What is a concrete slab?

A concrete slab refers to a common structural component made from cast concrete. The slab is flat, horizontal concrete surface that is commonly used as a floor or for a roof. To ensure the durability and longevity of performance, contractors use steel mesh wire or steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.

Additionally, it is important for an expert to calculate and provide proper measurements. The correct thickness will affect the quality of the slab, as well as the entire structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the structure. For example, for residential floor construction 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts suggest five to six inches of thickness when building which are subject to frequent heavy loads.


Benefits of Using Concrete Slab

Concrete slabs are a very popular construction material. For a long time, contractors used it to create various construction structures. It is a preferred choice to build foundations and other projects. As opposed to other materials for construction, concrete has the advantage of being durable. Its benefits include:


Longevity and durability

There may not be a more durable construction material than concrete. When properly cared for and maintained, it can make 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. We can compact concrete so that there aren't any gaps or porous areas in this concrete slab. It also reduces the possibility of cracking and other damages.


Excellent Thermal Mass

Concrete has a high thermal mass. It refers to its capacity to regulate the flow or flow of thermal energy. Because of its high thermal mass, concrete can improve indoor comfort, and also reduce or increase indoor temperatures through taking in natural heat. Materials that have high thermal mass are useful in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.



Concrete has numerous advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. This includes its absence of organic matter. Therefore, it cannot suffer from rotting or the rusting that is caused by heat. Furthermore, it has the highest compressive strength that is why it doesn't break when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical spills and stains.



Another characteristic that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile that it's possible to do lots of it. Making use of different techniques and methods that allow you to make concrete slabs with the color, texture and pattern that you want. You can have experts custom-design it, too.


Low Maintenance

Like other construction materials concrete is extremely easy to maintain. Concrete does not require frequent upkeep by a professional. You can quickly get rid of dirt, stains and dust by using common cleaning supplies.


Poured Concrete Slab

Poured concrete slabs are slabs constructed by pouring concrete onto site. We follow a process for setting up concrete on site to ensure we get significant outcomes. Pouring concrete gives us possibility of making last-minute modifications in the design of our surface. It also allows us to alter the dimensions of the construction site when it is required. Thanks to its attributes, it's the perfect option for customized concrete projects.

If there's a drawback to this plan, it's the time and expense. Since we pour a concrete slab on the ground that requires more instruments and equipment, for instance, mixing concrete and a bull floating. Additionally, we'll need more people to do the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is much more expensive. Concrete slabs poured with a pour are very time-consuming. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own is a process that can take up to 21 working days. We don't leave you with concrete that is wet. We wait for the slabs to dry so that we can do an inspection before turning over the project. If you're unable to be patient, it's not for you.


Precast Concrete Slab

The name implies that the slabs are precast. These slabs are constructed in a facility before being shipped straight at the place of work. Even though you can modify the size for the slab, making any adjustments and quick changes on-site is impossible. Contrary to the slabs poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and requires less time.


Decorative Concrete Slab

The decorative concrete slabs are which are crafted with the color pattern or texture of your choice. They can also be customized with a design for your slabs depending on your preference. This option is only available when you use our concrete slab service. Otherwise, it will be challenging to achieve the design or style you desire.
