Some benefits of poured concrete walls:

Adds Solid Value To Your Home – When the time comes to sell, concrete construction increases a home’s re-sale value. It’s much more appealing to buyers than wood-framed or even concrete block construction. Greater selling appeal means a quicker closing and more money in your pocket.

Provides Protection – From Termites and other pests that are prone to infesting wood-framed houses. Termites thrive in hot, humid climates – the very climate found in Florida. Termite insurance usually costs less for concrete homes, saving you money.

Energy Efficient – Cutting your energy bills is literally money in the bank. Especially now when energy costs are expected to soar above last years levels, it makes good economic sense to go with quality concrete construction.

No More Dry Rot – Wood framed houses with dry rot means costly repair bills. This can’t happen with our poured concrete walls. No dry rot means no unexpected and unwanted expenses.

Ecologically Friendly – Poured concrete absorbs heat, evening out temperature swings. Your home stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This not only saves energy but cuts your utility bills as well.

It’s Quiet! – Solid Concrete walls protect you from exterior noise pollution. With less outside distractions, you’ll get a better nights sleep and enjoy more peace and quiet during the day.

Proven Safer In Hurricanes And Tornadoes –  Debris carried in hurricane-force winds can easily tear right through wood-framed homes. But repairing that damage would be the least of your worries. You have your family’s safety to consider. Don’t risk it on wood framed construction.

Other Advantages:

Solid concrete is better able to resist cave-ins caused by lateral pressures of water, earth, and wind.

More fire resistance-because solid concrete is dense and is joint free.

More resistant to water-concrete has fewer and smaller voids than concrete block

Tests have conclusively shown that branches and other debris carried by hurricane-force winds cause no structural damage to concrete poured walls.
