Benefits of Poured Concrete Foundations

Poured concrete walls provide builders and owners with stronger, drier, better basements. They offer performance that block walls simply can’t match, at a competitive price.

Strength:
Poured walls have a compressive and flexural strength several times that of block and far beyond the required safety factor.

Water Resistance:
The increased strength, density, and joint-free construction of poured walls dramatically reduce basement water problems. A water-tight basement means less call backs for the builder or developer… less warranty problems.

Fire Resistance:
Solid wall construction affords at least twice as much protection against fire as hollow core concrete block.

Design Flexibility:
Poured wall techniques are adaptable to most home designs and offer the choice of either brick or smooth finishes.

Maintenance Ease:
Poured wall construction is virtually maintenance free.
