House & Shed Concrete Slabs Gold Coast
Your house site preparation is crucial. The attention given to this is the difference between a ‘passable’ slab and a great slab. We pride ourselves on producing great concrete slabs in Gold Coast for houses and sheds that will pass any inspection.
What Is a ‘Slab’?
We know you are thinking that this is a simple question. But it is more than just a thick slab of concrete sitting on the ground. A slab foundation is a layer of concrete that is typically 100mm to 150mm thick in the centre and poured directly onto a prepared surface in one pour session. The edges of the slab (up to 600mm) are thicker to allow for extra strength around the perimeter. Many foundations utilise post tension cables, while others are reinforced with steel rod reinforcement sheets. These materials are used to make the slab extremely sturdy and capable of sustaining the load bearing weight of the house or other structure that is to be constructed. The concrete slab is laid on a base suited to the earth composite and graduations so as to improve drainage conditions and minimise movement of the slab and ultimately the structure.
CONCRETE SLABS – HOUSE, GARAGE AND SHED
HIGH TRAFFIC CONCRETE AREAS NEED TO BE PERFECT THE FIRST TIME.
As the foundation of any construction, concrete slabs play an integral part of any building or renovation process. A concrete slab forms not just the foundation, but the floor of your new home, workshop, garage or shed. Therefore, the finished product needs to be suited for whatever floor coatings or coverings will be used.
To ensure trouble free durability of all concrete slabs and floors, Concrete Gold Coast work to engineer specifications in order to create a strong, well reinforced slab that will support the massive weight of your house, while taking into account the type of soil and the slope of your surrounding land.
