MICHAELS OF PALATINE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY

Concrete: 

 

- Standard foundation: A typical foundation starts with a footing that is 10" tall and 20" wide. Depending on the exterior finishes of the structure and ground conditions the foundation wall thickness will vary from 8" to 10" or even 12" thick 

 

- Structural slab foundations. A structural foundation slab can be designed to the point where it does not rely on the the ground beneath it. A foundation like this would consist of a structural support system under the slab. The footing and basement floor is designed as a structural plate that is poured monolithically on top of the structural support system. This slab can vary in thickness at different points. There are grade beams that are designed within this slab that give it additional strength. There is rebar in the grade beams and slab so that when poured all at one time creates a concrete plate. The foundation then sits on top of this plate, there can be rebar typing the foundation wall to the structural slab as well. Depending on exterior finishes the foundation can be anywhere from 8" to 10" or 12" thick 

 

- Flatwork: We do plenty of flatwork, for example, we've done basement floors, concrete driveways, patios, front and rear steps. we've also put heat in garage floors and basement floors. Weve also poured and and removed plenty of street curb.

Excavation:

 

We've dug many foundations for new homes. There is a lot of work and pre-planning that goes into a home before breaking ground. We coordinate with the architect, civil engineer and soil engineers efforts to make sure the excavation cut is at the right depth. 

 

Were capable of building on any type of ground conditions because we make it a priority to make getting the home out of the ground our main focus before excavation starts. 

 

We've also done plenty of trenching for electrical service wire and sump pump drainage pipes
