When we plan the construction of a house and make a budget for it, every detail counts. ALL! And there are so many…
Choices, options, functions, prices, performances, diameters, lengths, resistances. The foundations, the structure, the roof, the insulation, the plumbing in general, the air conditioning systems, the finishes, one by one. Techniques and more techniques, materials that never seem to end. Construction is not a world; It is a universe!
Anyone who enters this universe for the first time feels they have entered a parallel reality. We at homify know how easy it is to feel overwhelmed by the amount of information or the lack thereof. Sometimes, even the instructions architects and engineers give seem to be spoken in a strange code we do not understand.
Obviously, the best solution will always be to listen to the professional in charge of the project, as there are no correct choices but correct options for each situation and certain calculations. However, it is still essential to know what they are talking about!
That’s why we make a point of addressing some of these aspects in more detail, with the simplicity of someone looking for information from a perspective of total ignorance.
In this context, today, we are talking about lightened slabs, an option many are unaware of but which can represent a saving in the budget of the house’s structure. We do not intend to write a technical, professional, and exhaustive article, nor is this within our scope of action. We just want to throw some light on another thorny construction subject, and for that, we used some images (purely illustrative) from our professionals. Follow us!
