Poured concrete offers solid performance in basement wall construction.
The solution to today's foundation needs is cast-in-place concrete. Poured concrete walls provide builders and owners with stronger, drier, better basements. They offer performance that block walls simply can't match. And they do it at a competitive price. Solid concrete walls save you time and money.
Poured walls have a compressive and flexural strength several times that of block and far beyond the required safety factor.
The increased strength, density, and joint-free construction of poured walls dramatically reduce basement water problems.
Solid wall construction affords at least twice as much protection against fire as hollow core concrete block.
Poured wall techniques are adaptable to most home designs and offer the choice of either brick or smooth finishes.
Poured wall construction is virtually maintenance free.
Poured Concrete Walls
Poured concrete walls are fast and easy to build.
When compared to block construction, a concrete wall goes up fast, increases productivity and results in a superior basement time after time.
Solid concrete walls
save you time and money.
Pouring concrete basements takes considerably less time than block construction. "Roughing in" can begin sooner. Ready-Mixed concrete can also adapt to cold weather construction, giving builders an extended construction season.
1st Day - the footings are formed and the concrete placed.
2nd Day - A crew sets forms and pours the wall.
3rd Day - The crew returns and removes the forms. The project is ready for the next stage of construction. The timetable on a similar wall for concrete block may take up to five days or more.
***Concrete can take up to 30 days to fully cure and reach max strength depending on factors such as weather, thickness, mix, ect. There would be an inherent risk of damaging the concrete wall if backfilled prior to the concrete reaching full strength****
