Poured Foundation Professionals

Here in Nebraska, poured wall foundation construction is typically the preferred choice for home builders and homeowners. Due to the need for a basement (hello, tornado season!), almost every new home foundation plan in Omaha, unless it’s a slab-on-grade foundation, will include plans for a basement. Once the land has been excavated and prepared for our Omaha based team, our concrete pouring contractors will build casts for the concrete walls and begin pouring the foundation walls of your future home!

Slab-On-Grade v Poured Wall Foundations

At Barrett, our team is adept at the construction of both slab-on-grade and poured basement foundations. Our concrete pouring contractors in Omaha are often asked the difference between the two, and the answer is actually fairly simple. As the name would suggest, a slab-on-grade foundation is a shallow foundation that does not allow for a basement. Essentially, it’s a slab of concrete that’s situated at nearly the same level as your land’s current grading, hence the term “slab-on-grade.” In Omaha and the surrounding areas, these are most commonly used for garages, sheds, and home additions.

Poured wall foundations, then, are the alternative for homeowners who wish to have a basement. Our team creates custom casts based on the foundation plan provided to create a perfectly poured foundation for any residential structure.
