Foundations of our steel frame houses

At Pelasgos Homes we are making the foundations for our steel frame houses following these procedure:

House foundations:

  1. A layer of 10cm crasher run is installed. Applying a layer of crusher run on top of the soil will help the concrete remain in place and last much longer and it also ensures waterproofing of the foundations.
  2. Polyethylene (250gr/ m2) is installed underneath the concrete to provide waterproofing of the foundation.
  3. Reinforcement of the concrete foundation on 2 levels (Y12/15cm) extra reinforcement of the areas where the columns are installed(Y16).
  4. Concrete foundation of 40 cm with C25 quality.

Foundations of the verandas:

  1. A layer of 10 cm crasher run is installed. Applying a layer of crusher run on top the soil will help the concrete to remain in place and last much longer, as it ensures waterproofing of the foundations.
  2. Polyethylene 250 gr/ m2 is installed underneath the concrete to provide waterproofing of the foundation.
  3. Reinforcement of the concrete foundation on 1 level Y8/20 cm and extra reinforcement of the areas where columns are installed
  4. Concrete 15 cm with quality C30

House floorings:

  1. A 10 cm layer of Screed with quality C25 is installed on each floor to cover electricity and plumbing pipes.
  2. 5cm mortar 3:1 is installed on each level to ensure a smooth surface for the installation of tiles or parquet.

Foundation Insulation

  1. Terraces, verandas and perimeters where cement panels are connected to the foundation are isolated with Weber Dry SS – elastomeric cement based waterproof coating which is ideal for structures which may be subject to movement. 3 layers are applied with a reinforcing mesh to ensure crack- bridging properties improvement.
  2. The side of the foundations is isolated with 3 layers of bituminous protective coating INSULATION COATING ( Domoproof).
