In another blog entry, <a href="http://murphyconstruction.net/about-us" title="Find out more about us you can look here.”>Murphy Construction offered to raise client awareness of one of the construction industry’s core concerns by discussing foundation fundamentals. For residents in the High Desert area of Southern California, including both Victorville and Oak Hills regions, the implementation of proper construction techniques should be a major concern. This is a particularly true statement because Southern California is a beautiful region bordering a coastal area and is near the San Andreas Fault.
Supporting & Maintaining Your Building Foundation
From the standpoint of a builder’s geographical concerns, Southern California construction projects are at risk not only for the normal tests of time and weather but also at risk from exposure to the frequent earthquakes and the ever-present humidity which comes along with those brisk, beautiful ocean breezes.
Foundations once installed tend to be not on the minds of those who visit or live at a property, but these oh-so-important facets of structure construction should be. Luckily for clients, Murphy Construction professionals are the best construction contractors in the region, and that means understanding foundation care and installation.
The artisans at Murphy Construction are familiar with all foundation types local to the region from saddle stones to pylons. Murphy Construction’s teams also understand how to support and repair existing foundations.
Types of Foundations for Visual Effect
Some foundations consist of merely wood and ground interaction. Pad stones can be used for load-bearing pillars and columns that might be used for smaller buildings or decorative garden adornments. Timber pilings can be used for supporting stone or masonry walls. Timber pilings are just not sustainable in local urban developments though some of the rural or simpler properties can get by with this level of technology. As long as the mechanics and math are right, any architect can work with wooden supports.
Murphy Construction can certainly work with timber, but this company also possesses the necessary skill sets and contacts to install the heftier supports. Installing a crisscrossing pattern of steel beams using concrete can provide better stabilization for coastal areas, bridges, and large buildings both residential and commercial.
