insulated concrete forms
ICF's thermal mass walls create
a more energy efficient home
that can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 60% a year.
With up to 50% reduction in construction time, ease of routing wire, built-in insulation, and lower capacity HVAC requirements, there's an average savings of 23% in total construction cost compared to traditional methods.
ICF homes also have higher ROI, higher resale, and lower lifetime maintenance costs being termite, rodent and mold resistant.
Non-toxic, fire-retardant expanded polystyrene foam provides a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours (4x that of wood), wind resistance of up to 250 mph, and the steel-reinforced solid concrete core provides far superior strength and safety outcomes in seismic events and wind-driven impacts.
ICF is Green Codes Certified, Recommended components of LEED certified projects, Contains 0% CFC, HCFC, HFC or other ozone depleting agents, and 100% recyclable
ICF homes have improved ventilation
for healthier indoor air quality
and an environment that’s less susceptible to mold.
Your home is less likely to have
cold or hot spots as the insulation is continuous around the entire house.
ICF is an excellent and effective
sound barrier, dampening sound vibrations from unwanted
outside noise, such as traffic,
trains, and neighbors providing
STC (Sound Transmission Class)
ratings as high as STC 50.
