Is construction of a plinth beam necessary while building a home? Check out the steps to make a plinth beam and save your wall from cracks.
Plinth beam is an RCC structure placed between the walls and foundation of a home. Plinth beam provides even support to the walls of a home. If the #plinthbeam is not constructed right, there are chances that cracks might appear on the walls.
It is mandatory to construct a plinth beam in flood-prone areas. Without it, there is a risk of the weakening and collapsing of the walls. Lets understand the right way to construct a Plinth beam.
Normally concrete of minimum M20 grade is used in the construction of a plinth beam. The depth of the beam should be at least 200mm and the upper surface of the beam should be higher than that of the ground.
Before pouring concrete, the position of the shuttering should be fixed firmly. The steel rods should be given a covering of 25mm and proper compacting of the concrete should be done.
Always remember the proper curing of the beam is also very important.
