Things to Consider Before Choosing a Foundation Type

Things to Consider Before Choosing a Foundation Type

Before you can have your custom prefab steel building installed on your property, there are several questions you need to ask yourself. And out of these questions, one of the most important is the type of foundation the unit will be installed on. Here at Central Steel Carports, you can choose between the ground, gravel, asphalt, or a concrete base. In order to choose the foundation type that is best suited to your needs, budget, and custom building, take the following factors into consideration.

Research Your Local Building Codes and Permits

When you decide to have a new steel shed or other building style installed on your property, you need to make sure that it will comply with local, state, and federal building codes. If y our structure does not comply, there is a chance you will have to take the unit down and start from scratch. Your local building department can provide more information about their building requirements and permits.

Select the Site for Your Steel Building

The area you choose for your site should depend on the type of building you’ve invested in, its size, and how you plan to use it. You should also consider if your preferred foundation will be a suitable option for your chosen site. If you would like to know more about how to properly choose your installation site, feel free to reach out to us today.

Complete All Site Prep

Site prep is the steps that are taken to prepare your assembly site for the steel carport or other steel building that will be installed on your property. By following these steps, you’ll be ensuring that your assembly crew can safely and properly install your custom metal building. Site prep includes clearing your site of all debris and vegetation, leveling it, and ensuring there are no blockades. We do not provide assistance with the site preparation; it is your responsibility as the customer.

Choose Your Ideal Foundation Type

There are several foundation types you can choose from here at Central Steel Carports, including the ground, gravel, asphalt, and concrete. While each foundation type has its own advantages, we highly-recommend concrete due to its durability, longevity, and reliability. We do provide some concrete services, but they are only offered in certain areas. You can find out more about these services by calling our sales department to speak with a building representative.
