Foundation – Do’s and Don’ts



  • Always hire an engineer to design the foundation.
  • Level the whole surface before starting the foundation.
  • Ensure good compaction on the surface and termite-proofing spray as well.
  • Always use first-class and fully-cooked bricks in the foundation.
  • Prepare bricks for the foundation at least two days before starting the work.
  • Use a mixture of sand and cement (mortar) for the foundation brickwork.
  • Make mortar in a quantity that can be used in 3-4 hours.
