SlabTek™ added Austin, Texas as the latest city using SlabTek’s suspended reinforced concrete slab. Advanced Foundation Repair (Advanced) is working with Pacesetter Homes on their latest communities, so that the new homes will benefit from this latest innovation
Unlike traditional suspended reinforced concrete slabs, SlabTek™ utilizes a totally exclusive method of pouring a flat slab on top of the ground and then raising the slab to a desired height above the ground, thus isolating the foundation from future soil movement.
SlabTek™ is an exciting technology providing a more cost effective approach to building suspended slabs on expansive soils. According to Fred Marshall, the owner of Advanced, “I expect the SlabTek™ suspended reinforced concrete slab technology to substantially reduce the need for future foundation repairs. Not only does the technology provide a cost effective way to build a suspended slab, but it also reduces the costs of lot development, the need for homeowner foundation maintenance (foundation watering), and warranty costs for homebuilders. This technology is a win/win for all parties”
Pacesetter Homes began building in Austin in 2008 and now has 10 active communities. The newest community is Bell Farms, in Manor, Texas. Manor, which lies east of Austin in the SH130 corridor, is in an area with active soils. “An integral part of our reputation as an industry leader comes from our commitment to seek out and incorporate features that build maximum function and value into your home. Our home designs are built on the belief that the most important inspiration behind your home should be you.” Pacesetter Homes
To ensure a stable foundation for new homes in Bell Farms, Pacesetter has chosen the state-of-the-art foundation design known as SlabTek™. The patented SlabTek™ suspended reinforced concrete slab design virtually eliminates the potential for future soils induced foundation movement by suspending foundations off of the ground.
