Different types of house foundations
The start of any home is a solid foundation. There are a few options depending on the design of the home as well as the earth it is built on. Some structures may even have a combination of foundation types.
The most common types of foundations include:
Below are the most common types;
Poured concrete walls this is the most common today.
Concrete block walls, common from 1940-1975 and still used today.
Stone walls are more common in older homes.
Monolithic foundations can be a block or poured walls but the floor and footing are poured in one piece. With walls on top, this is a two-piece foundation instead of a three-piece foundation.
Identifying the type of foundation is important for diagnosing any foundation or waterproofing concerns and to determine the best permanent solutions. Scheduling a free inspection with a proposal is the best thing to do if you have concerns.
