Recently, Superior Walls by Weaver Precast was featured on This Old House! Superior Walls’ Xi Plus wall panels are NGBS Green Certified which made them an ideal choice for This Old House’s 2018 Narragansett, Rhode Island, Idea House.

“The Team at Weaver Precast was honored to be a part of the construction of the 2018 Idea House in Narragansett, Rhode Island with This Old House. The use of our Xi Plus system will add to the energy efficiency of the Idea House and provide an extra space for living or storage in the home. Our whole team was, and continues to be, very excited about this project and the potential of working with This Old House on future projects!” – Janessa (Weaver Precast).
