What Your Foundation Contractor Will Do

What your foundation contractor does will vary according to the type of foundation.

 

 - Layout and dig footings, install rebar (if not already done by a separate footings contractor).


- Lay concrete block for crawlspace or basement wall (masonry contractor)


- Install rebar, anchor bolts, vapor barrier, stone – all components of what will be the finished foundation.


- Pour and finish concrete.

 
 
Use some of your stone for a temporary driveway.

What You Need To Do For Concrete Slab

- Meet on site with your contractor.  Stake the foundation corners, making sure they are within the building lines marked by surveyor.

- Order materials he will need: rebar, anchor bolts, poly vapor barrier, crushed stone ─ which serves as a base beneath concrete floor.  He should provide his own concrete forms.

 

 

Stone in place, before poly cover, this is the time to get termite soil treatment done.- When footings are dug and forms in place, bring in the plumber to rough-in water and sewer lines.

- Plumber should call for inspection when he is finished. 

As soon as plumbing inspection passes, your foundation subcontractor can continue.
