Each project starts from the ground up. When expanding your cage or enclosed patio, a foundation must be made to support your outdoor structure. If you’re seeking pavers to be part of your cage foundation, you’ve come to the right place. As with most construction, the quality of this foundation predicates the overall quality of the project. Typically, there are three types of foundation associated with most projects.
Concrete Slab – A 4” thick monolithic slab is poured and used as the foundation for screen enclosures. This concrete is common for smaller lanai screen rooms and expansion projects when it can withstand all county weight-pressure standards. CRA then offers you a variety of decorative options including special finishes, paints, and textures. Tile or pavers are a very popular option and usually applied over your slab.
Footers – Used when a larger cage is built that requires more foundational strength, typically in conjunction with a concrete pad but sometimes without. Footers are made with form boards, creating an 8” x 8” spacing and reinforced with a floating steel bar.
Stem Wall – Used in conjunction with concrete pads and footers when the job site requires extra fortification, or it is on a gradient slope.
