Insulated Concrete Forms
ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) are hollow, rigid polystyrene blocks that are reinforced and filled with concrete. They are used to build incredibly-insulated homes and commercial buildings.
ICF Buildings are constructed with a super-insulated, concrete shell which can span from basement all the way up to the eaves. The insulated walls create an indoor climate that is 99% air tight and provides superior comfort!
Because of this, they use 40% – 80% less energy to operate and provide substantially more 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.
Construction with ICF also 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!
Insulated Concrete Forms can be used to build a basement and exterior walls in new construction or an addition to an existing building.
As West Michigan’s premier ICF Builder, we use top-quality insulated concrete blocks.
These manufacturers provide a wide range of ICF blocks to suit many types of requirements.
Depending on the design and specifications of your project, we will select the right type of ICF block for you!
They are then stacked into the shape of the exterior walls of your home or building, reinforced with steel rebar, and filled with concrete.
ICF blocks combine one of the finest insulating materials, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), with one of the strongest structural building materials, steel reinforced concrete.
The result is structure of unmatched comfort, energy efficiency, strength and noise reduction.
