The Purpose of a Foundation
You may be surprised to discover that foundations serve 3 purposes. As you know, our earth is constantly moving. The ground never stops vibrating and shifting. Earthquakes are indicative of more intense movements. As the earth does its thing, the foundation ensures that the structure resting on top moves in unison. Without a foundation, a building’s load would not be spread evenly. During an earthquake, the left side of your home can shift up while the right side can shift down, thereby splitting the house in 2. When structures are located on top of or on the side of a hill, foundations prevent them from leaning and and sliding down hills and mountains.

Foundation Installation Costs
It’s difficult to state with accuracy what the cost for your foundation will be. There are many factors to consider. We would have to view the area and test your soil to be certain. If the proposed building area has soft soil, we will need to remove a good portion of it and replace it with dirt that is more conducive for the project. The same can be said for porous soil. The most ideal dirt should be non-porous to prevent the slab from eroding. The scope of the project is another aspect to consider. For detailed cost information, contact us today.
Commercial and Residential Foundations
The general process for installing concrete slab foundations for commercial buildings and residences is the same. The variation lies in the scale of the project. Structures of immense size and capacity require more reinforcement. Smaller buildings necessitate the same amount of detail but the technical features are not as intricate.
