Garage Foundation

The garage foundation is one of the most essential parts to building your garage. In fact, it’s the base from which everything is built. For such an important step, you want to go with a company you can trust.

Danley’s is known for making quality garages that start with a new foundation. We have a proven process that has helped us build over 100,000 garages. We’ll make sure your garage foundation is perfect and is ready for us to start building the rest of your garage.

What’s a Garage Foundation?

The foundation of your garage is the slab of concrete in which everything is built upon. It needs to be poured, smoothed, and properly pitched to ensure the foundation floor is solid and looks great. Our concrete teams have the expertise to ensure this isn’t a problem that will occur with our garages.

How to Build a Garage Foundation

There are a few things that need to happen before the concrete is poured. The previous garage must be demolished and hauled away (which is something that Danley’s offers) so there’s level ground to work with. Then, we’ll determine where the stakes should go. The area between the stakes is where we’ll build the foundation.

We’ll also dig a footing around the perimeter of your garage. This is to prevent the foundation from settling when the concrete is poured. We follow local building code for the depth which is 12′ – 18′ inches.

The foundation starts with a gravel fill and a mesh net to reinforce the concrete.  Then we pour the concrete between the stakes.

The Smoothing Process

Once the concrete is poured, we’ll smooth it out and ensure it’s properly pitched. It’s important this is done right because it can lead to a weakened surface and excessive or abnormal cracking if not done properly. Thankfully, we’ve been building garages for over 60 years and will make sure your garage foundation is properly prepared and cured before moving on.
