Building Foundations

There’s a reason for the cliché phrase about “setting a good foundation” or “building a strong foundation.” Foundations are a crucial starting point for any building project, large or small, and at Baker Concrete, we’ll make sure your foundation is done right.

Why You Need an Experienced, Knowledgeable Concrete Contractor

When building a foundation, the concrete needs to be perfectly level or the rest of the project won’t go as planned, causing delays and expensive corrections or a house that isn’t level. The subgrade needs to be correctly compacted and sturdy so that the ground beneath won’t fail, even in a heavy rain. And if the concrete isn’t mixed, reinforced, or cured properly, it can cause cracks, leaks, mold or mildew, and even collapsed areas.
