Foundation work by Contractor's Solutions, Philadelphia, Main Line - building and foundation work, concrete, block, coatings and repairs.|
All buildings have weight or apply a force to the ground when they are placed on it. |
The job of the foundation is to ensure that the building does not sink into the ground, and to give the building or structure
a stable platform to sit on.
Building begins with a good Foundation.... Call us about it first.

Pile Foundations: A pile is a column that transfers the load of the building to the soil. A beam is placed under each
load-bearing wall and the ends of the beam are then supported on piles. Piles can be made from steel, pressure-treated wood or concrete.
Such foundations are useful for either very "heavy" buildings, or in regions where the top soil is unstable, prone to erosion
etc. The pile is dug into the earth until a stable soil layer or rock formation is reached. Another application is in places where
spread footings are impossible to construct due to topography (like very steep sloping sites). In such situations, piles are the only
Continuous or Spread Footings: As the name suggests, these foundations are constructed along the entire length of the
wall. The width of the footing is more than that of the wall. Hence, the load of the structure is "spread" over a large area.
Spread footings are made of concrete. They are placed below the frost line (where applicable). Reinforcement steel is used to give
strength to concrete in tension. A variation to the spread footing is the Step Footing. This is made by creating a stepped pyramid of
brick layers over a large concrete pad. Step footings are common in many parts of the world.
Foundation Walls: Generally seen in accessible basements, foundation walls transfer the load of the building to the foundation.
Such walls are usually made of poured concrete, but more commonly, of hollow concrete blocks. Sometimes brick and stone is also used.
The concrete walls are reinforced with steel against the tensile stresses generated due to the top loading (of the structure above)
and the push of the surrounding earth. When steel is used in hollow concrete blocks, concrete must be poured to hold the steel in place.
Exterior foundation waterproofing coatings. environmentally friendly waterproofing products for the exterior and interior foundation
that are easy to apply and save the contractor or homeowner time and money. Whether you are building or renovating. Cost effective
products that cure to form a flexible rubber membrane that will provide long lasting protection. These products don’t require

To prevent this sinking, the soil is required to provide an upward pressure equivalent to the
downward pressure from the building. The foundation will spread the load over the soil. As simple as it seems, the pressures must be
equal or less or the building will sink.|
