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 Wallington

    Wallington History

    The name “Wallington” derives from the Anglo Saxon “Waletone”, meaning “village of the Britons”. Wallington appears in Domesday Book of 1086 and was held by William the Conqueror. Its Domesday assets were: 11 hides. It had 2 mills worth £1 10s 0d, 11 ploughs, 8 acres of meadow. It rendered £10. The historic village was situated somewhat to the north of the current town centre around what is now Wallington Bridge over the River Wandle.

    What was then called “Carshalton” railway station was opened in 1847 in the open fields to the south of Wallington because the owner of Carshalton Park objected to it being built near to Carshalton village. This acted as a spur to the development of the area and in the 1860s Nathaniel Bridges created a prestigious housing estate of gothic revival villas.
