NEW HOME FOUNDATIONS
It is true that the foundation of the home is paramount to the success of the building. A properly
excavated and formed foundation can prevent water damage and structural problems due to
unlevel surface. The contractor must take into consideration the drainage from rainfall to move
away from what is being built.
The most common types of foundations are slab, crawl space and basement foundations. Each type requires different specifications for excavation.
The slab foundation serves as the home’s bottom floor and works best in climates that don’t
experience ground freezing.
The crawl space foundation has an enclosed area between the ground and the first floors, often used in colder climates.
The basement foundation adds more square footage, but is more prone to floods.
Whatever type of foundation your project requires, H & S Company will ensure your home’s foundation is excavated properly.
