Before  new building can be built and you must decide what type of concrete foundations it will be built upon. It seems every town and village here on Long Island has their own building department and their own set of regulations and specifications that must be it adhered to. There are various types of soils here on Long Island that must be analyzed before a building can be permitted to be built.

What Goes into the Planning of  Concrete Foundations?

Aside from the local town building code a conscientious builder will have a soil analysis done if he suspects the construction site to be in an unstable location. Areas that are close to the beach and have a high content of sand and a high water table are typically tested by a local engineering firm that is familiar with the history of the area. Soil Samples A local licensed engineer will have soil samples taken from the site so they can be tested for soil stability and determine the loadbearing capacity at different depths for that construction location. Depending on the results of the soil tests a structural engineer will be consulted along with the architect and builder to design a concrete foundation that is suitable for those soil conditions and the building to be constructed

Avoid Concrete Foundations Failure

When a builder sees to it that proper analysis is done before construction he is preventing a host of problems in the future. When the proper research is done a concrete foundation designed specifically for that soil composition. The concrete foundation designed specifically for that soil composition and weight and design of the home will avoid such things as soil shifts or soil settlement causing movement of the foundation. It's not uncommon for soil to settle or compress beneath one section of a foundation while remaining stable and solid at another location under the same foundation. When this occurs more than likely cracks in the walls above windows and doors which indicates there may well be a crack in the footing supporting the entire building, problems like these are avoided when the proper analysis is done before the structure is built

many soil stability issues. Helical piles are used to connect the footings of a concrete foundations to increase their load stability; a steel plate is attached to the top of the helical pile this is used to connect the pier to the foundation. For newly constructed concrete foundation many helical piers are anchored to the earth at predetermined depths, the footing is then encased over the helical piles to enhance stability.

Three Common Types of Concrete Foundations

Here on Long Island there are three basic foundation types most commonly used for the construction of a new building. They are; slab foundations, crawlspace foundations, and full basement foundations. In our next article we will discuss the pros and cons of all three of these foundations.

Let me give you the bottom line. If need helical piles installed and you want the job done correctly, timely and fairly, you need to use High Rise industries. Danny and Silvio have spent much time at my home during this project. We have become friends. We never had one argument or disagreement. They were always fair and upfront.

“I spoke with the two gentlemen who were going to do the installation of the helical piles — Silvio and Danny Rebelo from High-Rise Industries.  After our first conversation I realized that they had the experience and knowledge to get the job done right.  They are the owners of a family business located here on Long Island.  Both Silvio and Danny were easy to talk to, and were always on time for all their appointments.  Throughout the whole process they explained everything and reassured me that I had made the right choice.”

“High-Rise Industries quoted me a price for the installation of helical piles and stuck to it. There were no hidden or added costs and their price was fair and very competitive. During the installation Silvio explained the entire procedure to me and patiently answered all of my questions.”
