Solid Foundations, Inc. was established in 1990 by Daniel and Valerie Gore. The company was formed due to the strong need for a poured wall company in the Northwest Ohio area. Valerie became sole owner of Solid in 2010 following the tragic passing of Dan to Cancer. This was a sad time at Solid Foundations but continuing the business was the right decision. We will work on your jobsite like it is our own.

The process

Projects initiate at the office which is located at the corner of State Route 20 and County Road 292. Estimates are taken from the customers blueprints. Upon confirmation of a job, an experienced CAD operator meets with the customer to gather information. Due to the fact that most home designs are altered (from the original blueprints), all foundation plans are redrawn to suite the customers requests.

The customer then approves these drawings. At that time a set of drawings are made to fit each crew that works on the jobsite. Solid Foundations, Inc. has a separate crew for each aspect of its operation. These crews work together on a daily basis. Their experience and skill level helps bring together the construction of a superior foundation. A typical project will start with a ''site lay-out'' between the lay-out crew member and the customer. The location of the dig will be marked and the height will be ''benchmarked'' at the site. The foundation site is then excavated by an excavator on day one. Day two, the footers are set and poured. The following morning the drainage tile is installed, and the wall crew usually sets and pours the foundation on day three. The next morning the forms are stripped and the wall coating is applied. Backfill is completed within a few days. Poured walls, due to the strength of the solid concrete, can be backfilled much quicker than block walls. A skid steer and mini excavator are used to backfill and install any utilities requested by the customer. A flatwork crew prepares the sub-base and pours basement and garage floors, porches, patios, sidewalks, driveways, and steps.
