Most buildings in Broward County are made of concrete, including a majority of hotels, condominiums, schools, health care centers, government buildings, warehouses, and retail shops. These “slab-on-grade” foundations are one of the most popular types because they’re quick and inexpensive to build, yet are great in our warm climate where bricks aren’t necessary. Slab-on-grade, concrete foundations work wonderfully, as long as the slab is built to a good standard of quality and longevity. Unfortunately, the average business owner has no way of knowing this upon purchasing a home and moving in. It is often years later that cracks begin to show on the floor.
