Energy Savings
Houses build with ICF exterior walls typically require 44% less energy to heat and 32% less energy to cool than comparable frame houses.  Insulating Concrete Forms create a tight air barrier. Time has no impact on these materials. The foam has a consistent R-value for the full service life of the wall.

Less Repair and Maintenance
No Rot = Less Repair and maintenance. Concrete may be exposed to the elements for centuries with few ill effects. Reinforcing steel, buried deep inside the concrete does not corrode.


Solid and Lasting Security

Concrete homes have a proven track record of withstanding the ravages of hurricanes, tornadoes and fires. Many insurance carriers are now offering a discount on a home owner’s policy for an ICF home.

ICF Construction is storm insurance…which pays for itself through energy savings.

Peace and Quiet
In sound transmission tests, ICF walls allowed less than one-third as much sound to pass through as do ordinary frame walls filled with fiberglass. New ICF homeowners almost always remark on how unbelievably quiet their new home is—compared with their old stick-built home.


Healthier Home and Environment
Building and ICF is healthier for environment in a number of ways:

  1. Less building products used,
  2. Less waste generated on construction site
  3. Lower energy requirements for heating & cooling

Nothing held within or emitted by an ICF wall is toxic.
