What is a Concrete Slab?

Concrete slabs are a common structural component made of cast concrete. This is an elongated horizontal concrete surface used as a floor or as a roof. To ensure the durability and longevity in performance, contractors incorporate an welded wire mesh or steel bars to a reinforced concrete slab.

Additionally, it is important to have an expert calculate and provide proper measurements. The right thickness can affect the quality of the slab and the whole structure. The thickness of the slab will differ based on the project. For example, for residential flooring, 4 inches is considered the ideal thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches of thickness in buildings that have heavy load loads regularly.


Benefits of Using Concrete Slab

A concrete slab is one of the most popular construction materials. Since the beginning, contractors have used it to build various building structures. Concrete is the most popular choice for foundations and other construction projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete has the advantage of being durable. Concrete's advantages include:


Longevity, Durability, and Durability

There may not be a more durable construction material that concrete. Maintenance and proper care makes concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Reinforcements that are properly done can also extend the longevity and durability of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted so that there aren't the appearance of voids or porous regions within this concrete slab. So, reducing the likelihood that cracks will occur and damage could result.


Fantastic Thermal Mass

Concrete has a significant thermal mass, which relates to its capacity to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its thermal mass, it has the ability to regulate indoor comfort and reduce and increase indoor temperatures by absorption of natural heat. Materials with significant thermal mass are ideal in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.



Concrete is a material with many advantages, like its resistance various elements. Among them is its lack of organic matter. This means it won't decline due to rotting, or an excessive amount of heat that causes rust. In addition, it has an extremely high compressive strength that ensures it will not crack when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical spills and stains.



Another factor that makes concrete well-known is its flexibility. Concrete is so flexible that you can do a lot of it. By using a variety methods and tools, you can create a concrete slab with the color, texture and pattern that you want. It is possible to have experts design it, too.


Low Maintenance

Like other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. It does not require regular maintenance maintenance from a professional. You can quickly get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning supplies.


Poured Concrete Slab

Formed concrete slabs can be described as made by pouring the concrete on the site. We follow a process for creating concrete on the location, ensuring we deliver significant outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us the possibility of making last-minute modifications to the layout of the surface. It also lets us adjust the size of the project on site if required. Its advantages mean that it makes a perfect choice for custom concrete projects.

If there's any downside to this plan, it's time and cost. Since we'll be pouring a concrete slab on the site it is necessary to have more equipment and tools, such as an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull float. Additionally, we'll require an additional workforce to do the job. So, the price for installation is much higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are time-consuming. Curing concrete slabs by itself takes between 21 and 21 days. It is not our intention to leave you with concrete that is still wet. We allow the slabs to set so we can conduct an inspection to ensure the quality before turning over the work. If you're not prepared to put off waiting that long, then this is the one for you.


Precast Concrete Slab

As the name suggests, this slab type is precast. The slabs will be manufactured in a factory and delivered directly over to the job site. Although you can personalize the dimensions to the slab, making adjustments and quick changes on-site is impossible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly that are precast, it costs less and takes less time.


Decorative Concrete Slab

Decorative concrete slabs are slabs that are made using the color, pattern or texture of your preference. They can also be customized with a pattern for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. The application is only available if you choose our poured concrete slab services. Otherwise, it's difficult to get the design or design you'd like.
