6 - Foundation

All buildings need a strong foundation to rest on. The foundation supports the total weight of the structure (dead load) & also helps prevent uplift from high winds (especially micro-bursts).

You can choose between footings only, full concrete slab or existing concrete if you already have the concrete in place.
