A concrete slab on grade, or floating slab foundation, is a practice where concrete is poured all at one time and there is no clearance between the ground and the slab.
Slab on grade is primarily used in areas where the ground doesn’t freeze. However, the concrete slab can be adapted with insulation. There is also a trend with newer homes to add radiant floor distribution systems to keep the concrete slab nice and warm during cold winters. Concrete slabs can also be etched and stained to provide beautiful and easy to maintain flooring throughout your entire home or business.
Since the floor of any building or structure is perhaps the most utilized area, it is important to hire professionals to handle the job from design to curing and everything in between.
