Slabs are the most common type of foundation for homes these days, and for good reason as they’re strong and can also be used as a flooring surface or substrate. Read on to find out exactly why house slabs are so popular.
Concrete is used to pour house slabs as it is a strong material, even stronger when it is reinforced; it does not require a lot of maintenance; it is completely insect proof; and you can use the surface of the slab as flooring or to lay your flooring directly on top of it.
The exact type of house slab that is built will depend on the size of the building, the building materials that you are using, and the condition of the soil. Some types of house slabs that can be built include footing slabs, stiffened raft slabs, waffle raft slabs, or pile and slab. Each one is suitable for a different situation.
House slabs are built on sites that are perfectly level so your builder needs to make sure that this happens before any construction on your slab begins. Slabs are poured by specialist concretors that are contracted by your builder. Due to the importance of a well poured slab, ensure that only highly qualified and experienced professionals are used.
