Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are a great alternative to traditional building materials for many reasons. Some of the most compelling reasons include…
- Quicker construction of exterior walls, floors & roofs.
- Quieter then traditional insulation.
- Better energy efficiency.
- Higher safety ratings.
- More cost effective.
The Green Solution
In today’s world we are focused on becoming more environmentally conscious and trying to live greener lives. When it comes to new construction ICF is the “green” solution and is quickly becoming more and more popular. The benefits are endless and we believe that it is only a matter of time before Insulated Concrete Forms become the new industry standard.
There have been a number of studies conducted that confirm that ICF is the most cost effective and energy efficient material that you can use. The benefits are scaled from the smallest homes all the way up to the biggest commercial buildings. Over time there is no other material that has as lower ongoing maintenance cost. There is also no other material that is as environmentally responsible.
Flexibility of Design
By now Im sure you can start to understand the benefits of ICF but we have only scraped the surface! Another HUGE benefit to using Insulated Concrete Forms in the construction of your new home is the flexibility of design. ICF can be used to create unusual design elements such as curved walls or dome roofs that would otherwise prove to be a challenge for traditional materials like wood. ICF is also the perfect backing for any type of architecture. From stone to stucco and even wood siding or traditional siding, the possibilities are endless.
Your Dream Home
Picture yourself living in a place that is more responsible, more efficient and more comfortable for your family. Doesn’t that sound like your dream home? A home like this can (and will) change the way you live. The best part is that these types of homes DO exist and are VERY obtainable for people just like you! Its up to you to make the right choice for your family. ICF building is the way of the future.
