Foundations are playing an important role in preventing the buildings from external environmental factors. They transmit the load of the building to the ground. Thus it prevents the building from dead and imposed loads and keeps the stability of the building. Some type of soils is not suitable for foundation. Black cotton soil is one such type. They are expansive in nature, which causes cracks in the ground. Shallow foundation is better to construct in such soils. Piling can be done if required.
After laying foundation and constructing the building, roofing should be done. Roofs are playing an important role in keeping the water out. It prevents from damage and other problems to the building by repelling the water and directed it to suitable way. For roofing the colder regions, we want to make sure that whether the roof deck is an adhesive and impermeable membrane whereas in hotter regions it is better to construct asphalt shingle or hip roof which prevents the heat from entering the house.
