The foundation is a very responsible and technologically difficult stage of building a house.
Most customers do not understand the importance of the foundation and try to save on it. In our company, prices for foundations are slightly higher than those of competitors, but this is due to the high quality of work and adherence to technology.
Sometimes customers involve third-party organizations for the construction of the foundation or do this work on their own. Very often, such foundations have deviations not for the better, not to mention how the work is done which is not visible from the outside.
We often face a situation when, due to a violation of technology, and as a result of alterations, the price of the foundation increases by 30-80%. As a result, the foundation is more expensive, but of lower quality.
We do not insist on ordering a foundation from our company. But if you still decide to make the foundation on your own, then we ask you to comply with the standards for performing these works, because:
You are building a house not for one year, but for many years;
the destruction of the foundation does not begin immediately, but after a few years.
Here are the standards we ask you to track:
Concrete grade not lower than M-300 (B22.5). It is better to buy concrete from large companies.
Never weld fittings.
There should be no vertical rods, the reinforcement should be tied in a circle.
The reinforcement should not touch the ground, sand or formwork.
The entire volume of concrete is poured in one go.
Be sure to apply vibration shrinkage.
And most importantly, remember after pouring, it is no longer visible what was dug out and how the reinforcement was connected. It is not difficult to replace windows and a roof, but the foundation is very.
