Jackson Homes will build concrete foundations but we specialize in (P.W.F) because it is a warmer, more efficient and affordable way to provide a living area for your house. It makes it much easier and affordable because the walls are already insulated and ready for drywall whereas cement foundation walls have to be built on the inside and insulated therefore costing more and taking up more usable space in your basement. Building times are decreased with a wood foundation speeding up the home building process. It’s the C.S.A approved P.W.F studs, sheathing, caulking and plastic that together, create a low moisture and warmer basement than a cement foundation.

They have been experimented on for over 50 years by the Canadian and U.S governments along with scientists and researchers and have been approved by the national building code of Canada.

Jackson Homes wants its customers to have the most living space available while keeping costs as minimal as possible and still maintaining an effective and durable house and foundation.
