Building with ICF's
- ICFs are a lightweight and efficient forming system used to build solid concrete walls.
- After filling the forms with concrete, they are left in place providing a continuous insulation and sound barrier as well as backing for drywall on the inside and stucco, siding, masonry, or stone on the outside.
- Insulated Concrete Form building envelopes can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 70% compared to other materials, making it the single biggest and most cost-effective cut in a building's total cost.
- The use of Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) is one of the fastest growing sectors of the construction industry.
