Concrete Foundation Forming
There are 3 types of foundations. T-Type with walls poured on top of footings as shown here, Slab on Grade and Frost Protected which relies on the building to be heated. Due to the winter conditions in southern Ontario, most homes are built with T-Type foundations that start with a footing below the frost line, and a wall is then constructed on top that. lastly, the floor is poured between the walls on the appropriate amount of crushed stone.
Note it is important to have all your water and drainage systems in place at the time of forming.
Frost Protected Concrete Slabs
With this method, 2 layers of rigid polystyrene insulation are used. One on the outside walls of the slab and another under the slab. In this case, the heat of the building is contained in the slab to protect against frost damage. For more information on frost protected slabs and how they can save money click here.
