5 Benefits of Having a Poured Wall Foundation
Strength—Poured concrete walls have a compression and flexural strength (web search these if you’re not an engineer) several times that of block and far beyond the required safety factor.
Water resistance—The increased strength, density and joint-free construction of poured walls dramatically reduce basement water problems. A water-tight basement means fewer service issues for builders… and happier homeowners to boot.
Fire resistance—Solid wall construction affords at least twice as much protection against fire as hollowcore concrete block.
Design flexibility—Poured wall techniques are adaptable to most home designs and can even be poured in brick or smooth finish.
Maintenance—Poured wall construction is virtually maintenance-free.
