Insulated Concrete Forms

Today, most home buyers expect to get more from their new home; especially with the recent collapse of the housing market nationwide.

New home buyers want beauty that’s more than skin deep.

They want a new home that is designed around a solid, high quality construction foundation; and they’d like that new home to come with a lower energy bill and lower maintenance costs.

That’s why more and more homeowners are choosing a home constructed with insulated concrete forms.

 

Insulated Concrete Forms- The New Construction Asset

Insulated concrete forms are just that; an insulated formwork that is “built in place” permanent building insulation for energy-efficient, reinforced concrete walls, floors, and roofs.

Why consider using insulated concrete forms for your new construction project?

Because…

  • ICF structures are much more comfortable, quiet, and energy-efficient than those built with traditional construction methods
  • ICF results in very minimal air leaks, which reduces heat loss compared to walls without a solid air barrier
  • ICF structures have a very high sound absorption compared with traditional framed walls
  • ICF increases the structural integrity for better resistance to forces of nature
  • ICF homes have a higher resale value that traditional frame homes because of the material longevity
  • ICF homes are more resistant to insect activity compared to traditional framed homes
  • ICF reduces heat and cooling costs up anywhere from 30%-70%
