Concrete is strong and durable, and a concrete foundation is often the best solution for horse barns, pole barns, and garages. The Gibraltar, Concrete Pillars, Floating Slab, and Graduated Slab are the types of concrete foundations that we offer. The type of foundation that’s best for your situation depends on the type of building that you’re installing, and we’ll work with you to determine which of these options best meets your needs.

BedRock ensures that your building rests on level ground. Each foundation is brought to a level grade using a laser.

Another important consideration is to make sure that the foundation exactly matches the shape of your building. As an example, a gazebo, a cabana, or a pavilion may be octagonal, square, or rectangular. Buildings come in many sizes and shapes, and our attention to detail will guarantee that your foundation will be exactly the right size and shape for your structure.

Some townships require horse barns to rest on concrete pillars.
