Phase 1 Pre-Pour Foundation Inspections

What’s The Purpose of a Pre-Pour Foundation Inspection?

This inspection is performed after trenches or footers have been dug and all metal and pipe casings and/or liners have been put into place, but before pouring concrete.

All known plan measurements of depth and width of footings are verified.

All metal- rebar, beams, tension cables, etc.- are inspected for proper placement and connections.

All known pipe and sleeve measurements are verified for proper placement.

The builder is ready to pour concrete when the home’s foundation make-up has been completed. It’s at this time the pre-pour foundation inspection should be conducted.

At this phase, there are vital measurements and in-slab components that must be accurate according to the engineers plans to ensure your home’s foundation is correct before being covered over by concrete.
