of cast concrete. This is an elongated horizontal concrete slab, commonly employed as a floor or for a roof. For long-lasting and durable in performance, contractors incorporate the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.
Additionally, it is important that you have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. Having the right thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab and the whole structure. The slab's thickness differs based on the building. For instance, in the case of residential flooring, four inches is the usual thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness to build carrying heavy loads often.
The advantages of using concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are an extremely well-known construction material. For years, contractors have employed it for the construction of various construction structures. It is an extremely popular option for foundations , as well as other development projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete is extremely beneficial. Its advantages include:
Durability and Longevity
There's probably not a more durable construction material that concrete. A proper maintenance and care can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. The proper reinforcement can increase its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete to ensure that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces within the slab of concrete. Thus, reducing the probability of cracking or other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a very high thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it's capable of helping maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful when you live in extreme temperatures. and night temperatures.
Concrete offers many advantages, like its resistance different elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. So, it doesn't suffer from rotting or rusting caused by excessive heat. Additionally, it has the highest compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another characteristic that makes concrete popular is its versatility. The material is so flexible you can make a lot of it. Making use of different techniques and methods one can build an concrete slab that has the texture, color, as well as the pattern you prefer. Experts can help you design it, too.
In contrast to other materials for construction, concrete is very simple to maintain. It doesn't require frequent maintenance from a professional. You are able to easily get rid of stains, dirt, as well as dust, using standard cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
The Poured Concrete Slabs slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto the spot. We use a specific procedure for creating concrete on the location, which allows us to guarantee significant outcomes. When we pour concrete, we have the freedom to make last-minute changes in the design of our surface. It also allows us to alter the dimensions of the project on site if needed. With its features, it's an ideal choice for customized concrete projects.
If there's one downside to this, it would be time and cost. Since we'll pour a concrete slab on site we will need additional equipment and tools, for example, a concrete mixer and bull floating. We'll also need more workers to complete the job. Thus, the installation cost is more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are slow to cure. To cure concrete slab alone takes about 21 days. We don't leave you with wet concrete. We let the slabs to set so we can do some quality checks before turning over the work. If you're not prepared to be patient, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name says it all, the slabs of this kind are precast. The slabs are made at a factory, and then shipped straight to the construction site. Although you can personalize the dimensions to the slab, making adjustments or final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. Instead of being poured directly, precast costs less and takes less time to complete.

This application is available only in the event that you opt for our concrete slab services. In other cases, it could be impossible to achieve the look or style that you prefer.
