Which Foundation Type Is Right for Your Project?
From our decades of experience, we’ve seen proof positive that poured concrete is the ideal building material for foundations. This type of foundation is many times stronger than concrete block. It resists water better and offers greater protection against fire. For solid, durable, and low-maintenance building projects, choose poured concrete as the base.
There are two main types of foundations we work with. Here, we detail the merits of each:
- Slab-on-Grade Foundation—We pour a concrete slab several inches thick over a bed of crushed gravel. The slab is thicker at the edges to form the footing. Our crews use reinforced rods to strengthen the edges. We adapt this type of construction to areas where the ground freezes by using insulation.
- T-Shaped Foundation—This traditional form of foundation is designed with below-freezing temperatures in mind. We place the footing deeper than the frost line with the walls on top. The T-shape results from pouring the footing wider than the wall for extra support. With this foundation, we pour the slab last.

From Underpinning to Walls & Overlays
Concrete is an essential building material for most any type of construction. From foundations to walls to fireplaces, we pour concrete to create stability and longevity. Our craftsmen can strengthen a foundation with underpinning or provide you with concrete room additions. Another area where concrete excels is in walls of all types, such as:
- Tall Walls
- Retaining Walls
- Form-Lined Walls
- Landscape Decorative Walls
- Board-Formed Walls
Concrete also stands out in decorative applications, such as vertical concrete overlays to enhance the appearance of existing walls. Rely on our contractors for your concrete construction project.
