Recommendations for Precast Concrete Suppliers

George Wise | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

Does anyone know of any precast concrete wall suppliers in Georgia? The closest one that I can find so far is out of Tennessee up near Nashville. I’m looking to have a 4 foot crawlspace built and so far it looks like it is less expensive to use precast concrete that is already insulated as opposed to the standard footer, wall pour, wall waterproofing, wall insulation, etc, etc..

Plan is to encapsulate it anyways and it seems to me that precast concrete eliminates a lot of the other individual steps.

Thanks..

    Thanks Martin, I just got off the phone with them. Unfortunately, they do not do residential basement walls.

      Have you tried contacting Carl Seville (Dekalb County, GA)? He may be able to help.

    George, Did you ever find a precast concrete crawl space wall supplier in Georgia? We currently live in Pennsylvania and have had a Superior Wall Foundation for over 27 years. Totally dry and wonderful! We will be building a new home in Savannah, Georgia in 2022 and want to find a precast concrete supply company for a crawl space. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    According to precast.org, Dixie PreCast in Austell does this and Smith Columbia in Hopkins, SC, which is probably closer to Savannah than Austell
    Please post back and let us know how this works out.

    CL, Thank you for this information. We will be meeting with the designer and builder over the next two weeks to discuss the foundation. We will be in touch with both of these companies. I will reply with our results. This was so appreciated!!

    CL, I was 0-2 with Dixie Precast (who stated that they only work with railroad ties) and Smith Columbia (who stated they only work with commercial slim walls and nothing with foundations/crawl spaces). I had some hope with Superior Walls (the company I used in Pennsylvania but the Carolina's are the furthest south they would go, not to Georgia. I'm grateful for your suggestions. We probably won't start our construction until February ... so I haven't totally given up yet!
