Best Foundation for My Metal Building

Posted by CDMG Team on Apr 25, 2019 10:03:03 AM

Best-suited Foundation for your Pre-Engineered Steel Building

A high-quality foundation is crucial for any building.

The foundation receives very little attention compared to a building’s architecture, interior design, and facade, but without a firm foundation, these elements wouldn’t exist.

A well-designed foundation will secure a building’s longevity and functionality. Flooding, leaks, tilting walls, and shifting floors are all detrimental issues that originate from foundation issues.

No matter how beautifully designed a structure is, if it is secured to a failing foundation it won’t last long.

To protect your building from rapid deterioration, owners must consider the soil quality, building load, wind uplift, and frost lines.

It is particularly important that metal buildings are secured to a strong foundation because of their risk of wind uplift.

The type of foundation used for a metal building will influence the rest of the building design and construction, so it is vital for owners to research and plan the foundation well ahead of time.
