|ICF Homes minimize the use of lumber up o 33% when compared with a 2x4 stick-built home. Drywall, siding, brick, stucco, paneling, or any other finishing system can be directly fastened to the ICF wall, eliminating the need for a 2x4 stud wall and sheathing for the entire shell of an ICF home.|
ICF blocks are also proven as a vapor barrier,
eliminating the need of any house wrap material. Finally, ICF homes require
less energy to heat and cool due to the superior thermal performance.
