Types of Concrete Foundations

Since the type of concrete foundation you choose plays a role in the cost of your project, it’s a good idea to consider your options. These include:

  • Slab-on-Grade Foundation — This setup entails pouring the concrete foundation slab directly into the ground. Workers make the edges of the slab significantly thicker to serve as a solid support base for the structure. The slab-on-grade foundation is ideal in locations with dry and warm climates. What’s great about this option is that it’s affordable and extremely stable. It’s also less susceptible to certain types of environmental damage, including termite infestation.
  • Raft Foundation — This foundation employs a base slab that supports the weight of the entire dwelling. It’s suitable for sites that have a poor-quality soil, along with areas with unknown sub-soil water issues, as the concrete mat is easy to waterproof.
  • T-Shaped Foundation — This setup has spread footing foundations, which are wider at their bases. It provides more stability and helps allocate the weight of the foundation wall more effectively. T-shaped foundations are ideal for use in cold areas and regions where the soil is likely to freeze during winter. They’re also suitable for homes and commercial establishments where the condition of the soil is in the moderate-to-good range.
