A solid foundation is necessary to support any type of structure in order to bear loads that that are within or on the building. Both the footings and the foundation distribute the load that is put upon the bearing surface. These are designed to keep a building level and plumb and to keep settling to a minimum. Homes and buildings built in an area with loose soil will need to have soil bearing characteristics taken into consideration. At Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs, we have the knowledge and experience to build a custom foundation support system that is specific to the area where a home or commercial property is proposed to be located.
Not all soil is ideal for building on. Here in the Southeast, our soil can be extremely diverse within different areas of a single state. Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs has over 90 years of experience in building homes and commercial properties all over Georgia. You can click through our website and find examples of our custom foundation support systems. In fact, we have developed a foundation support system for a large log home that was built on a 100-year-old flood plain with very loose soil. We used our capability and know-how to develop proper footings and foundation slab that has held that home with the strongest support. After more than sixteen years, there have been no signs of settling – that is a huge accomplishment that we are proud to boast about.
If you are interested in building, please take as much time and consideration into the footings and foundation of your home as you do choosing a house plan. At Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair, we offer a lifetime of structural and masonry experience that is backed by a lifetime warranty. Our number one goal is to get it right, the first time.
