Benefits of Using Concrete Slabs for Houses and Sheds
Concrete slabs are generally the foundation of other structures. We therefore place much focus on the resilience and integrity of the slabs during its production.
Concrete slabs can offer many benefits for houses and sheds.
If reinforcement, as well as the concrete slab itself, and is placed correctly, cracking will be prevented and slabs will have an unlimited life span. This includes correct construction scheduling of the concrete to reach enough design strength before putting significant pressure on it, having a properly prepared foundation, the right amount of water content, treating concrete slab edges and appropriate curing in the first 3 to 7 days.
We design and create all concrete slabs for houses and sheds in accordance with the Australian Standards.
2. Natural ventilation
If designed correctly, they will have a natural ventilation. This is particularly important for slabs on the upper storeys of houses where warm air rises.
3. Environmental comfort
Concrete slabs have a high amount of thermal mass, which is able to regulate indoor comfort by absorbing or radiating a heating or cooling effect on the body, depending on the climate.
4. Reduced sound
Concrete slabs are great at helping to reduce loud airborne sounds, such as music or conversation, in homes. We say ‘airborne’ specifically, because sometimes sounds may still seep through floors; for example, the sound of shoes tapping on tiled floors above you can be heard in the room below. These are impact sounds which, if considered by your contractor, can be concealed with an ‘acoustic barrier’ in the ceiling.
The aggregate that exists in the slab can be exposed to produce an aesthetic design effect in the concrete slab. Many finishes, patterns and colours can also be applied to the slabs to create aesthetically appealing visual effects that do not affect the slab’s thermal performance.
Concrete slabs provide great resilience for houses and sheds against natural disasters, such as cyclones. Here, the slabs provide a strong anchor against extreme wind loads. Compacted concrete - done by vibrating the concrete - creates an even stronger concrete as air entrapped in the concrete is reduced and therefore able to resist cracking.
7. Environmentally sustainable
There are many new concrete on the market that offers a solution which reduces greenhouse gases by absorbing carbon dioxide. However, not all concrete contractors utilise high-quality and environmentally-friendly concreting materials.
