Insulated concrete forms
(ICFs) are like industrial
sized Lego building blocks. They are lightweight and stackable
construction blocks, manufactured with high insulation-value
foam, that are stacked into the desired shape. They are then
reinforced with steel rebar and filled with concrete.
With reinforced concrete as their
principle structural component ICF walls have considerable strength.
Wind ratings far surpass conventional wood frame construction.
ICF walls also create a superior airtight envelope that blocks mold
and moisture from entering your home. With the structural and
insulation components of your home tied together ICF walls have no
need for traditional fiberglass insulation.
