At Midbrook Buildings we can offer you more than just a building, we are happy to quote on a nationwide basis for the construction of a concrete slab. The purchase of the concrete slab is as important as your building. You could purchase the most wonderful building in the world but if the concrete slab is inadequate it will be a complete waste of money.
In the majority of cases a concrete base should be constructed on a solid sub base of compacted type 1 roadstone, have a damp proof membrane and a GEN3 concrete approximately 100mm (4”) thick, dependent on site conditions. For the floor finish, we offer a light tampered finish, a smooth trowel finish or a power floated finish. We also offer a range of concrete sealants and concrete floor paints to limit the amount of dust once the building is in use. We would ideally recommend if possible that the concrete slab is made slightly higher than the surrounding ground, so that water cannot settle on the bottom of the garage wall panels.
