It can be challenging to make a living as a contractor at the best of times. Material costs are constantly on the rise, qualified labor is getting harder to find, and your work schedule is at the whim of the housing market and mother nature.
While there have been a few innovations that have made the job easier and results more precise, there haven’t been many strides that have really revolutionized the industry at the ground level. That is until now.
One of the most difficult and time-consuming steps of a building project is pouring the footings and constructing the foundation. The time and work that goes into this process have, in great part, been reduced with the popularizing of slab-built homes and frost-protected shallow foundation designs. But, as we all know, it is still a tedious process that can take days to complete, even on small projects.
The site must be excavated and leveled, and then there is the forming, pouring of concrete, form removal, and backfill. In some cases, this process can be repeated multiple times. As a contractor, you understand that all this means a lot of wasted time and money spent.
However, there is a new method of pouring monolithic slabs that eliminates much of the time and labor. In fact, it reduces what once took days to complete to just a few hours of work. We are talking about Mono Slab® EZ Form.
The short answer to this question is money. The most obvious monetary benefit that Mono Slab® EZ Form offers is in terms of labor costs. By allowing you to form, insulate, backfill, and pour in one easy process, what normally amounts to days of work, can be accomplished in a matter of a few hours.
Beyond this, since Mono Slab® also functions as the insulation for the frost protected shallow foundation (FPSF), there is no need to strip the form or install insulation afterwards. It also completely eliminates the chance of cold bridges being formed by improper installation. Based on completed projects, when you incorporate Mono Slab® EZ Form you will save an estimated twenty percent cost saving overall, including labor, material costs, and time.
The financial benefits our system offers go beyond these initial savings. Shaving half a week off each project frees up your time to take on additional work. More contracts mean more profits and a chance to expand your operations.
It has never been easier to have a building site ready for framing in Colorado.
Now you are ready to install the flashing and begin framing. No forms to tear down, backfill to shovel in, or insulation to install.
There is no faster, safer, quicker, and more efficient way to create monolithic slabs. In our opinion, this is truly a game-changer. The ability to save days worth of work on every building project while simultaneously cutting costs and lightening his laborers’ workload is truly a dream for most contractors.
A nightmare is what gave birth to this system, and that may be why it is such a dream to use. It was created by a contractor who needed a way to keep his business alive and his family taken care of despite declining health.
No longer able to carry hundreds of metal stakes and brace boards, Lance Boyce developed this lightweight method of forming up slabs. Instead of finding a solution to one problem, Lance revolutionized the building process.
