Footings & Shed Foundations

A Solid Start

What Are Footings?

Footings are the unsung heroes of any construction project. They are the concrete structures that bear the weight of the entire building, ensuring it stays firmly in place. These horizontal supports are typically placed beneath the ground, providing stability and strength to your structure.

The Role of Concrete

Concrete is the building block of these footings. Its unmatched strength and durability make it the ideal material to support the load of your shed, home, or any other structure. We supply top-quality concrete that’s designed to withstand the test of time, ensuring your footings remain solid for years to come.

Shed Foundations – Building on a Strong Base

Shed foundations, or shed bases, are essential for the stability and longevity of your garden shed. Just like footings, they rely on concrete for their strength and durability.

Using Concrete for Shed Foundations

Our concrete is specially designed to create a solid foundation for your shed. It prevents moisture from seeping through and offers excellent insulation, protecting your valuables from the ground up. With our concrete, you can trust that your shed will stand strong in all weather conditions.

The Process of Concrete Footings & Shed Foundations

  • Preparation Works
    Before pouring concrete, thorough preparation is vital. We assess the soil, make necessary excavations, and ensure a level and firm base for the footings or shed foundation.
  • Ground works
    Proper ground work is crucial to prevent future settlement and unevenness. We take great care in this phase, ensuring the ground is compacted and stable.
  • Pouring Works
    Our experts handle the pouring phase meticulously. We use shuttering, mesh, and rebar as needed to create a reinforced structure that can support the intended load. We pay attention to every detail, ensuring your foundations are solid and secure.
