Why ICF Construction

There are many reasons to choose insulating concrete forms for your next construction project. And the best part of making that choice is that you get all of the benefits at the same time no matter which you think is most important.

Energy-Efficient

A thick concrete core inside your walls provide extreme strength and durability, all sandwiched between thick insulated panels of EPS foam. This material will last for lifetimes performing to keep your home stable, comfortable and energy-efficient.

Disaster Resilience

The core of ICF walls is reinforced concrete. This provides extremely strong walls to support almost any concept or design and will withstand more than 200mph winds, impacts from debris, and other challenges life may throw at your home.

Solid Strong Walls

ICF walls are solid air-tight concrete. Monolithic walls are all poured at once and is one solid piece. Combined with the EPS foam insulation and the embedded insulated plastic studs there’s no need for this house to breathe to eliminate moisture and let in dust, dirt and allergens.

Green Construction

ICFs are a green product. Once the bead is produced it is expanded using steam in special molds to create the different shapes and sizes of ICF blocks. When installed, filled with concrete and finished inside and out the EPS foam will not degrade or decay. It doesn’t compact or lose its insulation value and will keep insulating for hundreds of years.

Quietness

By the numbers ICFs have an STC rating of 54 which means shouting outside the walls cannot be heard. In every-day life noisy neighbors, busy streets, trains, planes, and

Air Tight Walls

ICF homes don’t suffer from drafts and cold spots which often occur in conventional construction. Just one more way to keep you comfortable inside.
