ICF stands for Insulated Concrete Form, otherwise known as insulated concrete walls.

About  ICF

Today, home buyers expect more value and efficiency from their new home. They want beauty that's more than skin deep. A home that fits their lifestyle - of course but also a home with solid, high quality constructions, greater comfort and security. Lower energy bills. Lower maintenance. A home that's healthier to live in, and easier on the environment.

 

It's becoming harder and harder to meet their new expectations with the same old building technology - wood framing. So more and more builders and home buyers are turning to something new. A modern adaptation of a centuries-old technology using the most proven building material on earth. Concrete.

 

Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) give you all the benefits that have made concrete the material of choice for home building worldwide: Solid, lasting construction that resists the ravages of fire, wind, and Father Time. But ICFs do plain concrete one better - or rather, two better - by giving you two built-in layers of insulation.

               

This gives an ICF home some sizable advantages over a traditionaly framed home. Greater energy efficiency. More peace & quiet. More sheer day-to-day living comfort. All wrapped up in a solid, high-quality building package. You can feel that it's solid, built to last.
