If you are spending a lot of time and money choosing a garden structure like a shed, summerhouse or garden office, you need your investment to be kept on a secure, level and non-damp rising base. Don’t forget what the structure is sitting on!
We install and repair concrete bases. We have completed numerous domestic and commercial contracts in bases for sheds, garages and garden offices. We can build a base to most specifications. If you know the size and type of base you would like, then please email us the size, use and a picture of the area for an approximate cost of works.
There are 2 main ways we can reinforce the concrete base, by using metal mesh, known as reinforcement grids and by adding fibres into the concrete mix. Reinforcement in concrete is used to ensure that the cracking which can occur does not threaten the structural integrity of the concrete base itself.
The standard concrete bases have the area levelled, formwork created and concrete poured to 95mm. This is more than adequate for most sheds and summer houses. For a Garden Office concrete base we level the area, formwork created, sub base stone laid and compacted and concrete poured to 95mm. This higher spec offers greater longevity and stability to protect your investment. We also do Slab bases which have site levelled and slabs lay on mortar bed. Dry grout is brushed in for a neat finish.
We provide a comprehensive concrete repair service to our customers. We investigate survey and diagnose the structural defects of the concrete base and advise on the long term solutions available. Concrete is constantly being attacked by the elements and contaminants in the environment and needs to be restored to prevent major structural defects occurring. This maybe using a repair screening mix, skimming the entire base, or putting in Control joints which allow for movements caused by temperature changes and drying shrinkage. In other words, if the concrete does crack-you want to have an active role in deciding where it will crack and that it will crack in a straight line instead of randomly. If all else fails, let us put in a new base for you.
