Poured Concrete Walls & Foundations / Structural Work, Concrete Pouring
Poured concrete walls vs. concrete block
The foundation for your house or business is the most important investment you can make in your investment. Poured concrete offers a stronger, more durable foundation for your construction project.
Concrete Block Foundation
Unlike poured concrete, concrete block foundations over time can bow, settle, crack and are more susceptible to water leakage through their joints. If the concrete block foundation isn't properly filled with steel rebar and concrete then it will be weak, structurally unsound and have little insulation value.
Poured Concrete Walls
More and more builders are choosing poured concrete walls over concrete block foundations.
Advantages of Concrete Poured Walls
- Poured concrete walls hold up better against ground and water pressure
- Poured concrete walls are versatile allowing you to shape them as desired
- Poured concrete walls are adaptable and can be further adjusted or touched up while drying
- Poured concrete walls are easier to waterproof
- Poured concrete walls are generally done faster than building concrete block foundations
What Makes Concrete Pouring Stronger?
Poured concrete walls are joint-free and typically 8-12 inches thick which makes them denser, stronger, drier and fire-resistant which is crucial for the front range. A poured concrete foundation can better withstand cave-ins created by lateral pressures from the ground, water and wind.
Cost Savings, Energy Efficiency, and Longevity With Poured Concrete
Concrete pouring is better able to withstand wind, water, and ground pressure, it also offers also greater energy efficiency with its superior strength and durability.
Since poured concrete can withstand these pressures, you can rely on this work for a longer period of time. This can save on future repair costs and expenses on the foundation of your house.
There is nothing more reliable, durable, and safe than a poured concrete wall!

By offering lateral support to vertical slopes, a retaining wall can hold back soil for a multitude of reasons, including leveling terraces to add landscaping, eliminating hard-to-mow slopes and provide solutions to drainage and erosion problems.
There are some places throughout the front range that require additional storage options for water tanks or cisterns. Cellars provide large underground rooms for those needs as well as doubling as safety shelters, hot-water tank and HVAC system rooms.
Finishing a basement is absolutely the best way to generate a more livable space. Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska all have high wind areas. Basements are excellent for anchoring a property to the ground by extending the foundation below the area’s frost line. This helps maintain the integrity of the foundation over time.
Every job big or small can have obstacles when it comes to the placement of concrete. Our 32 boom pump truck allows us to easily move the necessary amount of concrete from the truck to where it is needed on the job site with ease.
