Laying It Down With Old Glory: Dive into laying down the concrete slab for custom home foundations.

Updated: Feb 27

Laying It Down With Old Glory: Dive into the nitty-gritty of laying down the concrete slab for home foundations. Whether you aim to set up a sturdy base for your new shed, a sleek patio for those barbecue weekends, a durable driveway to park your pickup or a foundation for new home construction -> you're in the right spot. 




Breaking Ground: Preparation is Key - Before you even think about mixing concrete, some groundwork must be done (pun intended!). Here's the lowdown on getting the site slab-ready:


  • Clear the Stage: Remove any grass, rocks, or debris. Your future slab demands a clean canvas!


  • Mark Your Territory: Use stakes and string to outline the slab area. Precision now means no headaches later.


  • Compact and Level: A solid slab needs a solid base. Compact the soil evenly to avoid any future wobbling or cracking.


  • Forming and Reinforcing - You should pour concrete with forms and rebar!


  • Frame It Up: Build a wooden form around the perimeter of your excavation. This isn't just about keeping your concrete in place; it's about shaping your slab.


  • Mixing Magic: The right consistency is crucial—if it's too soupy or dry, you'll be in trouble.


  • Pour It Out: Start pouring the concrete into the form evenly. Work quickly but calmly; concrete waits for no one!


  • Smooth Moves: Once the concrete is in, grab your float and start smoothing. This isn't just about aesthetics; it's about ensuring your slab is flat and level.
