What Are Stem Wall Slabs?
Stem walls are supporting structures that are utilized as a way of joining the base of a building with all the vertical walls built around the base. The wall is usually assembled with the use of concrete and steel, and works with the foundational slab to create a stable basis for the building. As well as establishing foundational integrity for the building, these walls also aid in the aesthetics of the house by raising the foundation up from the ground.
Stem wall slabs are raised slabs much like a crawl space except they use poured walls that are backfilled with slab poured on top. Stem wall slabs can save time and money over block and wood framing in residential applications.
