Any good contractor can tell you foundation work can be difficult, especially if you are not sure what steps you need to take. Taking the time to learn what steps you need to take can help you move through the process and get the new concrete foundation for your garage done. The first step is to get the area grated.
This is going to need to be smooth, flat and even as the overall grade of the area is going to affect the concrete and the forms. You then need to have the space for the forms marked.
The forms are wooden and are going to be built on the ground. The concrete company or foundation company is going to dig the trenches for the foundation then add rebar and posts to help hold the form in place. Gravel is added to the inside of the form so that the slab will be strong and durable. The form is then set and the concrete is poured into the forms. The concrete is going to be reinforced to ensure that it is strong and that it does not crack and the concrete is going to be smoothed over and allowed time to cure. The process, when done by a professional company, is easier than you might anticipate.
