What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab is an extremely popular structural component made from cast concrete. This is an elongated, horizontal concrete surface , which is often used as a floor or a roof. For durability and to ensure years of efficiency, contractors will add an unwelded wire mesh or reinforcement steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
Furthermore, it is necessary for an expert to calculate to provide accurate measurements. A proper thickness will impact the integrity of the slab as well as the structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based upon the specific project. For example, in residential flooring 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for construction which are subject to frequent heavy loads.
Benefits of Using Concrete Slab
A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. For a long time, contractors have used it to build various building structures. It is a common choice in foundations and for other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is extremely beneficial. Its benefits include:
Longevity and Durability
There's not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. If properly maintained and cared for, it will allow concrete structures to last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong the life span and strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete to the point that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in the concrete slab. Thus, reducing the chances of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its high thermal mass, it is able to control indoor comfort and decrease or increase indoor temperatures through taking in natural heat. Materials with great thermal mass are beneficial in places with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete has many advantages, in particular its resistance to different elements. In addition, it lacks of organic matter. Therefore, it does not change its shape due to rotting and the formation of rust due to excessive heat. Additionally, it has an extremely high compressive strength that signifies that it will not fracture when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatment on concrete surfaces in order to make them more resistant to chemical spills and stains.
Another aspect that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. The material is so flexible you can do a lot of it. By using a variety methods and tools you can make a concrete slab with the texture, color and pattern that you want. You can have experts custom-design it, too.
In contrast to other construction materials concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance care by a pro. You can easily rid yourself of dirt, stains and dust by using simple cleaning materials.
Poured Concrete Slab
They are created by pouring concrete on the ground. We follow a set of steps for creating concrete on the location which guarantees us to provide significant results. Pouring concrete gives us the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments regarding the design of the surface. Additionally, we can alter the dimensions that the project is needed. Based on its strengths, it's an ideal choice for custom concrete projects.
If there is a downside to this, it's the time and expense. As we pour a concrete slab on the ground it is necessary to have more tools and equipment, like the use of a concrete mixer or a bull float. Additionally, we'll require extra workers to complete the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is much higher. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are difficult to work with. A concrete slab that is cured on its own can take up to 21 days. The slabs are not left with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs ' curing time so we can perform an assessment of quality prior to turning over the work. If you're unable to wait that long, then this project isn't for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
Like the name implies, this kind of slab is precast. These slabs are constructed at a factory and are then shipped directly over to the job site. Although you have the option of modifying the dimensions to the slab, making adjustments and quick changes on-site is impossible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and takes less time to complete.
Decorative Concrete Slab

This service is available only If you opt for our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it's difficult to create the style or style you'd like.
