Cold Weather Protection

The company's foundation construction services do more than simply hold the structure of your building together. Expert laying of foundations also helps to protect against cold weather, keeps moisture at bay, and helps your building resist the movement of the adjacent soil. Waltz Concrete ensures that the base is properly compacted, the formwork is correctly set up, and that the concrete is free from voids.

T-Shaped Foundations

The team at Waltz Concrete offers you expertise in a range of foundation types. In Michigan, where ground temperatures are often below freezing in the colder months, T-shaped foundations are commonly used to underpin a structure. This places the foundation beneath the frost line while ensuring that the base footing is wider than your wall above for extra protection.


The company can also lay slab-on-grade foundations – a continuous layer of concrete that lies directly on the ground with the edges poured thicker and inlaid with rods to create a more solid footing. Typically the slabs are laid on a bed of crushed gravel to improve drainage while a loop of wire is cast within the concrete to prevent cracking.

Insulation Options

For extra protection against the elements, you can choose an insulated foundation. Waltz Concrete inserts two sheets of polystyrene insulation to retain heat from the structure above which holds the temperature of the footings above zero.
