When its proprietary foundation system was placed late last year as the basement of a Pennsylvania home, Superior Walls of America marked a milestone: 85,000 below-grade installations. Available nationwide through franchises in 26 states, Superior Walls foundations have been installed since 1981 when the company introduced the original R-5 precast foundation system.
During a time when the housing industry is experiencing a sustained downturn, we are experiencing growth in market share, notes Aaron Schoeneberger, director of marketing for Superior Walls. We believe there are several reasons for our continued growth: First, our panel systems are environmentally sensible and energy efficient, which benefits the homeowner. Second, the systems install in a day, saving jobsite time and labor. Third, builders are currently seeking out unique products that position them competitively in the marketplace; and, Superior Walls foundation systems allow builders to offer their customers warm, dry basements that can be used for added living space.
