8 Pre-insulated (added value over traditional foundations) Pre-studded (cavity for additional insulation) Easy to finish (Galvanized lath and precast access holes) Guaranteed 15 years Superior Building Features & Benefits

9 Water-tight and damp proof (5,000+ psi concrete) Built-in steel reinforced concrete footer Crushed stone sub-footer drains water away Rigid insulation is a vapor barrier and thermal break Superior Building Features & Benefits
