Blake Tomford of Superior Walls talked with us about the amazing product being used for the crawl space foundation in the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Sussex County build.
“Our insulated concrete foundation system was installed in 20 minutes with our crew of 14, and is pre-framed and ready to finish,” says Blake. The concrete sections were lowered with a crane, one at a time, and secured with a custom blend adhesive. “The concrete we use is impervious to moisture, too, and comes with a 15-year warranty,” says Blake.
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has used Superior Walls’ product in four of its builds this year. “They were looking for a fast setting product, and we were the only solution,” says Blake. “And, we like to support such a great cause,” he said.
Superior Walls’ pre-formed concrete foundation systems meet or exceed the industry’s most stringent new green building home standards. Their new X-1 product is R-12.5 rated and is Certified NHB (National Association of Homebuilders) Green.
Offered in crawl space and full height sizes, Superior Walls’ foundation system is manufactured and sold through 15 independently owned and operated facilities.
