What is a footing?
The footing of your property is an important part of the foundations of the building. They play a vital role in supporting the foundation. They are particularly important in areas with soil that is difficult to manage when working on construction projects. The footing itself is almost always made out of concrete with rebar reinforcement, which is then poured into a trench that has been excavated. It is essential that the footings are constructed properly, so always work with an expert company, such as us, to ensure the complete stability and safety of your property in the long-term.
What is a foundation?
The foundation is the lowest part of the structure of your property. It distributes the weight of the building evenly to provide stability and firm footing. It will be tailored to suit the elements surrounding your property, for example the soil type and use. Incorporating several elements, it is imperative that you work with an expert like us, to ensure that this vital part of construction work has been built correctly. If incorrect, there can be serious consequences that may even result in your building needing to be demolished.
Why use concrete?
Concrete is the most common material for foundation and footing building. This is because its properties are perfectly suited for this role. Known to be strong, durable, and long-lasting, concrete will ensure that your property is set up for success. It can hold great amounts of weight without moving, as well as being impervious to damage from external factors, such as insects. It is important to know that there are different types of concrete. The correct one must be used to ensure compatibility with the surrounding area, including soil type and weight bearing capability. Our experts will assess your situation to ensure the correct concrete type is used.
