Our Cement Foundation Services
Whether it's building a new one or repairing a concrete house foundation in Pocatello, we can help! Here's a little bit more about the services we offer below:
Building New Ones
Before you can frame out any walls or hang drywall, a cement foundation will need to be poured. Here at K&P, we deal mainly with three different types of foundations, each with it's own features and benefits. If you have any more questions about the different types of foundation construction in Pocatello Idaho, feel free to give us a call at 208-273-8529!
Concrete slab foundations are often poured in a pad, much like a driveway or patio. Before beginning, we'll actually grade the area, dig down, and backfill the hole with a layer of gravel covered by a plastic sheet to keep moisture out. Before pouring any cement, we'll install any sewer lines or conduits that need to be ran and put down a steel mesh that strengthens the foundation. The slab itself is poured six to eight inches deep, while our commercial and residential concrete contractors will actually pour the edges deeper in order to help keep the cement from shifting or cracking as the soil around it settles.
Crawl spaces are a common type of foundation that resembles a basement but isn't generally high enough to allow storage or a living space. While cheaper than a full basement, they do keep your home away from the ground and any excess moisture coming from rainfall or snow. Our concrete foundation contractors in Pocatello ID will often dig down around four to six feet before backfilling the area with gravel. Occasionally perforated pipe is laid in the gravel to help drain away water. Once the cement has been poured and the walls have cured, we'll remove the forms and your home's construction can continue. Any questions? Feel free to give us a call at 208-273-8529 for the answers and pricing you need!
Basements give you added living space and the ability to store items downstairs. These are generally built by digging down eight to ten feet and then backfilling the area with gravel and a plastic layer. Beams are poured first, followed by the walls and lastly a floor. A steel "L" is also installed by our residential concrete foundation company to strengthen the structure and keep out any moisture.
While basement foundations are the most expensive, they do offer more living space and can also offer great lighting and outdoor access if your house is built on a slope!
Repairing Old Ones
Fixing up and maintaining the base of your home or business is a necessary process that can not only save your home, but save you thousands of dollars in other expensive repairs. Here at K&P, our Pocatello concrete foundation repair contractors are ready to help! We'll work closely with you, ensuring you understand the options available and the cost of each.
Our company primarily uses two different techniques to fix up the base of your home. "Piering" is a type of foundation repair that actually uses jacks to raise cement that's drooping or cracking. The other, "concrete jacking", is done by drilling a hole through the floor and injecting foam or cement until the foundation is once again level.
