The Slab Solution That Protects Your Property

The slab that your home is built on provides the foundation for everything that comes afterwards; it ensure the structure remains solid over time and doesn’t threaten the integrity of your home. For this reason, it is imperative that you choose a reputable team to build your foundation.

Luckily Fairhaven Homes are experts when it comes to providing state of the art options when you’re building you home. Our slab solution is top of the range, giving you complete confidence in the short and long term strength of you home.

So how does our method differ to the usual way of doing things?

Well, to begin with, it’s the first product of its kind in Australia. We use a fully compressible expanded polystyrene void former, which separates the traditional slab from the soil beneath it. This feature creates an area where the soil beneath it can move without putting a harmful amount of pressure on the concrete slab above it. In the long term, the slab is supported by piles, giving you yet another pillar of confidence in our innovative method.

For you, this means that your home will be as structurally sound as possible as it will be built on a foundation of the utmost strength and flexibility. No matter what changes occur to the ground throughout construction or in the many years after it, you can feel confident that our slab solution will shield your home from any negative impacts. That’s why we provide a 25-year structural guarantee – because we are certain that it will see you through without a hitch!

What common issues does our slab solution help you avoid?

A decaying foundation is something you want to avoid at all costs, which is precisely why our option is the best one to choose – because at the end of the day, there’s nothing else quite like it.

There is a myriad of awful consequences resulting from a poorly installed or weak slab. From rotating wall to sunken floors and cracked bricks, the repairs are stressful, time-consuming and incredibly costly. Not only do you have to go through the arduous task of repairing the foundation itself, but all the interior, exterior and structural damages that occurs as a result of it.

So what’s the answer? Well, for our satisfied clients throughout Melbourne and Geelong, it’s our slab solution service. Make the choice today and save yourself the stress in the future.
