What is ICF

Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)

  • ICFs are hollow foam blocks that are stacked one on top of another (think LEGO) to form the walls of a building, reinforced with rebar and filled with concrete.

  • ICF blocks are made up of two sides of approximately 2 inch thick Expanded Polystyrene Foam (EPS) that are connected by plastic webbing. Steel Rebar is placed in the webbing at specified intervals to add tensile strength.

  • Buildings erected using ICFs have a lifespan FOUR times that of traditional wood-framed buildings.

  • ICF construction is on average 5 to 10% more expensive than traditional methods but with superior insulation and less maintenance needed homeowners see reduced monthly expenses that more than offset the cost discrepancy

  • ICF construction is 700% stronger than traditionally wood-framed buildings.
