Features of the Stone Foundation:
Site excavation and leveling.
Use pressure-treated 4x6 or 4x4 perimeter bolstered with ½'' x 24" rebar pegs through the 4x6s or 4x4s for enhanced stability.
The upper surface of the 4x6s or 4x4s is designed to rise around 1" above the ground, particularly at the structure's entrance.
A 4'' to 6" layer of 3/4" refined stone is meticulously leveled and compacted.
A geotextile fabric is employed to keep the stone and soil distinct. This arrangement expedites drainage, offers increased foundational stability, and curbs weed growth near the structure.
This stone foundation doubles as a drainage layer, safeguarding the structure's sides and flooring from moisture-induced decay. It also deters uneven settling, prolonging the lifespan of the structure.
Pricing is based on the premise that the site is no more than 10" off-level. Variations beyond this may incur extra charges during the work day.
Additional fees might be levied if excavation involves rocks, stumps, or extensive root systems.
For a pad 10" to 20" off level, add a 25% charge.
For a pad 20" to 28" off level, increase by 35%.
For pads exceeding 28" off-level, a bespoke quote is needed.
Any surplus soil to be utilized on the site. Transporting excess dirt off-site may lead to extra charges.
Clients must ensure unhindered site access for equipment. During the process, the customer assumes responsibility for any damages to property, vegetation, underground cables, or plumbing.
