Concrete Slabs and Footings

At Oly Mattera Construction, we have the expertise to help you when it comes to construction projects that require concrete footings or concrete slabs. We are well trained in providing solutions for most purposes.

■ Concrete Slabs

Concrete slabs have a wide range of intended uses and support requirements and because of this there are many construction variables that must be considered before the actual concrete placement begins.

At Oly Mattera Construction we are aware that a slab pour needs efficient planning. By carefully planning the steps we make sure that all of the elements that go into making a high-quality slab are done before the concrete sets and done correctly. We use the proper finishing tools and never rush the work. Doing things at the right time is essential to preventing dusting, scaling and craze cracking of the slab.

A firm and stable base is essential for the concrete slab. Properly compacting the sub grade helps in avoiding future issues, especially if the concrete slabs are placed on poor subsoil or if they need to withstand heavy traffic. Determining the anticipated traffic conditions is essential for choosing the right concrete mix design and reinforcement requirements for the concrete slabs.

■ Concrete Footings

Every house has a foundation and under most foundations you can find footings. If you build on soft soil or if there is a soft soil zone under part of your foundation, there can be trouble. At Oly Mattera Construction we believe that a footing responds differently from a type of soil to another. That is why understanding the bearing strength of soil and knowing the reasons behind footing design is critical. That is why we rely on very good planning and the correct choice of footings type and layout.

Footing types:

  • T-shape
  • Slab-on-Grade
  • Frost-protected
