What is a concrete slab?

A concrete slab is an important structural element that is made from cast concrete. It is a flat horizontal concrete surface which is typically employed as a floor or for a roof. In order to guarantee durability and years of efficiency, contractors will add welded wire mesh or reinforcing steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.

Furthermore, it is necessary that you have an expert calculate and give accurate measurements. The correct thickness will influence the structural integrity of the slab and the entire structure. The thickness of the slab varies based on the design. For example, in residential flooring, 4 inches is the standard thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness for construction which are subject to frequent heavy loads.


The advantages of using concrete slabs

Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. Over the years, builders have used it to construct various construction structures. It is an extremely popular option when it comes to foundations as well as development projects. Different from other construction materials concrete has many advantages. Its benefits include:


Durability and long-term durability

There is no more robust construction material than concrete. Proper care and upkeep can ensure that concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the life and strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that we do not have any voids or areas of porous material in the concrete slab. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks, and other damage.


Fantastic Thermal Mass

Concrete is known for its high thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Because of its thermal mass, it can manage indoor comfort and lower and increase indoor temperatures by taking in natural heat. Materials with great thermal mass are beneficial especially in regions with extreme day and night temperatures.



Concrete offers many advantages, among them its resistance various elements. Among them is its lack of organic material. It therefore does not degrade because of rotting or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. It also has significant compressive strength that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. It is also possible to apply certain concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical staining and spills.



Another aspect that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile that you can create a variety of it. By using a variety methods and tools it is possible to create a concrete slab in the color, texture and design you prefer. It is possible to have experts design it, too.


Low Maintenance

In contrast with other construction materials concrete is simple to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance care by a pro. You can easily get rid of stains, dirt, and dust using a few basic cleaning materials.


Poured Concrete Slab

They are created by pouring concrete over site. The process we follow is making concrete at the site which guarantees us to provide significant outcomes. Concrete installation gives us liberty to make last minute changes to the look of the surface. It also allows us to adjust the size of the construction site when required. Because of its capabilities, it is a great choice for custom concrete projects.

If there's a negative to this, it's time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab onto the site we will need additional tools and equipment, such as mixing concrete and a bull float. There will also be a need for more people to perform the work. So, the price for installation is more expensive. Concrete slabs that are poured are laborious. Curing concrete slabs by itself takes between 21 and 21 days. We do not leave you with wet concrete. We wait for the slabs ' cure time to pass so we can do an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you're not prepared to wait that long then this is the one for you.


Precast Concrete Slab

As the name suggests, this slab type is precast. The slabs are made in a factory and delivered straight on to construction sites. Though you can alter the size or thickness of the slabs however making adjustments and urgent changes on the job is impossible. Unlike the ones poured directly in the slab, precast costs less money and is less time-consuming.


Decorative Concrete Slab

The decorative concrete slabs are built with the color pattern or the texture you prefer. We are also able to customize a layout for your slabs according to the design you like. This feature is only available in the event that you opt for our concrete slabs that are poured. Otherwise, it's challenging to achieve the design or style you want.
