Concrete

Contrary to popular belief, concrete and cement are not the same thing; cement is actually just a component of concrete. Concrete is made up of three basic components: water, aggregate (rock, sand, or gravel) and Portland cement. Cement, usually in powder form, acts as a binding agent when mixed with water and aggregates. This combination, or concrete mix, will be poured and harden into the durable material with which we are all familiar.

 

Slabs and Concrete

There are many variations of concrete slabs depending on the purpose of the slab. Below are some useful links for understanding concrete foundations, along with the three types of concrete foundations.

 

Slab-on-grade foundation

As the name suggests, a slab is a single layer of concrete, several inches thick. The slab is poured thicker at the edges, to form an integral footing; reinforcing rods strengthen the thickened edge. The slab normally rests on a bed of crushed gravel to improve drainage. Casting a wire mesh in the concrete reduces the chance of cracking. A slab on grade is suitable in areas where the ground doesn't freeze, but it can also be adapted with insulation to prevent it from being affected by the frost heaves. (see below)

In summary:

  • Slab on grade used in areas where ground does not freeze.

  • The edges of the slab-on-grade are thicker than the interior of the slab.

  • The slab-on-grade is monolithic (poured all at one time).
