Information for Homeowners

For superior new home comfort, Superior Walls foundations are custom-designed and built to demanding specifications to be dry, warm and smart. Superior in every way. Because when your new home is built with Superior Walls, you can enjoy increased building efficienciesówith your assurance of superior living.

DRY.

Superior Walls' special 5,000+ psi concrete mix is moisture resistant. Because additional damp proofing is not required, this can help you save both time and money. With the specified crushed stone sub-footer and perimeter drain, water will be directed away from your foundation, helping to keep your home dry. With our patented technologies and superior manufacturing methods, our basements are the very finest in the world and guaranteed for 15 years.*

WARM.

Research indicates that over 20% of your new home's heat loss can occur through your basement walls. That's why Superior Walls foundations feature a continuous layer of insulation bonded directly to the concrete, resulting in high energy efficiency to help you reduce energy costs. Our walls have treated wood nailers built into the concrete studs so you can easily increase the amount of insulation without any need to install additional framing.

SMART.

The building industry's leaders are building today's new homes with Superior Walls. Certified trained crews install our superior systems typically in just five hours, in virtually any weather. Your builder can save valuable time building your home with the dry, warm, smart, superior solution.

SUPERIOR.

Superior Walls are created in a controlled factory environment to ensure that your new home's foundation will be built to the industry's highest standards. The concrete is reinforced with steel rebar, making it stronger than traditional foundations. And Superior Walls can be customized to nearly any architecture, providing you with a maximum of home design flexibility.
