Floating Slab

Are you looking to build modest constructions like sheds, garages, or backyard additions in the vicinity of Peterborough? Given that they are often light in structure, why choose elaborate and extra robust foundations? The floating slab is the perfect answer for such straightforward foundational structures. Since the slab doesn't need a concrete footing with deep extensions below the frost line, this form of slab foundation is most frequently employed in northern regions.

They are typically built on soil that contains significant amounts of sand, clay, or water, and the floating slab is occasionally referred to as a raft foundation. Instead of placing the structure's weight at specific supporting columns, our floating slab distributes it across the entire base. They could ideally be used in specific building areas because of their short depth.
