Benefits of Installing CMU's
Nothing can replace concrete. A CMU or concrete masonry unit is a favored strategy for residential structures. CMUs are cement blocks that are stacked into columns to give your sinking foundation a little boost. Most foundations comprise of a rebar-reinforced concrete footing with stacked and mortared concrete blocks. These piers are loaded with grout to make a CMU.
Why CNT Foundations Uses CMU's
Our group at CNT Foundations utilizes CMUs in crawl spaces to increase support for the original structure when the framing begins to bow or crumble. We use CMUs because they are both practical and affordable.
If you see issues inside your crawl space, you may need to consider introducing concrete masonry units. Call CNT Foundations in Charleston at 843-405-7022 to get your free assessment.
