What Is A Concrete Slab?

A concrete slab refers to an essential structural element composed of cast concrete. This is an elongated horizontal concrete slab, commonly used for floors or roofing. To ensure durability and years of use, contractors may add an welded wire mesh or steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.

However, it is vital to hire an expert calculation to provide accurate measurements. A properly measured thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab and the entire structure. The slab's thickness is dependent on the type of project. For instance, in 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 Concrete Slabs

A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have used it to construct various building structures. It's a standard choice for foundations and other development projects. Like other construction materials concrete is so advantageous. Its benefits include:


Longevity and Durability

There's probably not a more sturdy construction material than concrete. With proper care and maintenance, you can make concrete structures 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 in such a way that we do not have any pores or voids in this concrete slab. Thus, reducing the risk for cracks as well as other damages.


Fantastic Thermal Mass

Concrete has a substantial thermal mass. This is due to its capacity to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass it can manage indoor comfort and lower or increase temperatures in the indoor space by absorbing natural heat. Materials that have the highest thermal mass will be useful in areas that experience extreme day and night temperatures.



Concrete has many advantages such as its resistance to different elements. The most notable is the lack of organic matter. So, it doesn't decay due to rotting or the burning of metals caused by excessive heat. It also has significant compressive strength that means it will not fracture when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments on concrete surfaces to help them resist to chemical spills and stains.



Another aspect that makes concrete extremely popular is its versatility. Concrete is so versatile that you can do a great deal of it. Employing various methods and applications, you can create a concrete slab that is the texture, color and pattern of your preference. The experts can custom design it, too.


Low Maintenance

In contrast to other construction materials concrete is extremely simple to maintain. Concrete doesn't require regular maintenance care by a pro. You can easily rid yourself of stains, dirt, and dust by using simple cleaning products.


Poured Concrete Slab

A concrete slab that has been poured is made by pouring concrete on the site. We follow a method for installing concrete on site and ensuring that we achieve significant results. The process of pouring concrete allows us the liberty to make last minute changes regarding the design of the surface. Also, it allows us to adjust the size of the project in the field if required. Based on its strengths, it's an ideal choice for custom concrete projects.

If there's a downside to this, it would be the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab on the site we will need additional equipment and tools, such as an electric mixer for concrete as well as a bull float. Additionally, we'll need more workers for the job. So, the price for installation is much higher. Concrete slabs that have been poured are long-lasting. To cure concrete slab alone can take up to 21 days. Our goal is to not leave you with concrete that is wet. We let the slabs to dry so that we can do one final quality inspection before handing over the project. If you're unable to wait for that long then this one's for you.


Precast Concrete Slab

The name implies that this kind of slab is precast. The slabs are made by a manufacturer and then transported straight onto the site of construction. Though you can alter the size to the slab, making adjustments or last-minute changes onsite is impossible. Like the slabs you pour directly it is more affordable and is also less time-consuming.


Decorative Concrete Slab

Concrete slabs with decorative design are created with the color pattern or design you like. We can also customize a design for your slabs at the discretion of your taste. This application is available only with our concrete slab service. If you don't, it's hard to achieve the look or style you want.
