Foundations and Footings


It’s a known fact building structures require lots of planning, from the need to get a preferred location, recruiting the help of a draughtsman, concomitantly setting aside the required funds to reviewing plans, and getting the best hands for the job. No one would love to go through this process without hoping to get the best value for money. Another important part of a building is your choice in the make-up of your foundation and it’s a given that one of the best choices remains the good old concrete.

Importance of a concrete foundation and footings

Wherever the word concrete is mentioned, the word long-lasting comes to mind. A lot goes into the makeup of foundations, from the choice of sand or stone to the amount of water required, the system and technique used, leveling the ground, and many more before it can be said that the structure is set in stone. 

Many problems occur in the few years after the foundation of a building has been constructed, from water damage coming from plumbing problems to mold and mildew, not to neglect structural damage from foundation walls collapsing and in turn, causing great harm. Most times, these problems can be avoided seeing as a foundation precedes every requirement of a sturdy building and if it’s done right, you need not worry about any factor that can possibly trigger a chain of events causing expensive damages.

The benefit of concrete foundation and footings 

In terms of quality-related concrete, solid concrete works start at the origin of the project while indicating suitable qualities needed to help the design, solid blend plan fixings, and the need to determine work that is constructible but all in all concrete is sure to remain a good and fixed fix. 

1. Resistance. 

Any structure built in concrete is built to last. The mettle concrete has exhibited against factors such as erosion, weathering, and other natural disasters over the years coupled with its little or no need for a revisit successfully ticks boxes in a list of what is considered a solid investment. 

2. Cost-Effectiveness 

Another perk of concrete structures is the fact that concrete placed by side with its alternative counterparts, in the long run, wins the race of value for money.

3. Safety 

Concrete does not burn. As simple as it looks, this is a huge factor in a world where everything is going unpredictably trendy and electrical. Concrete does not rot or feed mildew, it is composed of chemically inactive materials which make its ability to react with surrounding variables next to impossible and when constructed with materials of superior quality, the entry of pollen and airborne pollutants becomes prevented. Nothing speaks trust more than concrete to a layman in the field of engineering and building. It’s been around for ages and well-refined over time unlike recent systems capable of posing risks to health and safety. In the advent of climatic unpredictability, it won’t hurt to add an extra layer of protection against anxiety, natural disasters, and temperature swings.
