Concrete House Slabs
For a ground slab, the form-work may consist only of sidewalls pushed into the ground. For a suspended slab, the form-work is shaped like a tray, often supported by a temporary scaffold until the concrete sets.
At Hume & Sons Concreting we can pour conventional house slabs or waffle house slabs. There is only one advantage of waffle pod slab construction – reduced cost. The waffle pod slab is no more than a slab of concrete placed on the ground, with polystyrene blocks in a grid pattern within. This results in a system consisting of a slab with a grid of stiffening and edge beams, giving the (reverse) effect of a ‘waffle’ if viewed from underneath.
Some engineers argue that the waffle pod slab is stronger due to less shrinkage stresses and fewer cracks in a waffle slab but a conventional slab is less likely to crack if it is overloaded.
