What makes a good concrete slab?
- Smart slab design. Propper planning and design details such slab thickness, reinforcement, formwork and finishing must be adapted to accommodate site conditions and to intended use requirements.
- High-quality concrete. Specific details such as strength, slump, curing time, and resistance to freezing are very important to consider when mixing project specific concrete. When the project site conditions and end use are effectively communicated to the concrete supplier from you contractor, they can vary the ratio of mix ingredients and utilizing different additives to formulate the best concrete for your project.
- Top notch craftsmanship. From site excavation and form construction, to pouring, finishing and final site cleanup, it really makes a difference when skilled people are performing the work. We take pride in the high level of craftsmanship that goes into every one of our concrete slab projects.
Frequently Asked Questions about Concrete Slabs
The industry standard concrete floor slab thickness in residential construction is 4 inches. Five to six inches is recommended if the concrete will receive occasional heavy loads, such as RVs or tractors.
Something to keep in mind is rebar isn’t necessary for every concrete project. The rule of thumb is that if your concrete slab will be more than 5 inches in depth, you will want to add in rebar to help reinforce the entire concrete structure.
