Concrete Foundation Experts

Choosing the foundation that your house is built on, may have major ramifications for the structural integrity of your home. A slab foundation is normally placed after the area is cleared of earthworks (e.g. plants, weeds, shrubs) and the plumbing pre-lay is completed. Once these steps are completed we can then pour your footings and floor slab. The slab foundation is made up of concrete and typically 150mm thick in the centre. The footings and slab involve using a concrete pump to direct the concrete into position. This process ensures the waterproof membrane and reinforcement isn’t damaged.

"I think it was Anton’s eye for detail and ability too explain step by step what was involved in the entire process from excavation to concrete pouring and finishing, that made us go with him. He communicated very clearly each stage of work and executed the work not only at an excellent standard but on time as well. Great Job!"
