Freeze and thaw, warm versus cold, all are factors on the weight scale. Alaska is famous for cool temperatures, and permafrost. Building your foundation right is no easy task. Skill and experience run hand in hand.
When first breaking ground, coming across old pipes, new pipes, and even electrical are common denominators. Dig with caution, and know what’s below!
In this particular foundation, the plumbing was too old. We replaced it with new ABS. Stronger and sturdier.
The footers have been placed. Next, form-boards go up. Once everything is ready, it’s time to pour the walls.
The concrete has dried. The walls have had ample time to cure. The walls now need to be insulated. We used white board.
Now for the fun part, back filling the hole!
A strong foundation is what AK Additions by Flint’s Home Improvements guarantees.
