Sounds so cliche but it’s really what makes a house strong and efficient. A quick look and you can notice the difference in Jug Mountain Ranch Net Zero Home foundation:
We start with Insulating Forms for our foundation walls–this keeps cold from ever penetrating the concrete and keeps your house that much warmer.
Then a layer of high density foam under the entire floor wraps the foundation in a warm blanket of tough insulation.
The foam layer is also a vapor barrier so never need to worry about moisture or mold. It is also a radon barrier and keeps the indoor air healthy.
