Concrete Slab Construction
Concrete slabs are usually the most important of your construction project and they require a little more thought than just pouring concrete. In Ottawa we have to deal with freezing weather which requires the concrete slabs to be constructed a little differently than in a much warmer climate. A concrete slab that is not constructed properly can sink or settle which leads to cracks in the slab, walls pulling away and separating from the ceiling, and have other issues that are costly to repair. Your concrete slab is the foundation of your construction project so it’s important that it’s built right the first time.

What Will You Be Using The Concrete Slab For?
Depending on what you need the concrete slab for we can adjust the thickness of the slab to support whatever surcharge you’ll be putting on top of the concrete. If you’re building a shop and plan on working on trucks or heavy equipment you’ll need a thicker, more reinforced slab than someone who is looking to have a simple garage built. During our initial consultation we’re going to ask you several questions about what you plan on putting on top of the concrete slab and what it will be used for so we can determine the type, thickness, and size of the slab you’re going to need. This helps us put together a proper estimate for you and helps us with the permitting process as well.
