When attempting to build a new building or prepare for one, one of the biggest steps that must be taken before the base can even be completed is to clear and excavate the area and stabilize a foundation. The foundation is what holds the new building in place securely, mounting it against weather, storms, and all other elements that have the potential to tear it down, causing it shift, tilt, or cave in over time. However, building a strong foundation requires prepping the land beforehand by removing large pieces of debris or materials that could hinder the building of an even foundation. This includes boulders, old building materials, foundation debris, and much more.
Your foundation is what holds your new building in place, enabling it to support weight and stories within it. When your foundation is not stable or secure, your building runs the risk of succumbing to elemental or weathering damage over time and can be extremely dangerous to live or conduct business in. When your foundation begins to shift or move over time, it’ll also affect other elements in your home such as your flooring, backyard space, and walls. You might begin to notice more cracks, creaking, or poor insulation from leaks and holes that have developed from an unbalanced foundation. To avoid this, it’s best to have your foundation inspected by a professional from time to time and repaired when needed.
Excavation is the process of digging and removing heavy items that can block or hinder the balance of a secure foundation. These items often include large boulders or other building debris from leftover foundations that have since been torn down or deteriorated. In order to excavate properly, this process requires the skill and usage of heavy duty construction tools and materials, as well as knowledgeable planning to ensure that all materials are removed from the worksite that could compromise the building of a strong and secure foundation.
In order to prepare a new building for proper construction, the foundation must be designed and the land must be excavated before the building can begin. Without the two, your foundation and new building are likely to have far fewer safety standards than what you might expect from a secure building. This also means that your building is more susceptible to damage from storms or can simply begin to deteriorate over time with age. Not only is the preparation part of the building process crucial to a lasting building, but it can also be costlier and more stressful to repair poor foundations in the future that hadn't been planned as well as they could've been.
Finally, your safety is important to us and we put it at the forefront of all the work that we do when it comes to preparing and setting your foundation for a new building. This means that you’re getting a foundation that’s been settled and built onto adequately excavated land that doesn’t contain materials which could later compromise the integrity of your foundation and lead to unrepairable or costly damages. We also offer architectural concrete service.
