Treated Wood Foundations & Basements

Made ready to install at the jobsite on your footer plate or ours

 

Benefits:

 

·Basements are warm and dry, giving you more square feet of living area that is as comfortable as above-grade.

·Easy to construct, using similar techniques to above-ground construction. 

·Can be installed in just about any weather condition, including freezing weather.

·Typically, a wood foundation insulated to R-20 costs about the same as an un-insulated concrete basement.

·Lower finishing costs, using wood basement studs to install insulation

·Energy efficient; concrete basements can account for as much as 35% of heat loss from a house.  The increased insulating value of wood foundations and basements can help make a building more energy efficient, saving money on heating costs.

·They are resistant to damage from cold weather and cracking, due to minor soil settlements.

·Environmentally friendly; modern treatment methods are nontoxic and safe for humans, plants and animals.  Wood is pressure treated to permanently lock in preservatives.

·Laboratory testing shows a lifetime of over 100 years with minimal deterioration, matching the lifetime of above-ground structures
