Concrete slab edge deterioration, around Brisbane

Deterioration to concrete slab. Identified by Peter Weddell, owner/operator of Qld Home Buyers Inspection Service and Queensland Building Inspection Service, QBIS.

  • Heavy pitting has also occured to the slab surface most likely caused by type of soil in the area.
  • The plastic membrane is not likely to have been wrapped around edge of the slab far enough, within the wall cavity.

This is a problem I often come across, in new buildings.
