What is a concrete slab?
A concrete slab refers to a well-known structural element constructed out of cast concrete. It's a flat horizontal concrete surface commonly used as a floor or a roof. For long-lasting and durable of use, contractors may add the wire mesh that is welded or reinforced steel bars to a concrete slab that has been reinforced.
While it's also important to get an expert calculate and give accurate measurements. A proper thickness will impact the strength of the slab as well as the whole structure. The slab's thickness varies depending on the type of project. For example, in residential flooring, 4 inches is the most common thickness. Experts recommend five to six inches of thickness when building that are regularly subject to heavy loads.
Benefits of Concrete Slabs
Concrete slabs are one of the most popular construction materials. Over the years, builders have utilized it to construct various construction structures. It's a typical choice to construct foundations and various development projects. Unlike other construction materials, concrete has so many advantages. Concrete's advantages include:

There may not be a more sturdy construction material than concrete. A proper maintenance and care makes concrete structures last for a long time. Some concrete structures can even last a lifetime. Good reinforcement also increases the life of and the strength of concrete slabs. Concrete can be compacted to ensure that we do not have any gaps or porous areas within the slab of concrete. So, we can reduce the risk of cracks, and other damage.
Excellent Thermal Mass
Concrete has a high thermal mass, which refers to its capacity to regulate the flow of heat energy. Because of its large thermal mass, it's able to maintain indoor comfort and lessen or increase indoor temperatures through taking in natural heat. Materials with great thermal mass are beneficial in locations with extreme day and night temperatures.
Concrete is a material with many advantages, among them its resistance various elements. For instance, it is devoid of organic matter. Therefore, it does not suffer from rotting or the formation of rust due to excessive heat. Furthermore, it is the highest compressive strength that means it will not break when squeezed. We also can apply concrete treatments to concrete surfaces so that they are more resistant to chemical staining and spills.
Another characteristic that makes concrete popular is its versatility. Concrete is a material that is flexible enough that you can create a variety of it. Using different methods and applications the possibility of creating concrete slabs with the color, texture and pattern of your preference. You can have experts custom-design it, too.

Poured Concrete Slab
These are created by pouring concrete on the site. The process we follow is placing concrete on the ground so that we can guarantee substantial outcomes. Concrete is poured gives us the flexibility to make last-minute tweaks to the layout of the surface. Also, it allows us to modify the size of the project on site if required. Its advantages mean that it's the ideal option for projects made of concrete that are custom-designed.
If there's a drawback to this, it's time and cost. As we pour a concrete slab onto the site, we need more equipment and tools, for example, an concrete mixer as well as a bull float. We will also need additional workers to finish the work. The installation cost is much higher. Concrete slabs that are poured are lengthy. Curing concrete slabs by itself lasts up to 21 days. We don't leave you with wet concrete. We allow the slabs to set so we can conduct some quality checks before turning over the project. If you're unable to wait that long, we'd recommend this for you.
Precast Concrete Slab
The name implies that this type of slab is precast. The slabs are manufactured in a plant and shipped directly for the build site. While you are able to customize the dimensions of the slabbut making adjustments or last-minute changes onsite is impossible. In contrast to slabs that are poured directly that are precast, it costs less and requires less time.
