Concrete foundations are becoming standard in the industry. Perma-Column is a convenient, durable and economical concrete-based foundation option to offer as part of your building package. By elevating wood columns away from conditions that may cause deterioration, Perma-Columns are proven to outperform wood in the ground. The only material that comes in contact with the soil is concrete.
Sure, treated wood posts buried in soil have been the standard in post-frame construction for years. However, customers will always worry about rot and ultimately the longevity of their structure. Offer a standard concrete foundation, and give your customers peace of mind while separating you from the competition. Perma-Column is the least expensive way to build any kind of building on concrete. So you can demand a premium for your services, and your customers still get a great value.
Primarily composed of concrete, Perma-Columns will last virtually forever — and keep their value — with minimal care. That’s why we offer a lifetime guarantee.
By using the latest in SCC pre-casting technology, Perma-Columns are three times the strength of standard concrete. Microfibers add shock resistance and durability. Microsilicia enhances flexural, compressive strength and erosion resistance. A corrosion inhibitor protects the rebar reinforcement from rusting, and a final admixture is added to give to give freeze-thaw protection.
Easy to install.
No field assembly required. With an innovating uplift system, no ready-mix concrete is needed for installation. The durability of concrete with the efficiency of post-frame construction.
A lifetime warranty.
As a permanent foundation system, your building will have the best value and long-term integrity possible.
Save on operational costs.
No need to carry inventory. Perma-Columns (precast lower sections) are attached to the wood columns ahead of time in a controlled shop environment, and then shipped to the job site alongside trusses, steel panels and other building components.
