Home Foundations

CONCRETE BLOCK FOUNDATIONS

Concrete block foundations offer numerous benefits. Blocks come in many colors and finishes that make differentiation easy. They are relatively affordable and flexible. They require no expensive, specialized equipment, and a competent crew of mason can lay a typical foundation in less than a day. Concrete blocks allow builders to stagger wall height, so steep inclines or declines are not a problem.

POURED CONCRETE FOUNDATIONS

Poured wall construction is adaptable to all home styles including ranches, duplexes, split levels, condominiums, and apartments. It can be finished in smooth or brick. Poured concrete fits in perfectly with today’s diverse styles. Efficient modem construction methods make poured wall basements cost competitive with block walls.

PRECAST INSULATED FOUNDATIONS

Precast Wall panels are designed for today's homes and provide a stronger, safer, watertight and easy-to-finish basement.  Installations generally take less than one day and are performed in most weather conditions.  The added value of a precast foundation is the time and material savings realized by finishing the basement into valuable living space. Each panel is a monolithic pour using a consistent batch of 5000psi fiber reinforced concrete. The interior of each panel is Insulated and Pre-Studded to provide the homeowner with a very energy efficient foundation that is ready to be finished into usable living space.

INSULATED CONCRETE FORMS (ICF’S)

At their most basic level, ICFs serve as a forming system for poured concrete walls. The ICFs remain in place and become part of the wall structure. The forms are made of expanded polystyrene (EPS), a material similar to that in styrofoam ice chests you can buy at the grocery store. The forms consist of two panels of EPS held together by plastic ties which are embedded into the foam to hold the form together.
