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 Saffron Walden

    Saffron Walden History

    The market was moved from nearby Newport to Saffron Walden during de Mandeville’s tenure, increasing the town’s influence. This Tuesday market was held from 1295. The town’s first charter was granted in about 1300, to what was known then as Chepyng Walden. The town at that time was largely confined to the castle’s outer bailey, but in the 13th century, the Battle or Repel Ditches were built or extended to enclose a larger area to the south. The focus of the town moved southwards to Market Square.
