A slab foundation is a large, thick slab of concrete that is typically 4”-6” thick in the center and poured directly on the ground all at one time. The edges of the slab are thicker (as wide as 24”) in order to allow for extra strength around the perimeter.

A concrete slab foundation is most commonly constructed on property that has been graded, as it should be. It is very important that the soil be graded because if it’s not, the foundation could sink or settle due to poor soil compaction.

    Facts About Ratcliff

    Ratcliff History

    Ratcliffe in earlier times was also known as “sailor town”, originally known for shipbuilding but from the fourteenth century more for fitting and provisioning ships. In the sixteenth century, various voyages of discovery were supplied and departed from Ratcliffe, including those of Willoughby and Frobisher.

    By the early seventeenth century it had the largest population of any village in Stepney, with 3500 residents. It was again a site of shipbuilding in the seventeenth century – a number of sailing warships were built for the Royal Navy here, including one of the earliest frigates, the Constant Warwick in 1645.
