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.
