As part of our 7 day event, we are offering 50% off on selected garden building foundations. Foundations are required to transmit the load of the garden building safely to the ground; they are the supports for the whole building and have to be laid correctly. If the foundations and bearers are wrong then the weight of the building will be distributed on two small areas which will cause a lot of problems in the future as the logs become stressed.
Garden Building Foundation types
Foundations are typically made of concrete. There are two types of foundations: Shallow and Deep foundations. The shallow foundations are constructed closely to the ground, and are only used where the top level soil is capable of holding the load placed upon it. Deep foundations are normally dug at least 3ft into the ground. You use deep foundations when the load being placed on the soil needs additional support.
At Dunster House, we provide two different types of foundations, Premium RapidGrids and PremiumPlus Rapipad foundations. There are many benefits to using our Rapipad Foundations and we are going to go through some of them below
There is no need for concrete:
The Rapid Foundation Systems are a cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to concrete foundations. Costing much less than a concrete base would, the Rapid Foundations do not ruin the surrounding soil. It also need very little soil removed compared to if you were laying a concrete base.
Save time and hiring costs:
When you are laying traditional garden foundations such as concrete, you have to dig out a lot of soil, turf and earth. Unless you want to risk putting this dirt in your car, you will have to hire a skip at personal expense. With our PremiumPlus RapidPads being 450mm x 350mm x 40mm, you will not have as much to get rid off so there is no need for a skip.
Trying to sort out foundations for your home can be difficult. Digging up the garden, creating a base, laying concrete, smoothing the concrete and hoping it does not rain in the 48 hours it takes to completely dry can be time consuming.
Our RapidPad foundations are quick and easy to prepare so it will not use all of your time up.
