Building a Concrete Roof for a House

The concrete slab of our house was finally done, it was expensive but worth it because we are already going to focus on minor details of the first floor of our house.  While we still don’t know yet when we can build the second floor,  the next project we are going to do is the house flooring, installing electrical wiring and working with the new toilet.

Concrete Roof

As we both know that the cement concrete is mixture of cement, sand, pebbles or crushed rock and water place on framework, allowed to dry until  becomes hard like stone. Cement concrete attained the status of a major building material in all branches of modern construction  because of its importance.

Building a concrete house or establishment requires a building permit  so if you are looking for step by step process on how to acquire one or to get a building permit in an easy way Nicholson Wright can help you in affordable rate.

Advantages of Cement Mixer for Concrete Roofing

The pouring of cement to complete the construction of the concrete roof our house was done yesterday. My parents rented a cement mixer for ₱1,500 and hired more people to make the work easier,  according to my mother about 19 people help for completion of the slab I  am not sure yet if they paid all of them or other just help in return of free food, snacks and drinks including booze after the job.

My mother informed me they cook chicken soup in the morning, pancit for snacks and monggo beans with meat for lunch, the event was like a small fiesta and probably the male neighbors that extend their help on pouring the cement will be more happy if they received Davidoff cigars aside from free booze.

Anyway renting a mixer is convenient rather than manually mixing the cement,  it will save more days and money.

Slab and Concrete Roof Construction

Constructing the framework of slab roof is quite complicated  I thought it was easy and doesn’t need a lot of work but I was wrong. It needs a careful planning and time dedication.  Adding irons and pipes for electric line was already done and on Saturday finally they will finally pour cement to finish the constructing our concrete roof.


My mother informed me that we had extra iron bars that we could use on constructing the second floor of our house. I hope we could save and do it soon but with the current phase of my online opportunities I wonder when we can start the construction again. Business is quite slow this month.

Constructing a Concrete Roof

Our newly constructed house has no roof yet or slab because they are still building framework for it. My mother informed me that the lumber were not enough so they had one of the tree in our yard to be cut so they could finish adding the wood framework.  Just the other day they already add steel bars to the framework and in few days they will probably pour cement on the pavement.

Roof Framework

My mother told me that they need to hire more workers so pouring cement will just took one day because they will also rent a mixer rather than people doing the manual labor. I hope it could be done soon so our next project is house flooring and adding electricity line to the house.

­Concrete roof is exactly what it sounds like, it is a solid slab of concrete capping the top of your house. Exact specifications vary, but most concrete roofs are several inches thick.

Creating a Framework for Slab

As what I thought our house was already with slab or roof last week but it turns out they are still constructing the frame for slab. My mother says they bought sets of lumbers and steel bars already, bags of cement will follow once the framing was done. I am bit excited because if our new house has already a roof my family can move in to our new house.

Slab Framework

Hoping that I will get more opportunities in the next few months so I could help to improve our house more when the slab construction was done, like adding windows, doors and tiles.
