PWF Permanent Wood Foundations

Permanent Wood Foundations

A permanent wood foundation (PWF) is a better way to build a basement.

Basically a below grade stud wall built of preservative-treated plywood and lumber, a PWF is just like any other foundation system. It supports the structure and encloses space. PWFs are suitable for all types of light frame construction including single family detached houses, townhouses, low rise apartments, and institutional and commercial buildings. A permanent wood foundation is a strong, durable and contemporary building foundation that has a number of unique advantages over other foundation systems both for the builder and the homeowner. Thousands of PWF homeowners across North America are delighted with the comfort and liveability of their homes, as well as with the economies realized by this energy efficient system of building.

  • Energy saving
  • Year round comfort
