In this section you will find materials that will help you determine what kind of foundation is needed for your house. We offer three types of foundations, each of which is suitable for certain construction conditions and each has its own unique characteristics. Our houses can be installed on any of them, the choice is in your hands.
Warmed Swedish plate.
Today, this type of foundation construction is the most energy-efficient. By cooperating with the leading Baltic specialists in the field of heat loss reduction, we can confidently assure that we offer our customers valuable technology.
The main difference is the complete isolation of the building from the ground. Trying to describe the technology in a short and maximally saturated way, it should be added that the liquid and reinforcement (the usual components of each monolith) are placed in a special foam form. In the first moment, a dubious idea is turned into a safe step on the way to a house with A, A + and A ++ energy efficiency. Everything has been considered – the possibility of the formation of thermal bridges, foundation deformation, soil subsidence, problems related to freezing.
Speed of construction, minimal digging of trenches and simplicity – benefits again. And all this while maintaining the durability and stability that every home’s foundation needs.
This technology is more expensive than traditional tapes or piles. For example, a 117m2 house. Our price for tape foundations for such a house is 9000 €, it is built on sand. The plate will cost 12,000 € and more.
However, the price difference will pay off many times over, reducing heating costs over several years.
Traditional technology. A conservative reinforced concrete monolith, the laying technology of which stands out for its simplicity, while the foundations themselves stand out for their stability and durability.
Such foundations can last more than a hundred years. So it is the best solution for an individual builder who wants to build a heavier, not lighter ecological house.
The technology foresees a large amount of earthworks, an increase in price depending on the characteristics of the soil and the need for more time consumption.
The most well-known form of foundation, which loses to piles and slabs in terms of energy efficiency. If the budget does not allow to install Swedish plates, but the piles do not inspire confidence, then this is the best option.
When turning to us, the client can count on quality. Quality also characterizes pile foundations, a technology against which mistrust is undeservedly but firmly rooted.
At first glance, a house on stilts may cause skepticism. This can be exacerbated by the news that it takes a day to resolve the underlying issue. It’s scary to imagine what a person thinks when they learn that the very next day they start to install the house on the foundation. Complete it in one day. It will be hard for a person to believe that his neighbor built a house in two days, while he himself spent 3-4 months. The first thought – “economiy on quality.”
No. Physics and mathematics claim that pile foundations are stable. The foundations of the piles, which we installed with our experienced cooperation partners, are even more stable. Confidence in the offered product allows us to guarantee quality.
Now look – the distance from the house to the ground reduces heat loss, is installed in a few days, requires minimal digging, saves a significant amount of money (especially for those owners who have peat in the soil at a depth of 6-8 meters). This option is worth thinking about.
You can decide what is best for your building plot by looking at the results of a geological survey.
