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 West Drayton

    West Drayton History

    From 1525 St Paul’s began leasing West Drayton Manor to tenants. From 1537 the lessee of the manor was William Paget who held the high office of the state in the court of Henry VIII. On 1 April 1546, the Dean and Chapter of St Paul’s released the Manor of West Drayton to the Crown, and two weeks later Henry granted the manor to the now knighted Sir William Paget.

    While he was leasing the manor William Paget used the existing building of St Pauls which was situated near St Martin’s Parish church. Paget described the building as his “cotage at Drayton”. Once owning the manor he built a new manor house, completed by 1549, which occupied the western end of the churchyard. The Manor grounds contained the Church, ornamental gardens, stables, a dovecote, and other outbuildings and were enclosed by a high brick wall and two gatehouses.
