PlastiForm® CFS: Green Foundations Made Easy

Are you doing everything that you can to save money on your foundation projects? Think about it: how many trips does it take you to transport enough lumber for an average job – two or three, if you’re lucky? What if you could create perfect foundations every time without nails, screws or tools – in virtually any size, shape and radius you can imagine?

plastiform stair forms 02 smPlastiForm® Boards are just ¼ the weight of lumber – a single 2×4 board is a stunning 8 ounces per linear foot, and a 2×6 board weighs just a little less than 13 ounces per linear foot. They’re reusable, resilient and come with a lifetime guarantee, allowing you to reduce waste, labor and time spent on every job.

How Much Money Are You Throwing Away?

Consider this: how much money are you spending on throwaway materials by the end of every project? A couple hundred? A thousand? More? Even if the client is paying for materials out of their own pocket, it’s all profit flying away in the back of a truck headed for the landfill.

Metal forms like aluminum forming boards can be a great, reusable alternative to concrete, but they warp and buckle over the time. They have to be stored carefully or they rust, and when they break they can cut fingers and create an uneven form.

Reduce Time and Labor by as Much as 75%

How much time are you and your crew spending on prep and forming concrete foundations? Think about all that time cutting, staking, screwing and hammering things down to make sure it’s just right.

What about stacking your boards on top of each other? If your materials aren’t uniform, you never know what you’re going to get. When it comes to lumber and aluminum concrete forming boards, they just don’t cut it.

But PlastiForm® Boards do. Each board is made with white, high-quality virgin HDPE, the same plastic that’s perfect for every use. They not only don’t break, peel, splinter, warp or split, they also come with a lifetime guarantee.

What Could You Do?

plastiform pateo 02 smWhat if you could have a concrete forming material that’s not only as strong as lumber, but as flexible as aluminum – but with the durability of plastic?

Stack them high for foundations and retaining walls, stripping the forms as soon as your concrete won’t slump. The smooth, non-stick, non-porous material leaves glass-like finishes on each side of your foundation, smooth and clean without polishing.

But with the flexibility and durability of this material, you’re not limited to boxy foundations and stairs – you could easily create rounded, radial forms for dramatic effects without compromising integrity.

PlastiForm® Boards pay for themselves within 4 uses, and they reduce down time and labor by as much as 75%! Want to find out more about what else the PlastiForm® Concrete Forming System can do for you? Visit plastiformcfs.coml today.
