What is a Grade Beam?
A grade beam is a type of foundation system designed to prevent deflection and other soil–related issues that can cause damage to your home. Whether you’re constructing a new home on a hill or you need to bring your existing home up to current seismic regulations during an addition, you may need to consider a grade beam. There are a number of different foundation systems, many of which work in combination with each other. A grade beam is a continuous concrete beam reinforced with steel rebar that distributes the load between bearing points. They are supported by soil and/or pilings.
New Construction Grade Beams
When constructing a new home, you need to make sure that you have a strong foundation. There’s simply no other way to secure the future of your household, the safety of your family within that household, as well as the viability of your property investment. The use of grade beams in new construction is a great way to provide an effective and long–lasting foundation that resists uniform and differential deflection (foundation bending and cracking), and it is often required to ensure compliance with building regulations.
