We are looking at a new construction home. The house was complete in June of 2012. My question is, what do you guys do different in the base prep on new homes, if anything at all. Are you just excavating your base as normal? As long as youre not pulling up all kinds of debris do you just dig to your typical base depth, or are you automatically digging a deeper base? Last question, since the house already sat through a winter, should I not be as concerned with this issue? Thanks in advance.
