Hello everyone! I thought it would be fun to talk about your home’s foundation today.
For New Construction
Have you ever looked at a construction site after the foundation’s been poured? By the way, the foundation of the garage is included as part of the foundation of the whole house. When you look at a foundation you will see pipes coming up through it. That’s because underneath your foundation slab is all your piping and drainage, all the water for the house. You’ll also be able to see where gas lines come up for the stove or anything else in your house that uses gas, such as a gas washer and dryer. So you can see that a lot of things go in underneath your house before they ever pour the slab.
Should a Foundation Be Perfectly Flat?
One thing that you might notice is that the foundation is not perfectly even. No foundation is perfectly even. Even during construction, as soon as the foundation is poured, it’s not perfectly even. It’s important for you to know that it’s not possible to lay a perfectly flat surface. There is always going to be a little bit of movement, even when it’s brand new. Are you thinking of building a new home soon? If so, I’d love to walk you through the process from the foundation to the day you get your keys!
