Answer: 8-10 inches
Explanation: A "Slab-on-grade concrete foundation" is an atypical term. Typically, the foundation is thought of as being comprised of elements of Spread, Strip, Turndown, and Deep Bearing footings, with the slab representing the floor of the building. Although it is not abnormal to build the floor and footings in a single monolithic piece, the footings are generally considered to function as the foundation, while the slab functions as the floor. Monolithic slabs vary in thickness from 4" in non-load bearing portions of the floor, to 24" in load bearing portions.
