We are now carrying Lightweight Drywall ! It is 30% lighter, comes in 8',10'and 12' sheets , is easier to cut and will span 24" centers. All for the same price as regular drywall !
We stock an inventory of cement blocks. The sizes range from 4" to 12". Concrete blocks are 16" long. You can either buy small quantities out of our yard or we can arrange with the manufacturer to have full house loads shipped directly to your site. (See attached photo). Generally, in this truckload situation, we need 2 or 3 days advance notice. We can calculate the number of blocks that you need including the corner blocks.
We also stock the necessary cement and forming boards. If you need a contractor, you can refer to our "Contractor Referrals" section of our menu unde r" Foundations".
As you can see from the picture, we also can rent you the necessary scaffolding for the job. Our design department can figure out the size of block that you will require. There are a number of factors but the backfill height is one of the most important issues.
Drainage Products and Accessories
With a multitude of sizes, shapes, coatings and materials options, Armtec’s corrugated steel pipe (CSP) and related products offer unparalleled versatility and flexibility in designing drainage solutions. In addition, corrugated steel pipe has distinct advantages over other materials because of its light weight, strength, ease of installation, low maintenance and adaptability to various field conditions.
CSP is manufactured from pre-coated steel coil, corrugated and formed into pipe. The range of coatings includes galvanized steel, aluminized steel type 2 and a polymer-laminated coating. Steel thickness and corrugation profile depend on the type of structure, height of cover and live load over the structure.

SUPERSEAL Dimpled Membrane is an extremely durable, inexpensive and easy to use waterproofing membrane. It can be used on all types of foundations and does not require any additional coatings. It is manufactured to the largest and widest variety of roll sizes, worldwide.
SUPERSEAL Dimpled Membrane is made from tough, long lasting plastic that keeps exterior moisture out. It prevents backfill material from touching the foundation wall and bridges typical wall cracks with ease. The dimples in the membrane create a drainage space that allows the wall to breathe. It keeps 100% of the headwater pressure off the face of the wall. This space allows moisture to condensate outward on to the membrane. By gravity, the moisture then falls to the footing drain for removal.
