San Diego Concrete Foundation
There are three main types of concrete foundation: slab-on-grade, T-shaped, and frost-protected. San Diego Concrete Company knows precisely how to build and what type to use for your home or commercial building.
Types of Concrete Foundation
This type of concrete foundation is the most common and least expensive to build. It is subject to the effects of the changing seasons; the walls stop below the frost line, which means it can be damaged if the water in the soil freezes and expands.
This is the most common type of concrete foundation used in homes; it involves placing a solid, continuous concrete base over the ground. The slab is usually made with post-tension tendons because it can help make the finished floor stronger and able to support more weight.
This type of concrete foundation has one wall that runs along the width of the home and another wall that runs perpendicular on top of it. The horizontal section is typically made with post-tension tendons, while the vertical section can be either slab-on-grade or frost-protected.
Most homes use standard concrete foundations, which are subject to the effects of the changing seasons. When it’s cold outside, water in the soil can freeze and cause damage that can be very expensive to fix. A frost-protected foundation has walls that extend below the ground into the soil; this helps prevent frost damage. A frost-protected concrete foundation is not normally requested among San Diego County new home builders for obvious reasons.
