The Problem With Poured Concrete Foundations
Mel Zimmerman, the founder of Superior Walls, was a builder by trade.
- water pooling around footings
- moisture penetrating walls
- concrete not curing completely
Which he knew could lead to:
- uneven settling and shifting of your home
- structural issues
- mold growth
Plus… poured concrete basements have a reputation for being damp and cold. Mel thought there must be a better option! In response to the problem of damp basements, Mel developed Superior Walls.
Superior Walls are pre-cast concrete walls, which are warmer, dryer, and stronger than their poured concrete counterparts. Superior Walls are custom built in a climate-controlled factory where they completely cure. The precast wall comes with steel reinforced concrete studs, R23 Neopor insulation, and includes a vapour barrier.
These walls make it easy for any electrician to pull wire through styrofoam channels integral to the studs. The concrete is 5000psi, and reinforced with millions of polypropylene fibres, creating a mixture impenetrable to water and leaves you with a dry basement for years to come. Superior Walls systems can make all the difference when investing in your dream home.
