Buildings constructed with ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) have dozens of benefits! They are built with a super-insulated, concrete shell which can span from foundation right up to the eaves. This superior, insulated wall construction creates an indoor climate that is much more comfortable and allows less allergens in.
ICF building saves time by combining the 3 of the most time-consuming parts of construction – framing, insulating and pouring concrete. It also uses fewer materials, with up to 33% less lumber needed!
ICF structures use 40% – 80% less energy to operate, providing substantial value in the long-run. They are also rated better for fire-safety and provide more insulation R-Value than any other type of construction.
They also provide more sustainable, green-construction, with fewer materials needed, less waste produced and last for centuries!
Insulated Concrete Forms can be used to build a foundation and exterior walls in new construction or an addition to an existing building.
