House Foundation (cont., pg. 10)

 

Things You Should Watch For In Building Your Foundation


 - Check to see that forms are level by placing a level at various spots, or use a line level.



- Check footings and grade beams to make sure that they are the width and depth indicated on your plan.



- Measure the location of grade beams.  They will have a load-bearing framed wall above.

 

Corners are a good spot to check for level forms. 


Deviations should be brought to the attention of the contractor.










Fasten a string at various points on top of the forms.


The ‚Äúline level‚ÄĚ is a good way to spot errors that are easy to fix before any more work is done.
