Footings, Slabs and Foundations
As all builders and most owners already know, it is imperative that the weight of a structure be properly distributed and transferred, eventually amid the ground, to ensure balance, consistency, and a crack-free project. At Mustin Concrete, our experienced staff of concrete professionals does not take this fact lightly. A A telephone call to us (706-306-9008) is a solid first step in planning and implementing the installation of concrete footings, slabs, and concrete foundations. We want to help, and form a win-win relationship with you and your family or company.
There are several commonly used types of concrete footings, including the mat-slab, spread, and slab-on-grade types. We match footings with needs, which depend entirely upon your individual circumstances, and whether your structure is to be residential, commercial, with or without a basement, the depth of the foundation, surface texture, lateral capacities, and the desired weight-distribution pattern. Your project must remain firm, your walls straight, and there must be as little unexpected shifting as possible over the course of time. Concrete footings are important. No, footings are extremely important.
Obviously, concrete slabs are carefully poured and laid to suit a specific foundational purpose. Whether we are talking about a basement floor, base for an air-conditioning unit or generator, or anything else, slabs are important features. They serve to support weight in many instances. Slabs also sometimes involve the use of aggregate layers, even meshing, given their functions. You give us the facts, and we’ll provide the concrete slab or slabs you need.
Concrete foundations? Just exactly what is a concrete foundation? As the connotation implies, a foundation is a base. It doesn’t take an engineer to understand the importance and value of a solid base. Carpenters certainly know, as do building contractors.
Jesus Christ notes, in the Bible, the importance of building upon a sturdy, sound base, as opposed to sand alone. (He used the physical fact to teach an eternal truth.) Shifting is a bad thing. The weight of everything eventually passes onto and partially through the foundational base of a structure. You see, bottoms control tops.
A firm concrete foundation determines the stability of any and every structure, whether on a day to day basis, or during atrocious weather. Countless future headaches are easily avoided by laying the right base at the start. Like with our decorative concrete products and decorative concrete installations, we take pride in our more functional and structural services as well. No one wants cracks or breaks to show-up anytime, particularly when a carefully laid concrete foundation can prevent them in most cases. Concrete installation is our business and our livelihood. Give us a try, and you will be glad that you did.
We also invite you to examine our website information and ask any questions you might have about driveways, Decorative Concrete Pool Decks, or concrete patios. Thank you for your interest in our company and the products and services we provide.
