Monolithic or Floating Slab Foundation

One of our popular foundations is the monolithic slab also referred to as a floating slab foundation. This type of foundation is ideal for level lots or lots with a soil bearing problems. The basic idea is to pour your footings or footers (which are created where load bearing walls will be located) and the slab floor at the same time thus creating a monolithic slab.

Care needs to be taken to make sure your plumbing and electrical lines are located in the correct areas before you pour the concrete slab. Otherwise you may have to break out the jack-hammer to correct the problem.
