Concrete slab on grade
The first type of concrete foundation slabs to consider is concrete slab on grade. This type of foundation involved a single layer of concrete is placed, grade refers to ground. This is the perfect solution for areas where the ground does not freeze. There are measures that can be taken to ensure that freezing does not happen, however. The process of slab on grade also requires that the edges are made thicker than the interior and the concrete is poured all at once. If you are unsure what the best concrete foundation is for your home, get in touch with us and we will be happy to guide you.
Another option to consider for your foundation requirements is the frost-protected foundation. It is poured in the same way that concrete slab on grade is poured, but with the added benefit of total protection against frost. This type of foundation only works however with a heated structure and relies on polystyrene insulation on both sides, which is how this type of foundation is able to prevent frost damage. If you require more information on this type of structured concrete foundation, feel free to contact us on our many platforms, and we will set up a meeting with you to discuss your full requirements.
The third foundation type that we offer our new and existing clients is the T-shaped foundation. This is a very traditional foundation method that can be used where the ground freezes. This process is executed through three stages, the first is the adding of a footing below the frost line, and then we add walls above. The T shape foundation is first placed and left to cure, and then the walls are created, and then finally the slab gets poured between the walls that were created. If you are not sure which concrete foundation will work best for your needs, allow one of our expert concrete consultants to get in touch with you, and let us help create a durable, reliable, and long-lasting foundation for your home.
