CONCRETE SLABS, SPLASH BLOCKS & BENCHES
Keep your AC Unit or Heater Running Optimally on a Precast Concrete Slab
Concrete slabs and pads are the predominant support structure of air conditioner units and heat pumps across the country. Why? Because they work. They keep your expensive AC units or heat pumps from sitting on shifting slate or (even worse), the dirt, which shortens the life of the unit by years! What makes concrete slabs so great is they are so durable. Concrete is made of cement mixed with water and other aggregate materials such as gravel, and sand, and other chemicals that are bonded together in such a way that creates one of the best building materials in the world. Not only that, concrete is hailed as the most popular building material due to its durability, workability and affordability. Indeed, concrete is priced at a reasonable rate for all the advantages that it gives. For the standard concrete slab that is used for pool pumps and filters, hot water heater bases, walkways and more, the cost would just be about $3 per square foot.
Another advantage of the concrete slab is that in comparison to other foundations it is relatively cheap to install. Perhaps the biggest plus for the concrete slab is the stability that it can provide and since foundations are all about stability, this is a huge plus and excellent reason for choosing this method above others such as footing and piers. Colonial has many different size pads in stock.
Splash blocks can be used to manage the drainage of rain water away from your home or building. Our splash blocks come in three lengths: 24″, 30″, and 36″.
