Clayboards


Postby mikehutch59 » Tue Sep 04, 2007 7:18 am

Hi,

We are about to concrete a new foundation,the building inspector has specified clay boards be used to counteract heave in our clay soil,when he inspected and passed the footings yesterday which are about 1.8m deep with a 150mm strip of greensand at the base,i asked how to place the boards in the trench,he said to pin them to the inside face of trench 500mm from the bottom of trench,surely this is too high?

Regards

Mike

Mmmmm. I would have thought he would have known what he is talking about really - wouldn't you?

Cheers
