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 Basic, Standard, or Signature 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 you’re 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; Basic, Standard, and Signature, and the various differences in design are listed below.
Basic 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 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 comes with a 5 year guarantee for any settling or drainage issues.
Signature Stone Base Foundation
The Signature option includes all of the features of the Standard and in addition includes stainless steel corner braces and an enhanced drainage system. An optional visual boost can include a 1” X 6” Azek composite board that comes in red, brown, or gray. The Signature option has a 10-year guarantee.
