New Concrete Slab Construction
Advanced Foundation Repair, LP uses the proven new concrete slab construction system, Tella Firma™. The Tella Firma foundation system helps to lower builders’ new slab construction costs, and virtually eliminate the need for foundation repairs.
If you are looking to eliminate the need for foundation repairs, the best solution in the past was to use suspended slab. Unfortunately costs of the extra components (carton forms, drilled piers, and extra beams) makes the approach too expensive.
Tella Firma utilizes drilled concrete piers or engineered helical piers and require fewer piers than traditional suspended slabs. These suspended slabs now come at a greatly reduced cost! Call or contact Advanced for details.
For concrete slabs built on expansive soils, soils needing water injection, chemical treatment or piers. Tella Firma‘s engineered slab foundation solution uses fewer materials and less labor. By using shallow perimeter beams to replace interior beams, this saves on labor and materials including the need for chemical treatments and water injection. Tella Firma uses fewer piers than a conventional concrete slab. In addition, when pouring new slabs on top of the ground, this eliminates the need for carton forms. After the poured slab, Advanced uses Tella Firma mechanisms embedded in the slab, and located over the piers, lifting the slab and creating a void. Heaving and settling soils no longer affect the slab, this virtually eliminates future foundation repairs.
