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 Waltham Abbey

    Waltham Abbey History

    The recorded history of the town began during the reign of Canute in the early 11th century when his standard-bearer Tovi or Tofig the Proud, founded a church here to house the miraculous cross discovered at Montacute in Somerset. It is this cross that gave Waltham Abbey the earliest suffix to its name. After Tovi’s death around 1045, Waltham reverted to the King, who gave it to the Earl Harold Godwinson. Harold rebuilt Tovi’s church in stone around 1060, in gratitude, it is said for his cure from a paralysis, through praying before the miraculous cross. Waltham Abbey’s people used the abbey as their parish church, and paid their tithes, worked the glebe as well any of their lord’s land, and paid other dues to the canons.
