ICF Construction

ICF Construction

Insulating concrete forms (ICFs) result in cast-in-place concrete walls that are sandwiched between two layers of insulation material. These systems are strong and energy efficient. Common applications for this method of construction are low-rise buildings, with property uses ranging from residential to commercial to industrial. Traditional finishes are applied to interior and exterior faces, so the buildings look similar to typical construction, although the walls are usually thicker.

Advantages of ICF Construction Include:

  • Strength
  • Disaster resistance and safety
  • Mold, rot, mildew, and insect resistance
  • Reduced sound transmission
  • Overall comfort
  • Energy efficiency and resultant cost savings
  • Fast, easy construction
  • Flexibility
  • Ability to meet higher energy code mandates with less complicated construction
