Stone Base Foundations

Stone and concrete base foundations

First, BedRock Siteworks brings your ground to a level grade, in some cases a retaining wall may be needed to extend or to level your site. Then choose from economy, standard, or elite foundation design which determines how the stone foundation is contained and installed.

We help you choose the best foundation design for your specific type of structure – that fits your budget – and fits your property or backyard. In most cases, it’s recommended that a wood floor structure rest’s on a stone base foundation. However, if your looking for concrete to be your floor, check out our concrete foundation options.

Another important consideration is to make sure the foundation exactly matches the shape of your building. As an example, a gazebo, a cabana, or a pavilion may be octagonal, square, or rectangular. Buildings come in many sizes and shapes, and our attention to detail guarantees your foundation is exactly the right size and shape for your structure.

We offer three options for a concrete-free stone base foundation. Economy, Standard, and Elite, the various differences in design are listed below.

Economy Stone Base Foundation

 

Economy stone base foundation.

This concrete-free foundation provides a stable stone base foundation for the least cost. An earthen berm is used to contain the drainage stone. The cheapest way to do the job, but without the 5 year guarantee, fabric, and rebar.

Standard Stone Base Foundation                                                                       

Our most popular standard containment design includes a border of 4” X 6” or 6” X 6” pressure-treated wood secured with ½” X 24” steel rebar. This border keeps the stone in place and creates a distinct perimeter around the structure. Geotextile fabric is placed within the border to stabilize the stone base and also to prevent weed growth. Six inches of certified drain stone insures quick drainage and a dry floor. This foundation also comes with a 5 year guarantee for any settling or drainage issues.

Elite Stone Base Foundation

In all functional ways, the Elite option is the same as Standard with a visual boost when we top it with a 1” X 6” Azek composite board that comes in red, brown, or gray. The elite option also comes with all features included with the standard design, including the 5-year guarantee, and the geotextile fabric.
