Building a strong foundation for your structure is the most import part of a new construction project. Building on a bad foundation will cause both short term and long term problems going forward.
Lopez Concrete can design and build your structure's slab to your exact specifics. Along with foundation slabs, Lopez Concrete can also help you in the building of patios, sidewalks, garages and many other concrete structures.
A slab on grade foundation is a concrete slab that sits directly on the ground. It requires very little preparation, and these foundations tend to work well on flat surfaces.
The perimeter of the slab is usually only 2 feet deep, while the interior can be as little as 4 to 6 inches. The concrete sits on top of 4 to 6 inches of gravel. To keep moisture from negatively affecting the concrete, a 4 millimeter sheet of plastic is used as a "vapor barrier." Because it’s so simple to construct, many new homes use this method as it’s also less labor-intensive and doesn’t require as much time to design.
The major reason to choose a slab foundation is cost. It’s much cheaper to build a slab foundation. Another advantage is that there’s no crawl space under the home so there’s no chance of water sitting underneath there, rotting your floorboards or foundation.
Finally, this is a super-easy foundation to pour, so many construction companies like it.
