Mat-slab foundations, also called on-grade mat foundations, consist of a solid concrete slab that supports the entire area of a building. The foundation is usually just beneath the surface and will be thicker depending on the height of the structure.


Want to make sure that your parking lot is green? Then choose concrete over asphalt. Asphalt is petroleum-based, while concrete uses a mix of natural stones like limestone and clay. Concrete can also be extra green by being made with pieces of recycled concrete for aggregate.

The secrets of effective concrete construction techniques were lost for 1300 years after the fall of Rome in 476 AD. Concrete re-emerged as a building material in 1785, when French mason Francois Cointeraux formulated a cementitious mortar, which he used in conjunction with rammed-earth building methods.


How does concrete lifting work? The contractor drills holes into the sunken concrete slab at regular intervals and pumps cement slurry into the holes. As the slurry fills the voids below, it creates sufficient pressure to lift the slab to the desired level.


An important step in the concrete construction process involves curing the cement. Here, concrete surfaces are cured by sprinkling with water or by using moisture-retaining fabrics. A curing compound can also be used to prevent evaporation of water from the surface.


If concrete is improperly mixed and poured, it is not noticeable at first look. When it cures it looks like the work was done correctly, but problems arise quickly as the concrete begins to crack, flake, chip, and disintegrate. Trust professionals when pouring any size foundation.
