This is a duplicate to my inquiry on the foundations forum. I am looking for comments and feedback about a relatively new product called Viroc.

We are in negotiations to build a home near the water in NJ. The house will be built on pilings and the plan calls for a cement beam with block up to the house deck. However, the builder insists that this was not included in the house specs and he wants to put up a pressure treated plywood skirt. Aside from the aesthetics, I am really unhappy with this situation. After spending an hour or two on line doing some research, I came across this product called Viroc. It would seem to me that this might be a much better solution than the plywood and will certainly save us thousands of dollars compared to masonary.

Thanks in advance for any assistance with this inquiry!

You may want to consider Armoroc, It's very similar to the Viroc.
