For the construction of slab or monolithic foundation can be used reinforced concrete slab. Such a slab is installed along the full perimeter of the future structure and, thanks to a depth not less than one meter from the ground surface, it is called floating. The simplicity and integrity of the design ensures high reliability of slab foundations, which allows them to be used in the construction of any types of structures, regardless of the characteristics of the soil in the place chosen for construction.
Neither weather conditions, nor ground deformation, nor groundwater impact are afraid of this type of foundation. Thanks to these characteristics, slab foundation for the home is an example of the best possible solution, despite some drawbacks.
Pros and cons of slab foundation
The goal to build a sustainable building, durable and not subject to the influence of groundwater, located even a meter below the surface, is achieved in several ways. (more…)
