WarmFörm is a Frost Protected Shallow Slab that eliminates digging footings, and greatly reduces the amount of earthwork required to create a house foundation. Two workers can typically install WarmFörm for an average size house in a day. Prep for radiant heating and reinforcing bars might take two more days. At the end of day three you can be ready for concrete.There is no formwork to strip or remove since WarmFörms remain in place. Est cost is $25/lin ft.
