Type of foundation wall
For several decades in the middle of the 20th century, concrete block (CMU) foundation walls were very common. Since then, Poured Concrete has become more popular for new homes. Alternatives to Poured-in-Place Concrete foundation walls include both Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) and Precast Concrete Systems. Advantages of these two alternatives include increased thermal and moisture resistance. Verify if there are local installers who have experience with either of these systems if you are interested. Also research the relative price well in advance of the construction phase.
Select your foundation wall:
__ CMU (Concrete Masonry Unit, often referred to as concrete block)
__ Poured-in-Place Concrete
__ Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)
__ Precast Concrete System ( ie. Superior Walls)
