Optional Foundation vs. Traditional Block or Poured Walls
Foundation walls and basements can be the coldest dampest places in the home. One option many of our clients are choosing is Superior Walls. Superior Walls has been the world leader in custom residential precast concrete foundation systems since 1981. Their product creates comfortable living space, not just basement space, while lowering energy costs. That’s why Superior Walls are in demand as the superior foundation for new custom homes.
When provided with 1/2″ of Dow® THERMAX™ insulation and 4-1/2″ of rigid foam insulation, the Xi Plus Wall system has an insulation value of R-21.3. That’s a tremendous R-Value for your basement.
Four insulated access holes are now included in each standard stud to provide greater ease in wiring and plumbing. The Xi Plus also comes with a four inch insulated bottom footer beam. The 4″ standard floor slab may be poured equal to the height of the footer beam, eliminating the need for an additional screed board, saving time and money in the construction process.
