Residential Concrete Applications

When it comes to completing structural projects in and around a residential property, it is essential that the appropriate Concrete mix is selected for the job in hand, as this will likely determine the success or failure of the development.

Subsequently, we have comprised a quick guide below to reference some of the more common domestic Concrete projects and Concrete Application requirements.

Cavity Wall Concrete Infill

Cavity wall is constructed on a strong Concrete base. Two leaves are constructed like normal masonry, but minimum cavity must be provided in between them. The cavity may be filled with lean Concrete with some slope at the top up to few centimetres above ground level.

Concrete Base / Concrete Slab

A Concrete slab base is a common structural element of modern buildings, consisting of a flat, horizontal surface made of cast concrete. Steel-reinforced slabs, typically between 100 and 500 mm thick, are most often used to construct floors and ceilings.

Concrete Oversite

A Concrete oversite is an underlayer of concrete below a slab or other flooring; so placed to prevent disturbance of the ground below, to provide a relatively even and firm surface for the placement of the next layer, and to keep out ground air and moisture.

Concrete Footings

Footings are an important part of foundation construction. They are typically made of Concrete with rebar reinforcement that has been poured into an excavated trench. The purpose of footings is to support the foundation and prevent settling. Footings are especially important in areas with troublesome soils.

Concrete Garage Base / Concrete Shed Base

Concrete garages can weigh more than two tonnes, so a solid and durable concrete base is the ultimate foundation to keep a building stable throughout its lifetime. The base of the garage, like any building, is the most important part to create for it to successfully support the rest of the building.

Concrete Conservatory Base

When constructing foundations, they are usually created by digging a trench in the ground to the required depth and then filling with Concrete. In certain cases, steel reinforcement or piling rods will be required to strengthen the foundation. On top of the Concrete, layers of hardcore, membrane and scree make up the underfloor of the conservatory.

Concrete Driveway / Concrete Patio

Durable, attractive, long-lasting and easy to keep clean — these are the advantages of a Concrete patio. A poured Concrete patio greatly reduces gaps and cracks that can lead to weed growth and ant infestations.
