We Build Solid Foundations
As the first major step in the homebuilding process, the foundation sets the tone for the rest of the build. At Hamill Concrete, we take pride in getting the job done right, both structurally and economically. We specialize in poured wall foundations for custom, local, and national home builders in the Twin Cities metro area.
With a combined 45-plus years in the construction industry, our founders understand the importance of respect, integrity, and professionalism. Whether on the job or adding new crew members to our team, our mission remains the same: to build solid foundations for our customers and our employees.
BENEFITS OF POURED WALL FOUNDATIONS
At Hamill Concrete, we are committed to quality and adherence to specifications. Our poured wall foundations are engineered to provide lasting strength and durability.
The compressive and flexural strength of poured wall foundations is greater than that of block walls, which need steel reinforcements to achieve the same strength. Their strength also measures far beyond the required safety factor.
- Water Resistance
Due to their increased strength, density, and joint-free construction, poured wall foundations help maintain drier basements. This means poured wall foundations also offer superior mold-resistance.
- Fire Resistance
Concrete has the highest fire rating of all construction materials, but not all concrete foundations offer equal protection. The solid construction of a poured wall foundation offers at least twice as much protection against fire as a foundation made of hollow concrete blocks.
- Design Flexibility
Poured wall foundations offer the ultimate design flexibility for architects and contractors, because they start as a liquid. Other foundation materials, such as concrete blocks, are not capable of being manipulated into any shape.
Poured wall foundations require little to no maintenance. That’s because they are resistant to pests, rot, fire, water, and other elements. The most upkeep that will need to be done is occasional painting and sealing; the frequency depends on the humidity levels of the building location.

- EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION
Respect is one of our core values at Hamill Concrete; we have respect for ourselves, our co-workers, and our customers. For us, that starts with showing up on time for every build. We make punctuality a priority, not only because we know the project can’t move on until we’ve done our job, but also because we strive to be accountable and honest in every aspect of our work. We hire employees who share our values and are motivated to be their best. When our crew is building your foundation, you can be confident that the job will be completed to the highest level and in a timely manner.
A solid, well-built foundation gives homeowners a sense of security. We are proud to have the skills and expertise to provide that for our customers. Our company was established in 2017, but our founders’ experience in the industry is decades in the making. Shaun is the owner of J&W Asphalt, and has been working in residential construction since he was just 13 years old. Tim has a degree in construction management, and has worked in the poured wall business since 2000—14 of those years as the foreman of a poured wall crew. We know the industry inside and out and have high standards for ourselves and our work on every foundation. In fact, we’d rather have fewer jobs and deliver exceptional workmanship than try to get as many jobs as possible.
At Hamill, we believe building a strong, successful business is much like building a sturdy home—it starts from the ground up. We’re dedicated to doing right by our employees and setting them up for success. This is why all positions with our company are year-round and full-time—no contractors. We also provide excellent benefits including healthcare, 10 paid days off, all holidays off, a year-end bonus, and a 401k.
