Building Foundation and Home Foundations, The Foundation Construction Process,
Concrete Footing


The main objective of traditional foundation method is to provide support to structures situated in the ground freezing areas. The structure is built such that the footing becomes wider than the wall to provide an added support at the base area of the foundation. A footing is positioned below the frost line before adding the walls on the top. The procedure involved is such that the T-shaped foundation is fixed first, followed by wall construction, and lastly pouring the slabs between the walls.

Slab-on-grade Foundation

A slab is made of a single layer of concrete, but several inches think. The reason behind the thick edges is to form stronger integral footing. The use of reinforcing rod helps to strengthen the edge of the slabs. Once the concretes are ready, they are placed on crushed gravel to enhance its drainage. Consequently, the mesh wire cast in concrete helps to prevent easy cracking. Although a slab on grade is susceptible to cracking on freezing grounds, insulation can be adapted to prevent frost heaves from affecting it.

This applies in the following conditions:

  • The slab-on-grade is monolithic
  • The slab-on-grade has thicker edges than the interior of the slab
