What does your company do?
PRODUCT OVERVIEW: We sell a cost-effective patented building foundation system which protects the home from damaging caused by active soil (clay soils that expand and contract with wet or dry conditions) giving the homeowner the assurance of a worry-free foundation.
HOW IT WORKS - The mechanism is installed on top of piers under the concrete slab at the time of new construction. When the concrete hardens, the mechanisms elevate the slab or foundation off the ground (like a low cost pier and beam) and isolates the foundation from active clay soils or even from light earthquakes and eliminates movement in the house.
WHY ITS A GAME CHANGER: When the home is built suing our foundation system, the homebuilder provides the homeowner with a worry free foundation that performs and out last any other slab on grade foundation. Typical issues like cracking brick, doors that stick, and costly foundation repairs are virtually eliminated. This engineered foundation system is the next generation in the design of foundations which started with reinforcement using re-bar, then to post-tension cables, and now to the advancement of the elevated slab system.
