After completing the excavation, builders next get ready to build the columns and floor mat. In this process, constructing plinth beam and foundation is of next importance. To proceed with these tasks, you have to decide the floor height and for deciding this, one has to take into account certain aspects. What are those? Here we give a brief account of those factors:
Geographical Location of the Destination: A crucial aspect is to check whether the area of construction is water-logged one. For this, you have to visit the place during rainy season. You can also approach the neighbors who are residents of the area for a long time. They can provide authentic information about the area.
Placement of the House: Is the house in a low region or is it at the end of a road? Is the house located at the intersection of roads? Knowing the exact location of the house is essential to understand whether water will enter the house, if any water logging or drain issue happen in future.
Height of the Road: Ground floor of a house is measured from present road height. It is wise to consider nearly 3 to 5 times of tarring of the road. So, when the road height will increase, the house will be at the level of the road or below it. Then, there will always be a propensity that water will sweep into the house. Therefore, it is safe to fix the height of the house at least 3.5 ft high from the road and the compound area or the parking place should be at a low height than the floor.
Water logging is a serious issue and water can enter the house from any opening. Hence, it will be wise to decide the height of the first floor considering this factor.
Constructing According to Decided Height:
Now, once the floor height is decided, you should then decide at which place you stop building the column so that you can reach the desired floor height. Granite tiling together with floor leveling needs 3 to 4 inches of work. Then comes, creating the concrete bed and plinth beam, whose size is decided by constructional engineer. Round and round of works takes place for constructing the foundation base.
It is necessary to ensure that the foundation is strong. This will ultimately make the house strong and allow it to withstand all kinds of calamities.
