What is Concrete Slab?

A concrete slab refers to a structural feature that is commonly made from cast concrete. The slab is flat horizontal concrete surface which is typically used for floors or as a roof. To ensure long-lasting durability and years of performance, contractors use an welded wire mesh or steel bars to the concrete slab they have reinforced.

In addition, it is crucial that you have an expert calculate and give accurate measurements. A proper thickness will have an impact on the integrity of your slab as well as the overall structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the construction. For example, for residential flooring, 4 inches is a standard thickness. Experts recommend 5 to 6 inches for buildings with heavy loads regularly.


Benefits of Concrete Slabs

Concrete slabs are a well-known construction material. Since the beginning, contractors have used it to build various construction structures. It is an extremely popular option for foundations as well as other development projects. As opposed to other building materials concrete is extremely beneficial. Its advantages include:


Durability and longevity

There may not be a more robust construction material than concrete. With proper care and maintenance, you can allow concrete structures to last for decades. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Effective reinforcement is also able to extend its lifespan and increase the strength of concrete slabs. We can compact concrete so that there aren't many voids, or porous spaces in this concrete slab. This reduces the risk for cracks as well as other damages.


Fantastic Thermal Mass

Concrete is known for its high thermal mass. This is due to its ability to regulate the flow of thermal energy. Due to its thermal mass, it can manage indoor comfort and lower or increase the temperature inside by absorption of natural heat. Materials with large thermal mass can be beneficial for areas that have extreme day and night temperatures.



Concrete has many advantages, for example, its resistance to different elements. Its main advantage is its absence of organic material. Thus, it will not become degraded due to rotting or corrosion caused by high temperatures. It also has significant compressive strength, which ensures it will not crack when squeezed. We can also apply specific concrete treatment on concrete surfaces to increase their resistance to chemical spills and stains.



Another characteristic that makes concrete the most sought-after is its versatility. Concrete is so flexible that you can create a variety of it. Utilizing a variety of methods and techniques the possibility of creating an attractive concrete slab using the color, texture, and design of your choice. The experts can custom design it, too.


Low Maintenance

In contrast with other construction materials concrete is easy to maintain. It doesn't require routine maintenance or care from a professional. You can easily get rid of dirt, stains and dust with basic cleaning supplies.


Poured Concrete Slab

In the case of Poured Concrete, they are slabs created by pouring concrete on the ground. We follow a method for setting up concrete on site and ensuring that we achieve significant outcomes. Concrete pouring gives us the freedom to make last-minute changes on the design and layout of the surface. It also lets us adjust the size of the construction site when required. Due to its advantages, it's the ideal option for customized concrete projects.

If there is a downside to this, it's the time and expense. Since we'll be pouring concrete slab over the site we will need additional devices and tools, including the use of a concrete mixer or a bull floating. Also, we will require an additional workforce to do the work. Therefore, the cost for installation is much more expensive. Poured concrete slabs are also lengthy. The process of curing concrete slabs on their own takes up to 21 days. We do not leave you with wet concrete. We let the slabs to cure so we can perform an assessment of quality prior to turning over the project. If you're not prepared to wait for that long then this option is ideal for you.


Precast Concrete Slab

As the name suggests, this slab type is precast. The slabs are created in a factory before being delivered straight on to construction sites. Though you can alter the size for the slab, making any adjustments or final-minute changes on the spot isn't possible. The slabs are not poured directly as precasts, precast costs less and is also less time-consuming.


Decorative Concrete Slab

Decorative concrete slabs are slabs designed with the color design, or texture of your preference. We also can customize a style for your slabs according to the design you like. This option is only available with our concrete slab services. Otherwise, it's hard to achieve the look or style you want.
