Insulated Concrete Forms
 
Insulated concrete forms (I.C.F. or ICF) are interlocking modular units made of expanded or extruded polystyrene (EPS or XPS) that are dry-stacked into the shape of the exterior walls of your home. Reinforcing steel is added and concrete is poured into the ICF forms. The foam remains in place and becomes part of the wall, thus providing the insulation value to the wall system. The result is a home that is comfortable, provides sound absorption, is energy efficient, and has strength, durability and design flexibility.


Energy Efficiency
Energy Efficiency
Houses built with ICF exterior walls require an estimated 44% less energy to heat and 32% less energy to cool than comparable frame houses. These are not one-time savings; they continue year after year.
High Indoor Air Quality
High Indoor Air Quality
Insulated concrete forms prevent air movement, thus creating an airtight seal around the entire perimeter of the building and preventing the entry of dust, pollens and pollution
Comfort
Comfort
ICF homes have even temperature, fewer drafts, fewer hot and cold spots, and consistent floor-to-ceiling temperatures.

Strength and Durability
Strength and Durability
ICF homes are built using reinforced cement. Reinforced concrete buildings are very strong and are less susceptible to damage caused by the forces of nature such as earthquakes, tornados and hurricanes.
Depending on the type of finished used, ICF walls provide two to three hours of fire protection
ICF homes retain their value for a longer period of time due to the fact they’re sturdier, stronger and require much less repair and maintenance than conventionally built homes.
