Superior Walls Insulated Precast Foundations

Superior Walls insulated precast foundations is a clean simple approach.  Legendary Homes offer these insulated pre-cast foundations and highly recommend them.  There are many advantages.

Just like modular homes, they are built in a factory, cast in a horizontal position using high strength concrete.  Much stronger than a traditional foundation. It’s more dimensionally stable.    The shell themselves are a couple inches thick but the walls, the structural members are 10 1/4″ thick and incorporates reinforcing steel rebar in the studs.

Energy Efficient Insulated Precast Basement

The Dow Styrofoam is built right into the walls.  Legendary Homes uses XI walls which have an R-12.5, so it exceeds Michigan energy code of R-10 insulation.  They are very energy efficient.

Each foundation is pre-engineered individually for each home and designed for each particular house.

Joints are sealed with a polyurethane sealant, specially formulated for application for this type of concrete and they use a bead on the exterior and a bead on the interior of the panel at the seems.

Superior Walls uses a 5,000 psi concrete mix, which has a water concrete ratio of .4 to provide a high strength mix.   A poured wall foundation typically would use 2,500 to 3,000 psi.

When the panel is cast at the factory there is an embedded saddle bolt assembly that’s embedded into the lower and upper bond beam.  A 1/2 diameter bolt is used to hold the panels together.

The shell is 1 3/4″ but the overall structure is 10 1/4″  The walls have a concrete stud and use a steel plate (in the Xi walls) for securing drywall when finishing the basement.

The following video shows Bob Villa talking to Jim Costello from Superior Walls on a job site of a new construction home.


So, if this were your video: https://www.youtube.com/embed/bC0syKkXY-M

 

Bob Vila asked about if there were any concerns to worry about with settlement.  Settlement is no more of a concern with this system than it is with any other type of foundation such as a poured wall foundation.  You do need to be concerned with what your soils are but it’s not any different than any other concrete wall.

Superior Walls set on a crushed stone footing of around 6 inches for a firm base.

Soil pressure on the outside is something to be aware of.  The walls are very rigid so there are very specific directions for the connection of the floor system to the top of the wall.  The walls are fully engineered to withstand the backfill pressure, but it’s important to pour the floor and properly fasten the floor system of the house before backfilling in order to make a rigid box.

The walls are squared at the time of completing the last panel.

Insulated Precast Concrete Basement

The prefabricated foundation is built in a factory just as a modular home so weather is not an issue.  They are poured in a plant in a controlled atmosphere where they pour the concrete.

The concrete studs have holes for wiring and secondary plumbing making it easier to run electrical and plumbing in the basement.  The walls are ready for drywall, which is a big advantage.

Costs have been running about the same as a poured wall basement which makes it the way to go.
Legendary Homes has been using Superior Walls for many years and they are differently a “Superior foundation”. In Michigan, basements need to be at least R-10 to meet energy codes and the Xi walls more than exceeds the energy code. Highly recommended!

Our price sheets include the costs for a full 9-foot basement with an egress window and an escape well along with a standard size basement window. Plumbing and electrical hook-ups and permit fees are also shown on the costs. The price sheets show the cost of a well and a standard septic system.

Everything is itemized out so you can see exactly what’s included in the costs to build a new home. We show prices for a few different floor plans so that you can get a good “ballpark” idea of the costs to build a new house. Something to keep in mind when looking over the prices is if you want something bigger then just know that you will need to figure a little more then the costs for the size of the price sheet you are looking at. If you plan on building smaller then it will be less costly. If you add more options/upgrades it will cost more if you take some off then it will cost less.

Once you have a floor plan picked out and know where you are going to build, please let Todd know and he can get prices figured up for your particular situation with the features you want.

If you would like a copy of the options forms just let us know and we can email that to you so you can get started with deciding what upgrades you will want, to make it easier in determining the total costs.

Trends in Modular Home Construction in Michigan

Modular Home Customization with Legendary Homes Inc.The construction of a modular home has been making waves for several years. Many companies have clamored to keep up with the demands of high quality construction results.

Today, there are trends that make modular home dealers in Michigan busy.

Requirement for Turn-key Solutions

When the modules are prefabricated they are transported to site ready to ‘plug and play’ into the main modular home in Michigan. This leaves only localized finishes and vertical and horizontal service reticulation through the communal areas to complete, simplifying the need for on-site trades and significantly shortening construction time.

The trend of turn-key solutions is increasing in the residential where a high repetition of rooms and layouts is prevalent.

Tight Modular Home Construction Schedule

Projects on confined sites with restricted access are increasingly turning to modular home solutions to ease site construction constraints and tight time frames. Time dedicated to ‘wet’ trades including cement and plaster can be reduced, as well as decreased requirements for other in-situ trades such as form and reinforcement workers.

Reduced Construction and Labor Costs

Constructing a development in a regional or remote location often means increased labor charges, material supply elongation and sometimes quality issues. However prefabrication of modular home‘s modules, significantly reduces this cost and risk as modular solutions are transported directly to site and are complete.

Construction Quality Control

Offshore factory prefabrication is extremely cost effective due to lower labor and material costs and is becoming increasingly prevalent. Prefabrication of modular home in a controlled factory environment exercises a great degree of control over construction quality compared to on-site workmanship, thereby reducing risk.

Mistakes in Modular Home Construction and Easy Ways to Avoid Them

In a modular home Modular Home Construction Jackson MIconstruction process, you cannot help but make mistakes. These pitfalls are usually minor ones and can be avoided by applying certain techniques.

Hiring a Wrong Modular Home Company

It is inevitable that you will work with the incorrect modular home company. Often this mistake is initiated by the immediate need of a home. You should not hire the first modular company you saw because you are ‘encouraged’ by their work and price. Be a wise home buyer. Search for three to five companies and compare their offers on modular home construction. The company with excellent credentials and bids diligently must be your choice.

Choosing a Contractor Based on Low Price Deal

Modular homes are not always constructed on lesser cost. Do not be afraid to ask what is included in the price. If the presented cost only includes the modular home, then you must price out the home preparation work. The entire modular home construction cost should also include the excavation, septic system, foundation, electrical, mechanical, permits, well, and other necessary prerequisites before you take delivery of your home. Review everything on the list so that your home will be built to the quality level you expect and includes all the necessary items to complete your project.

You Do Not Forsee the Landscaping Fees

Modular homes need to be installed on cleared lots. This requires homeowners to remove any grass, debris and trees before a module can be brought in. Not doing this beforehand can delay installation or cause construction crews to work overtime due to obstacles. Be smart and make informed decisions concerning the cost of landscaping vs. the extra cost of setting the home if you have not properly cleared the building lot. It will often be cheaper and more attractive to clear the land and then paying a landscaper to replace any lost grass and shrubbery.

Todd was a pleasure to meet with...We've been looking for quite some time to purchase a home, but this seller market has been tough, so we decided to look into modular homes. Todd was able to get us into a consultation quickly, answered all the questions we had for beginners, broke down the pricing and potential unanticipated costs, and presented us with a great deal of material to go home with and review. Eventhough we were able to get an offer accepted on a home within a couple days of meeting with Todd, we will definitely be considering a modular home with Legendary Homes for our future purchase. Thanks Todd!

I cannot say enough good things about Todd Rutledge & Legendary Homes. I was frustrated with the running around, people trying to take advantage of my lack of knowledge and the time that I had to spend researching what I needed to do in order to make my move a reality. Then I found Todd. He gave me the information & tools that I needed, he understood & worked with my budget & he showed great professionalism. He was timely & considerate. But most of all, he showed great integrity. I know that I can trust him to look out for my families best interest. He went above and beyond. Thank you Todd!!

I appreciated Todd taking the time to speak with me at the model house about the various options and things to consider when building a home. He was clear, direct, and easy to work with. Legendary Homes works with Redman Homes, which offers solid construction and just a few decisions to make in terms of finishes. For those who get analysis paralysis, this is a blessing! Definitely worth a look if a solid, simple home is the goal.
