In the past the majority of ICF construction was primarily single residential units. However, over time it's popularity has grown due to the increasing utility prices, building code changes, natural disaster combat and buyer awareness. This technology has become very appealing for larger commercial projects like apartments, condos, hotels and even retail establishments. Benefits for the contractor may include; faster construction, lighter materials, ability to meet higher energy codes and flexibility.
Whether it's your new residential home; cottage; multi-level building or commercial property, choosing ICF is one of the smartest decisions you will make. ICF buildings require less energy to heat and cool, which can lower your monthly utility bill significantly, generally come with lower insurance costs as these structures are less likely to become damaged from fires, harsh climates or natural disasters. ICF is up to 3 times more sound resistant then conventionally built houses. Since they aren't built with wood, you'll reduce your maintenance costs as well. Simply put, you're getting quality, comfort and peace of mind.
ICF stands for Insulated Concrete Forming. In layman's terms, think of it like insulated Lego blocks. These blocks are placed directly on the footing and they're interlocked one on top of the other until a desired height. From there, concrete is pumped into the cavity of the insulated block. The result is strong concrete walls with permanent rigid thermal insulation on both internal and external sides of the building. This product, with its embedded attachment strip every 8 inches, is instantly ready for the attachment of interior drywall and exterior finishes.
