Concrete Footpaths in Gatton

Concrete Footings in Gatton

There are two essential parts of building foundations during construction. The first is the soil below the foundation and the second being the type of footing or slabs supported by the soil. Footings are usually made of concrete with reinforcing bars that have been poured into an excavated trench. Footings are essential, especially in areas that have troublesome soils.

Three types of concrete foundations

Below are three common types of concrete foundations:

  1. T-shaped. This is a traditional method of foundation that supports a structure in an area of which the ground freezes. The footing will be placed below a specific frost line followed by the walls being added on top then the slab is placed. Here, the footing will be wider than the wall, which will provide extra support at the base of the created foundation.
  2. Slab-on-grade foundation. A foundation used for areas where the ground doesn't freeze. In this method, the slab will be thicker at the edges than the interior, forming an integral footing. This will then reinforce the rods, strengthening the thickened edge.
  3. Frost protected. This method is reserved only for heated structures. Here, the concrete will be poured monolithically (poured all at one time) in areas that are subject to frost. Unlike the three pours for T-shaped foundation, frost-protected method pours concrete in only one operation.
