PLEASE PRINT THIS OUT AND HAND IT TO YOUR ENGINEER, YOUR BUILDER, YOUR SMART UNCLE, WHOEVER AND HAVE THEM DRAW A LINE VERTICALLY THROUGH ‘WHAT IS NOT IMPORTANT TO THEM’ AND THEN RE-TOTAL THE SCORES.  THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL ‘PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING’.  YOU CAN EVEN HAVE THEM CHANGE THE ‘NO’ TO A ‘YES’ IF THEY DON’T BELIEVE I’VE JUSTIFIED THE ‘NO’ CORRECTLY AND then RE-TOTAL AGAIN!  THEN …….

 

CALL ME, JOHN GRIFFIN, PE, ‘DIRECTLY’ IF ALL WALL IS STILL NOT THE HIGHEST SCORING ‘WALL SYSTEM WITH THE MOST BENEFITS’ ON THE MARKET TODAY WITH THE ‘LEAST COST TO THE HOME OWNER’.  MY NUMBER IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE!

 

 

By Analyzing the above Chart

The Best Wall, as determined from the Benefits that all 'Home' and 'Building' Owners want is:

 

The All Wall System

 

The Principal object of the All Wall, patented invention, is to provide a method of constructing concrete walls with as much unskilled labor as possible.

·        Only one skilled person/carpenter, and as many laborers as you want to meet project time schedules, is required to manage 1 to 5 homes, when building within a localized development.

·         

---   --  Benefits of the All Wall System making it THE BEST WALL  --   ---

All Wall is easy to install because it is light weight and requires no special fasteners

·        Everything you need to install is at the local hardware store

·        The panels fasten together with concrete, not dependent on welding and the joint/connection is not a ‘moment’, meaning will not move here when the wall is under a load such as high winds.

The concrete is placed into the form once it is erected on the slab, or stemwall, at the job site

·        All Wall makes a concrete wall that is totally code compliant.  

·        The plans do not take special engineers to design the home

·        you can use the same architects, or engineers that you have been using.

All Wall has high insulation properties that are "significantly better" than Foam Blocks (ICFs) per a National Lab that does research on wall systems for the Dept of Energy (DOE)  

·        All Wall has high thermal mass properties that provides savings over other mass systems, because the interior of the walls are concrete.

FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW FOR SUPPORT DOCUMENTATION BY “THE” NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED LABORATORY.  BUT, MORE IMPORTANTLY IS THE DOCUMENTED FACT THAT ‘ALL WALL ECO HOMEs’, FOR 6 YEARS DOCUMENTED, ARE PERFORMING AT A COST OF ENERGY OF 75% LESS THAN A CODE BUILT HOME, WITH ALL THE BENEFITS THAT NO OTHER SYSTEM CAN OFFER. (MOLD, FIRE, TERMITE, SPEED OF MANUFACTURING, SPEED OF INSTALLATION, MANPOWER not CRANES AND LIFTS, RESISTANCE TO WIND LOADS, ETC.)

LINK:  JUST THE TRUTH IN PLAIN DOCUMENTED “DEPT OF ENERGY” PROVEN TESTING IN LOCATIONS ALL ACROSS THE USA.

IE, Texas, Florida, Minneapolis, etc. AND if you want to read the direct testing results off their website you can do so from the link in the above hyperlink. 

 

All Wall has excellent structural qualities

·        that exceed standard concrete block construction, and up to 20 times stronger than wood framing without even trying!

All Wall is a fire resistant structure, by the properties of solid poured concrete, within the code,  it has a 2 hour fire rating

·        it is non-combustible and non-flammable
(standard concrete block homes AND WOOD HOMES do not meet this “safe” criteria)

All Wall requires minimum pesticide applications (no wood, insulation, or drywall boards to hold/absorb water)

·        better for allergy and asthma patients

All Wall creates the best sealed envelope you can get in construction, as the solid concrete fills the walls from the floor up to the top of the wall

·        better for allergy and asthma patients

All Wall is constructed in the manner that is considered by professionals in the industry to be the most mildew/mold resistant method (no wood, insulation, or drywall boards to hold/absorb water)

·        better for allergy and asthma patients

All Wall gives 2 1/4" more interior space around the inside of the exterior walls, than concrete blocks (width is 6 7/8" total) When comparing to ICFs you obtain 3 ¾” more interior space! 
 

All Wall is low cost ESPECIALLY when you consider the Benefits that All Wall gives you naturally. 

Benefits that other walls cannot give you.  For other systems to give you the "All Wall Benefits" the cost to you will be much more than they tell you.  Many times this happens like this; They will give you the cheap price, then you will talk to me and tell me I am more money. Then I tell you the benefits you get with the All Wall System and teach you that every month you are paying LESS money when you pay the “Mortgage plus the Energy Bills”.  You go back to the others and tell them you want these benefits, such as fire resistance and pest resistance and the energy efficiency and they tell you they can obtain all of this for you to. This is what you wanted to hear and you walk away happy with them.  What doesn’t happen is you didn’t ASK them what the additional costs are to get these things and they aren’t going to tell you unless you ask.  So, they let you go on thinking that you can get ‘close’ to the All Wall benefits for the same money.  Ooops!  For you to pay for any method of construction to get ‘close’ to the benefits the All Wall System™ gives you naturally, you will have to pay MORE money.(this is a big period!)

 

Conclusion:  The All Wall method of construction is a Better product that costs you Less.

NOTE:  The second best system is the ICF system per the chart above.  IF a licensed All Wall System manufacturer is located so far away from the job that the shipping makes the costs higher than the cost of the ICFs, then I suggest you use the local ICF suppliers and installers.  I have yet to find where the additional cost, contributed to the ICF completed wall of $2.00/SF, has made it so the All Wall System could not be shipped and still beat their price.

NOTE2:  The resistance of the local builders to change their method of construction may be the reason to use ICFs. It seems local carpenters can’t believe/ feel it/ understand it/ ‘relate to the FACT’ that they can be trained in less than 1 hour to install the All Wall system panels for any house in the world.  They are stuck on the fact that a carpenter has to be an apprentice for 3-5 years before they can frame a home, so the 1 hour TRAINING just …. “Freaks them out”, for lack of a better explanation. So, they just keep doing the same thing, hoping for better results.

What is the definition of Insanity again?
