The benefits of pre-fab walls over concrete block and poured cement are numerous. Besides being a faster and more precise foundation construction method, the formed panels are delivered to the job site intact and set crews unload and position in perfect placement.
The walls are also pre-insulated and prepared with aluminum nailers with ports for wiring and plumbing. This makes finishing and insulating a basement to new HERS specifications easier, which can save thousands.
Deep footings are also not necessary, a costly excavation task, with the panel walls being set on just 12″ of peat gravel.
Once the slab is poured everything locks together and is water tight. When considering the type of foundation for your new home, it’s hard to stand against the benefits of US factory made foundation panels.
