Pros and Cons of Pre-Cast Foundations
Custom builders don't use them and rely instead on tried and true poured concrete foundations or concrete block foundations.
Superior walls have their limitations among which are their inability to be altered to, for example, add windows, doors, or other modifications to the basement.
Every Superior Walls foundation is custom designed for each particular house. There are no openings or configurations that cannot be made for your next foundation.
In the Cincinnati area, Superior Walls were first adopted by very high-end custom home builders for probably the very same reason that modular builders in "homebild"'s area use them: SUperior Walls are a better foundation in every aspect than poured-in-place, block, or ICF - period.
The limitation on their use by your next homebuilder is ignorance of the product.
In addition, the custom builder who has part ownership in the local cincinnati franchise has had to declare bankruptcy from losing a lawsuit over the Superior Wall system.
