Here is where you would talk about the many aspects of foundations. First you would want to discuss just what the term "foundations" means. Then go into the many different examples of where foundations are applied in the business/commercial and residential settings.

Here is some sample content from an existing site. This is placed here for you to review and to see if it may be useful for this section.

Foundation walls serve three functions for builders and consumers. Foundation walls support the above-ground structure, retain the soil surrounding the basement area, and frame economical additional storage and living space for consumers.

Keeping these functions in mind and getting beyond the marketing hype beyond the rhetoric - poured concrete foundation walls out perform hollow core masonry foundations in four areas that builders and consumers should strongly consider:

  • Strength
  • Speed of Construction
  • Construction on "Marginal Lands"
  • Year-Round Construction

    Builders and consumers get 40% more concrete, dollar for dollar, in a poured concrete foundation wall. More concrete means a stronger, denser foundation with fewer pores or seams for water to seep through, and less call backs for the builder.

    Poured concrete foundation walls take less time to construct than hollow core masonry foundation walls. Time is money, and the quicker a builder can begin "roughing in," the more money he/ she saves.

    Poured concrete foundation walls provide the structural integrity necessary to bridge "soft" zones on "marginal lands," saving the builder and consumer time and money when construction takes place on fill or poor soil conditions.

    And technological advances in concrete admixtures provide quality control for poured concrete foundation walls constructed in inclement weather or freezing temperatures.
