Insulated Concrete Forms

A well insulated home really does just feel better and with the added efficiency and energy savings you can feel good about owning an insulated concrete form (ICF) home. Concrete has been proven to be one of the best materials for home building worldwide. It provides solid, lasting construction, resistant to fire, weather and wear. With Insulated Concrete Forms you receive all of the benefits of concrete with the added bonus of two built-in layers of foam insulation which create an incredibly efficient wall system. ICF homes have a considerable advantage over ordinary stick built homes - most notably, greater energy efficiency.

Insulated Concrete Form Costs

ICFs typically have a higher cost than more traditional methods of construction, but the cost of ownership of an ICF structure is significantly less. ICF homes have such a remarkable feel that they really have to be experienced to be believed. Once you step inside you can tell immediately that this is no ordinary house. It feels comfortable, quiet and well-insulated. You can just feel that it is solid and built to last.
