Duraskirt™ is a hand-made product and when installed properly is made to resemble a poured-in-place foundation wall. For this reason air bubbles, small voids, color variations in both Traditional Smooth and Northwest Aggregate is considered normal. True also are variations in exposed aggregate depths. Although these kinds of conditions may exist, they in no way affect the structural integrity.
Formed residential concrete flatness tolerances of 1/4" to 3/8" are considered industry standard and thus these tolerances may be found when installing Duraskirt™ panels. Because Duraskirt™ is made of concrete, minor corner chips are expected and can be repaired following standard concrete repair methods. These same repair methods are used to adjoin panels together around the perimeter of the home to give the poured-in-place foundation look.
"In most cases Duraskirt™ exceeds industry standards in foundation appearances because we are the highest volume foundation skirting made in the USA."
