Options

ICF Construction is Versatile!

ICF Homes and buildings are extremely customizable and adaptable to any design can you can dream!

An ICF home can look just like any type of traditional home you’d find in Michigan, built on a full basement or choose a heated concrete slab for incredible comfort!

But because of their incredible flexibility, your home or building can also have custom features at a lower cost than traditional building techniques. From unique footprints to arches, angles, and curves, the sky is the limit! You can even overcome structural challenges, such as poor soil, with ICF construction.

ICF home exteriors can be finished with vinyl or wood siding, stucco, rock or brick.

We can even take your existing plans and convert them to ICF!

How is ICF Different?

How an ICF buildings are different from wood-framed structures. 

  • Exterior walls are thicker
  • Door jambs and window sills are thicker
  • Special waterproofing below ground
  • Overall square footage may increase (to accommodate thicker walls)
  • Roof size will be slightly larger
  • Cost about 7% more to build
  • Can be built on poor soil

Benefits

The super-insulated, concrete shell of an ICF building can span from foundation to the eaves. This superior construction technology creates a much more comfortable climate indoors, and a stronger external shell.

It saves construction time by combining the 3 of the most time-consuming parts of construction – framing, insulating and concrete – and uses fewer materials too.

Requiring 40% – 80% less energy to operate, ICF structures provide substantial long-term value.

Costs

Custom ICF homes cost about 7% more than wood-framed houses.

When you compare that with the energy you’ll save, lower insurance rates and better protection, it’s worth every penny!

Then, consider that you’ll achieve concrete, framing and insulation in one step – ICF is the obvious answer.
