In this month’s newsletter, we focus on foundations and the various factors one should consider while selecting the type of foundation needed for a structure. To help you understand in detail about the same, take a look at our blog post Types of Foundation Systems and the Cost Implications of Building.

Strong foundations can support your building for a long time and prevent problems like foundation cracks and early building ground settlement. When it comes to doing home extensions like adding a porch or building a detached Additional Dwelling Unit, it is imperative you seek out professional guidance in evaluating and preparing your foundations for construction.
