Talking about safety, let’s talk about yours and your house! Like everyone knows, the base, or foundation, is a really important part to build a house (probably the most important): It makes your house solid and safe. At Action Concrete Pumping, we can make Concrete Foundations in Kamloops and the surrounding areas!
There are different concrete foundations we can make depending on the ground:
- T-Shaped: This concrete foundation support structures in areas where the ground freezes.
We put a footing below that is wider than the foundation, to make a T-shaped foundation, providing an extra support at the base.
- Slab-on-grade Foundation: A slab, meaning a layer of concrete, is poured thicker at the edges, to form an integral footing, and rests on a crushed gravel to improve drainage. This concrete foundation works if the ground doesn’t freeze.
- Frost Protected: This type of foundation will work only with a heated structure. Using two sheets of polystyrene insulation, it prevents freezing. The insulation holds heat from the structure in the ground under the footings. The concrete for the foundation is poured once comparing to the
T-shaped (3 pours).
In any case, be really cautious about choosing the right concrete foundation for your house, depending on where you live and the type of ground, in Kamloops or the surrounding areas.
