Understanding the Crawl Space Foundation

Understanding the Crawl Space Foundation

Choose a trusted concrete foundation contractor in Apple Valley, Hurricane & St. George, UT

Choosing what type of foundation on which to build your new home is a big decision. The rest of your home literally rests on it. Thinking about building a residential concrete foundation with a crawl space?

The team at Andrew Zitting Construction LLC can fill you in on the basics. We'll come out and dig footings deep enough to go past the frost line. The footings are filled with concrete and reinforced with rebar. Then, the concrete wall forms are poured. Once all of this is tested and dry, the walls of the crawl space are constructed.

A crawl space elevates your home about 4 feet off the ground-tall enough for access but not for a basement. If you're ready to schedule this type of concrete construction, contact your local concrete foundation contractor in Apple Valley, Hurricane or St. George, UT now.

Why choose a crawl space foundation for your home?

A residential concrete foundation crawl space has its pros and cons, just like slab foundations. Which one you choose depends on your budget, location and type of home. Here are the pros of crawl space foundations:

 


  • They're great for sloped lots
  • They work better with soils like red clay
  • They allow you to access your plumbing and wiring
  • They make insect inspections simpler
  • They offer some extra storage
