At CNA Construction we believe strongly in the use of “Superior Walls” for the foundation. Please visit their website for an explanation of the many advantages of this product. The main advantage is the walls are stronger, they do not leak, they are completely insulated and ready to accept drywall, electric and plumbing when installed. The home has 9’ XI walls which increase overhead room in the basement. The XI wall superior wall top is the top of the line wall and is guaranteed by the Superior Wall Co. for 15 years. The only disadvantage to CNA is they are nearly double the cost of the traditional block wall.

Porches and Walks
The covered porches around the house represent approximately 850 square feet of covered porch. There are high hat lights in all the soffits, and exterior fans have been installed on all porches. The front porch has additional lights around the door and electric outlets are available on all porches. The concrete on the porches and patio walks is a colored concrete with stamped plank boarders on all the walks and the rear patio. This is a 3 step process: first the colored concrete is poured, and during the pour the stamps are installed. Later on in the process we color the boarders and color seal the concrete. The rear patio is approximately 800 square feet.
