The walnut hill project features an insulating concrete form foundation wall. This highly energy efficient wall system offers homeowners an effective insulation value of R-30. Current residential construction codes require only R-13 insulation for exterior walls.
This insulating concrete form system combines an extremely durable 5,000 psi concrete wall, steel reinforcement, insulation, and a clean, flat surface for the attachment of interior and exterior wall finishes with seamless integration.
When coupled with a sealed, conditioned crawlspace, this foundation also offers significant advantages over conventional foundations in terms of air quality by eliminating the damp and musty crawlspaces to which many homeowners are accustomed.
