House Pads

A house pad is the base of a building that supports the foundation and prevents it from sinking or shifting. Every residential construction project begins with a soil analysis to determine composition, stability and drainage. The soil must be able to support the weight of the structure and resist erosion.

Once any trees, stumps, roots, rocks or debris have been removed, the ground is graded to the desired level and slope. topsoil is removed and saved for later use. House pads are typically ten feet wider than the floorplan and 12 inches higher than the surrounding grade. Fill dirt is moistened and compressed with a compactor in layers of 6 to 8 inches until it reaches the desired height and density.

Each pad has a gentle slope away from the house to prevent water accumulation and damage.
