The foundation of a building is the most important part of its structure. Not only does it hold your home or business up, it also keeps out moisture, resists the movement of the earth and keeps out the cold. In order to do all these things properly, a foundation needs to be built by a professional concrete contractor.
Erecting the foundation of a building involves more than just digging a hole in the ground and pouring cement into forms. When your foundation is built in a way that’s suited to the location, it’s not unreasonable to expect it to last up to a century.
