Benefits of Installing CMU’s
There is no substitute for concrete. A CMU or concrete masonry unit is a preferred method for residential structure. CMU’s are concrete blocks that are stacked into columns to add additional support to sinking foundations. A typical foundation consists of a steel reinforced concrete footing with stacked & mortared concrete blocks. These piers are filled with grout to form a CMU.
Why CNT Foundations Uses CMU’s
Our team at CNT Foundations uses CMU’s in crawl spaces to help increase the support of the original construction when framing starts to bow or deteriorate. We utilize CMU’s because they are both functional and cost effective.
If you notice structural problems within your crawl space, you may need to consider installing concrete masonry units. Call the experts in North Charleston at 843-405-7022 to receive your free estimate.
