What Is A Concrete Slab?

A concrete slab is an extremely popular structural component made from cast concrete. The slab is flat horizontal concrete surface used for flooring or as a roof. For durability and to ensure years of performance, contractors use the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.

Additionally, it is important for an expert to calculate to provide accurate measurements. The correct thickness will influence the strength of the slab as well the entire structure. The slab's size varies depending on the building. For example, for residential flooring four inches is the usual thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness for buildings with heavy loads frequently.


Benefits of Concrete Slabs

Concrete slabs are an extremely popular construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have used it to construct various construction structures. Concrete is a well-known choice for foundations and other construction projects. It is different from other construction materials because concrete has a lot of advantages. Its advantages include:


Durability and longevity

There's probably no more robust construction material than concrete. With proper care and maintenance, you can help concrete structures last for many years. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Proper reinforcement can also prolong its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compress concrete in such a way that we do not have gaps or pores in the slab of concrete. Therefore, it reduces the chance of cracks and other injuries.


Excellent Thermal Mass

Concrete has a significant thermal mass. This refers to its ability to control the flow energy. Because of its high thermal mass it can help regulate indoor comfort as well as reduce or increase temperatures in the indoor space by taking in natural heat. Materials with great thermal mass are beneficial in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.



Concrete has numerous advantages, in particular its resistance to different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. Therefore, it is unable to suffer from rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. Furthermore, it has significant compressive strength that means it isn't likely to break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical staining and spills.



Another aspect that makes concrete famous is its flexibility. Concrete is very flexible and you can make a lot of it. Using different methods and applications it is possible to create concrete slabs in the texture, color, and design that you prefer. You can have experts custom-design it, too.


Low Maintenance

Contrary to other building materials, concrete is incredibly easy to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance care by a pro. You are able to easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust using the most basic cleaning materials.


Poured Concrete Slab

A concrete slab that has been poured is made by pouring the concrete on site. We follow a set of steps for setting up concrete on site and ensuring that we achieve significant results. Concrete is poured gives us the opportunity to make last-minute adjustments to the appearance of the surface. Also, it allows us to modify the size of the job on site if needed. Based on its strengths, it's the perfect option for concrete projects that can be customized.

If there's one downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Because we are pouring a concrete slab on the site we will need additional tools and equipment, such as a concrete mixer and bull floating. We will also need more people to perform the work. This means that the installation cost is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured in a concrete mix are time-consuming. For the concrete slab to cure, it is a process that can take up to 21 working days. We do not leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs ' to cure, so we can do one final quality inspection before handing over the work. If you're not willing to be patient, then this project is perfect for you.


Precast Concrete Slab

Like the name implies, this kind of slab is precast. They are manufactured in a facility before being shipped straight towards the location of the project. While you are able to customize the size of the slab, making adjustments and any last-minute adjustments on site is not possible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly Precast is cheaper and is less time-consuming.


Decorative Concrete Slab

These are concrete slabs created with the color design, or the texture you prefer. We are also able to customize a style for your slabs depending on your preference. This feature is only available when you use our concrete slab poured services. Otherwise, it will be difficult to get the design or style you want.
