Our concrete services are based around care and attention to detail. A quality focus is given to every slab that we pour. This starts with the site preparation, after discussing your needs to understand the correct outcome.
Its then all about the formwork before pouring the slab. It’s obviously important for concrete to harden in the desired shape. Formwork is the temporary or permanent support structure or mould into which concrete is poured. It is also known as centering or shuttering. It not only creates the desired shape, but also ensures the slab gains strength and durability.
It is important to us at Contour Concreting that every house slab is poured with precision.
We focus on attention to detail and finishing the job with care. This also ensures that on completion of the job, your site or home block is left neat and clean. You rightly expect to be impressed with the finished product. And we are just as keen to make sure your slab meets those expectations.
If you are not satisfied with the results, and that’s uncommon, we stand behind our service and reputation to get things resolved.
Concrete slab options
Concrete slabs are required for the construction of new homes, sheds, garages and for mounting large aircon units and pool pumps. The type of slab can vary and may depend on the results of a soil test.
Below are a few examples :
- Ground slab is the simplest type and is made by digging trenches around the footprint of the construction and filling with concrete to form a stiffening beam. Moisture and termite protection, drainage and electrical conduits are positioned before placing down steel reinforcements and then pouring the concrete to create the slab.
- Hollow-core slab has voids or cores running through the slab unit. The cores play a significant role in significantly reducing the self-weight of the slab. They also help maintain the required strength and maximize structural efficiency.
- Waffle Slab is popular where soil classification allows. Construction of waffle slabs involves shuttering, laying pods placing reinforcement between pods and mesh above the pods then finally casting concrete.
