Insulating Concrete Forms
Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF)
Building with ICF allow concrete homes and commercial buildings to be built stronger, more energy efficient, more comfortable and more environmentally friendly. ICF provide greater energy solutions for any structure. Ongoing laboratory and site testing has proven a home or commercial building
Maximum Energy Efficiency
With growing energy costs, building an insulated concrete form house is more energy efficient and can save you significant amounts of money on a yearly basis and reduce your carbon footprint. Insulated Concrete Form walls vastly reduce air infiltration, which greatly optimizes energy performance. When you combine two panels of 2 5/8” EPS foam with the structural strength and thermal mass of concrete insulated concrete form house can provide up to 50% in energy costs.
Greater Home Comfort & Sound Resistance
Outside cold can easily travel through a typical wood-framed wall, causing thermal bridging, and creating uncomfortable cold spots inside your home. Insulated Concrete Form homes offer superior performance when it comes to thermal bridging, resulting in even temperatures throughout your home with reduced drafts and cold spots, which optimizes energy performance. Insulated Concrete Forms act as an effective sound barrier, filtering out unwanted noise. ICF constructions dampen sound vibrations from unwanted outside noise, such as, traffic, trains and neighbors. The ultimate in home comfort.
Safety for your Family
With a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours ICF buildings offer your family maximum safety., Walls are built with steel-reinforced concrete and a non-toxic fire retardant expanded polystyrene foam ensuring maximum safety.
ICF homes are built to last, and retain their value longer. The main structural element in an ICF home is reinforced concrete which offers substantially better durability and requires less maintenance and repair over its lifetime compared to wood structures that require regular maintenance over its limited life span.
