Garage Bases

The foundations for your concrete Garage is a very important factor because it must not only be able to bear the weight of the base but also the building, each soil type will also have a different load bearing capability and you may have to install a hard core before laying your base.

Bases are usually made from concrete as it helps distribute the weight  evenly, the thickness will depend on the size and weight of your building, the heavier your building the thicker your base must be,a local ground contractor or builder may offer a concrete base laying service.

A structural engineer will be able to give you more information about the type of base you may need for the size and weight of building you intend to purchase and will be able to answer any questions you may have, some garage installers will not install a building onto a poorly constructed base and you would have to have the base redone and then arrange for the installer to come back and erect your building which will add extra costs.
