Concrete Foundations

Concrete foundations

BedRock Siteworks brings your site to a level grade. Concrete is strong, durable, and is the best solution for horse barns, pole barns, garages, cabins, and sun porches. The type of foundation that’s best for your situation depends on the type of building that you’re installing. We work with you to determine which of the concrete foundation options best meets your budget and is best for the characteristics of your site. For sloped area’s a retaining wall may be needed to extend the level area.

There are four types of concrete foundations: the Gibraltar, concrete pillars, floating slab, and graduated slab. Feel free to contact us for guidance through the process regarding specific detail’s on which foundation may be best for your situation.

The Gibraltar Concrete Foundation

Gibraltar concrete foundation used for a garage.

Firstly, we excavate the site. Then we build a trench 24” wide X 36” deep that goes below the frost line. Then afterwards a 24” x 8″ depth footer (3500 psi concrete pour) reinforced with #4 rebar is added. Cement walls are poured, that are 8″ x 8″ x 16″ cement block and mortar built up to 6″ above grade. An 4″ gravel base for drainage, vapor barrier to eliminate moisture and a #4 rebar is dialed into the cement wall for maximum strength.Lastly a 4″ concrete slab 3500-4000 psi is poured and finished.

Concrete Pillars

Concrete pillars
Concrete pillars used to anchor a structure like a pole barn.

Firstly we Excavate the site, then holes are dug 32″ to 36″ deep, by 16″ to 24″ diameter and Sona tube forms are placed into hole. Afterwards #4 rebar is inserted into forms and there is a 3500-4000 psi concrete pour. Metal strapping is added to finish off the pour and solidify the product.

Some townships require horse barns to rest on concrete pillars.
