New Slab Pour

The video below shows a new concrete post-tension slab being poured.  The red cables are the post-tension cables and are used for strengthening the slab.  The deep trenches you see will become the interior grade beams of the house once they are filled with concrete.  These beams are what foundation repair companies hope to locate during the installation of interior piers.  Please note how the trenches aren’t exactly straight.  This can make location very difficult down the road.
