Crimson Construction LLC Relies on Superior Walls Precast Concrete Foundations
NEW HOLLAND, PA. – For the past three years, when it’s time for Crimson Construction, LLC to start constructing a custom home in the Florham Park area of New Jersey, this builder’s first step is to pick up the phone to call Northeast Precast. According to Laura DeLuca with Crimson Construction, beginning with a Superior Walls precast concrete foundation is key to a home’s overall success.
“I keep coming back to Superior Walls because it’s a proven winner,” says DeLuca. “There’s no curing process involved and each wall comes to the jobsite insulated and ready to install. Many of our homeowners use us to finish the basement for them and the Superior Walls products makes this a fast project.”
Crimson Construction specializes in custom-built homes in the one million to two million dollar price range.
“Some years we build more than 10 homes, and every one of them starts with a Superior Walls Xi foundation,” says DeLuca. “We rely on this foundation because it’s faster and better than hand-built masonry.
“With masons there are too many variables. The process is too long and the results are not within our control. There can be ongoing issues with leaks and shifting of the foundation. Superior Walls are consistent and reliable — and the homeowners love the ‘almost finished stage’ the basements are in when they move into their homes.”
In addition to individual homes, Crimson Construction LLC has just completed a townhome project in Berkley Heights that includes nine different units. The entire project started with a Superior Walls precast concrete foundation that was installed in just a day.
“We appreciate the pre-determined holes in the steel portions of the Superior Walls panels for electric outlets that ensures the stability of the product is not compromised by an electrician mistakenly drilling holes through the concrete studs,” says DeLuca. “In our years of using them, these walls have never leaked and they keep the temperature reasonable without any heat or air. We’ve found them to be extremely energy efficient. Best of all, we’ve never had a single complaint on any home and our customers tell us they love this foundation.”
