Tella Firma Reinforced Concrete Slabs Now in Austin

Austin Texas Homes Get the Latest Construction Industry Innovation, Tella Firma’stm Suspended Reinforced Concrete Slab Technology

Tella Firma reinforced concrete technology updated – (United States, Dallas, Austin) June 22, 2011

Tella Firma™ added Austin, Texas as the latest city using Tella Firma’s suspended reinforced concrete slab. Advanced Foundation Repair (Advanced) is working with Pacesetter Homes on their latest communities. Pacesetter Homes now benefit from this latest innovation. Unlike traditional suspended reinforced concrete slabs, Tella Firma™ utilizes a totally exclusive method. They pour a flat slab on top of the ground. Then slabs are raised to a desired height above the ground. This isolates the foundation from future soil movement.

Tella Firma Reinforced Concrete

Is an exciting technology providing a more cost effective approach to building suspended slabs on expansive soils.  According to Fred Marshall, the owner of Advanced, “I expect the Tella Firma™ suspended reinforced concrete slab technology to substantially reduce the need for future foundation repairs.  Not only does the technology provide a cost effective way to build a suspended slab, but it also reduces the costs of lot development, the need for homeowner foundation maintenance (foundation watering), and warranty costs for home builders.  This technology is a win/win for all parties”.

Pacesetter Homes began building in Austin in 2008 and now has 10 active communities.  The newest community is Bell Farms, in Manor, Texas.  Manor, which lies east of Austin in the SH130 corridor, is in an area with active soils.  “An integral part of our reputation as an industry leader comes from our commitment to seek out and incorporate features that build maximum function and value into your home. We build our home designs on the belief that the most important inspiration behind your home should be you.” Pacesetter Homes

Ensuring stable new home foundations for Bell Farms, Pacesetter chose the state-of-the-art foundation design known as Tella Firma™.  The patented Tella Firma™ suspended reinforced concrete slab design virtually eliminates the potential for future soils induced foundation movement by suspending foundations off of the ground.

Advanced Foundation Repair, a Texas based business, specializes in foundation repair through both preventive applications and repairs. Offering drainage solutions, root and moisture barriers, plumbing services, construction services, foundation maintenance programs and foundation repairs.  Advanced provides residential and commercial building owners multi-tiered foundation and construction solutions.

I can't too highly recommend this company. I had work done of my foundation by another company several years ago. That work did not resolve the problem, and that company did not fix. Advanced was recommended to me by mother, who said they were the best in the business. I agree! They were polite, professional, charged reasonable prices, and did excellent work. They also have a strong guarantee that is backed by a trust. I can't imagine why you'd use any other company.read more

Advanced Foundation repair is the only way to go! The engineer, Eric was kind, helpful and informative! The crew under Haynard's watch was unbelievably considerate. The crew was in and out of our house for 5 days. Everyone of them were happy even in the 90 degree weather. They work hard and were very polite. If you saw my house now you would never even know they were here. They cleaned up every night and on the last day it looked like new! Very thankful to have been able to work with them.read more

Advanced recently performed our foundation repair and did a fantastic job! The job took four days and throughout the process, the workers were on time each day, were kind and courteous. They left our house clean each day and took great care in making my wife and newborn comfortable during the repair. They came back out to make adjustments, as was expected, and I am more than pleased with the results. Thanks to Juan Martinez, Miguel Mata and Ernesto Alvarato for doing everything I requested. I highly recommend Advanced Foundation Repair, they know what they are doing.read more
