    What are concrete slabs, and what are they used for

    Concrete slabs are a type of construction material, typically made from concrete, that is used in the construction of floors and ceilings. Other application areas for concrete slabs are; patios, countertops, driveways, sidewalks, and garage floors.
    The properties of concrete slabs will differ depending on the purpose of the slab. For example, a concrete slab used for a driveway will have different properties than a concrete slab used for a garage floor. The type of aggregate (gravel, sand, etc.), the amount of water used in the mix, and the curing time contribute to the finished product’s strength and durability.

    The different types of concrete slabs

    Concrete slabs can be either pre-cast or cast-in-place. Pre-cast concrete slabs are made at a factory and then transported to the job site. Cast-in-place concrete slabs are made on-site using a mould.
    Pre-cast concrete slabs are mainly used for commercial projects because they are faster and easier to install. Cast-in-place concrete slabs are mainly used for residential projects because they offer more flexibility in design.
    Pre-cast concrete slabs are recommended for use in areas with high traffic while cast-in-place concrete slabs are recommended for use in areas with low traffic.

    How to install a concrete slabs

    Installation of a concrete slab will typically involve the following;
    i). excavation of the area where the slab will be placed
    ii) installation of a gravel base
    iii) placement of the concrete forms
    iv) pouring of the concrete
    v) levelling and troweling of the concrete surface
    vi) curing of the concrete slab.
    Preparation will also be needed to ensure that the area where the slab will be placed is free of debris and vegetation. The ground should also be level.
    If you are installing a concrete slab on your own, follow these steps carefully to ensure a successful project.
