Slab Heave Monitoring - Engineers & Trade

Introducing the NEW & IMPROVED way to monitor slab heave!

  • Make better, more informed & timely decisions. 
  • Stop wasting valuable Engineer's time on minimal data capture. 
  • Work smarter - let SLABsense get you more data!

 

The Old Way

Traditional monitoring of domestic structures for slab heave or subsidence poses some serious problems:

  • It requires repeated site visits by resource stretched engineers.

  • Data is limited to only a few 'point-in-time' measurements usually taken many months apart.

  • Measurements lack additional context and useful timeline data.

  • Significant events or remedial action triggers can be missed due to irregular site visits and measurements. 

  • There's a potential conflict of interest in disputes; the party collecting the data may also be the party making recommendations or having to act on them. 

 

SLABsense Adds Value!

SLABsense compliments rather than replaces current industry standard measurements and lab test data. 

Our key point of difference is enabling the ongoing, daily monitoring of key metrics to enable tracking change and context in more detail. 

The 4 Cs of Slab Heave

Concern

Home owners can be justifiably concerned about the damage slab heave or subsidence can cause. 

Your home is your castle and also likely your biggest investment. 

Confusion

Technical terms, AUS standards, fine print warranties, multiple trades deflecting blame, obligations you didn't understand or know about. 

It's no wonder home owners are confused. 

Costs

Repairing the damage caused by slab heave can be very expensive. 

There's also the costs of engineers, legal fees and potential loss of home value to consider. 

Conflict

When emotions, liability, reputation and money are involved the blame game often kicks in.

Disputes can easily escalate to stressful tribunals & legal action.

Data Presentation

Our online dashboards present all data in an easy to use format using floor plans and trend graphs. We strongly recommend results are shared with your builder or engineer (or with you if they've engaged our services) to maximise trust and minimise conflict. 

Data Independence

SLABsense weren't involved in building your home or any decisions regarding how to fix it or who's going to pay - we just capture the data. This gives an important layer of independence and impartiality to help in disputes and where trust has broken down.
