How to Build a Concrete Sleeper

May 7, 2021

If you have decided to use a concrete sleeper, you will need to decide whether you would like it to be the only bed in your new construction. If so, then you should ensure that you make the best possible construction use of this material. It can be constructed quite easily and you can usually get good quality concrete sleepers quite cheaply. If however, you require a second bed then you may need to find another type of material or you should consider looking into the use of prefabricated concrete slabs.



One of the most important things to consider when looking at the use of a concrete sleeper is to ensure that it has been built using quality materials. You want your concrete sleeper to be strong and you also want it to last for many years to come. As well as using quality materials you should also look at the way the concrete has been constructed. By having the concrete sleeper constructed by a reputable construction company you can be guaranteed that the quality of the materials used will be of the highest standard. This is why it is so important to build your construction to strict quality specifications.


In addition to the quality of the concrete sleeper you also need to ensure that it is well insulated. The best way of insulating concrete is with concrete wool insulation which can be applied to the concrete while it is being formed. Once it has hardened, it can then be placed over the exterior concrete before you apply any type of waterproofing or other coating. This is also a great way of making sure that your concrete sleeper is properly waterproof.
