Superior Walls-The Energy Efficient Foundation

At Absolute Construction and Development we love working with Superior Walls for many reasons.  Drainage is essential with a basement.  Superior Walls sit on rock above ground with drain pipes for any water to be able to easily exit.  They are structurally sound, pre-water-proofed, pre-drilled for electrical and pre-insulated so no additional framing is needed to accommodate wiring and insulating.

Originally created as the energy-efficient alternative to traditional foundation methods, Superior Walls products have revolutionized the home building industry. Available for installation year-round in all types of weather, the foundation panels are custom-designed and built to provide warm, dry basements for homeowners – even in the harshest climates.

Whether it’s caused by a utility power interruption or weather disasters, power outages are frequent occurrences. Yet we depend on power more than ever. A power outage is more than an inconvenience.  Loss of power sends families  to motels and restaurants. Basements flood when sump pumps have no power. It’s not uncommon to have multiple power outages each winter and it is beneficial it is to have a generator wired to the house to automatically kick in to turn on pre-defined items such as refrigerator, septic, well, heat, and lights in specific rooms.

Absolute goes above and beyond when wiring your home!

Wiring is one of the most difficult items to identify upfront to ensure that the contract price includes all the wiring the homeowner anticipates.  Many builders price their contracts on basic wiring or even just to code. This creates the need for change orders and added expenses.  Absolute Construction’s base pricing includes wiring far and above the basic code taking in account for additional receptacles, switches and recessed lights in addition to wiring and hanging ceiling fans in all bedrooms, living rooms and covered porches, under cabinet lights, dedicated circuit in garage, wall mounted TV receptacles, flood lights, USB outlets and pendant lights.  We often add an allowance line item for additional wiring to cover items that come up in the walk through that weren’t anticipated during the contract pricing.
