Due to expansive soils (such as clay) there are many problems for the typical concrete foundation. Many jobs in Florida require expensive removal of clay of up to 10 feet! We lower the cost of site preparation by not having to under cut the soils from beneath the structure. This process eliminates the cost to remove clay and also the cost to bring in replacement fill dirt!
With Post Tension Concrete, all stresses from seasonal expansion and contraction of the underlying soil are taken into the entire tensioned slab, which supports the building without significant flexure.
Achieve lower construction costs, efficiency, quicker construction and lower lifetime cost of your structure.
Steel cables in poly sleeves placed in a grid pattern according to engineered specifications inside the slab. Once the foundation is poured, the cables are hydraulically tightened to required pressures to secure the foundation into one mass.
