Couwenberg Concrete offers an experienced team of contractors who have been working in the industry for over 28 years. With that much time spent mixing and pouring concrete, you can trust we know our stuff.
When you’re constructing a home or office, you need a professional contractor from Couwenberg Concrete to start you off with a solid foundation. We know the strength and grade of concrete needed for your structure’s weight and use.
Our team will help prevent settling by supporting your foundation with footings. Proper soil assessment, depth and width placement are all key factors to creating structural support. We are trained to determine your footings dimensions based on these factors along with the size and type of your building.
We Can Provide Many Types of Foundations Including:
This concrete foundation is optimal for freezing grounds. The footing is often wider to give extra support at the base of the foundation.
A slab-on-grade foundation is placed with insulation on the outside wall and base wall to prevent freezing. This foundation only works with a heated structure, but is poured in one operation as oppose to 3 pours used in a T-shaped foundation.
Reinforcing rods are placed on a thick-edged slab of concrete to form the footing. It’s best used on a bed of gravel, where the ground doesn’t freeze. With the use of a wire mesh, we can reduce the chance of the concrete cracking.
Every contractor employed with Couwenberg Concrete is fully-insured, bonded and covered under WSIB to provide a safe environment both on and off the job site anywhere from the Niagara Region to the GTA.
Our trained professionals can help determine the best concrete foundation and footing to help secure any type of structure. Call us today with your next project’s specifications or email us your concrete questions.
