Your first step towards an energy efficient and comfortable home or commercial building that uses insulated concrete wall forms may be working with an architect and/or engineer to incorporate this technology into your design. Anyone who has experience with ICF will confirm its advantages, which include lower labor costs and faster builds coupled with a multitude of benefits after you move in: better thermal performance, wind/fire/earthquake and moisture protection, no drafts or cold spots, quieter interiors, and more. Ask one of our ProLink architects about the ways an ICF build delivers benefits long after the build.

It's easy to see that homes built using ICF forms offer a number of benefits around energy efficiency, but there are some added benefits that you may not have considered. Homes constructed using insulated concrete for walls enjoy very quiet interior spaces, as outside noises are seriously dampened by the walls. Cold spots and drafts are non-existent. Humidity is easily maintained at just the right comfortable level. And there is no susceptibility of the structure to mold or unhealthy off-gassing. Talk to one of our pros today about enjoying these features in your new home.

A typical ICF form is made of two 16" x 48" x 2.75" polystyrene foam panels held together with a series of six polypropylene ties. The ties create a web which is the mechanism that allows for the placement of reinforcing steel, while the foam panels create the unit that provides the insulation and forms the concrete. These panels are designed to interlock, keeping the next course of forms in alignment. When assembled into a complete wall structure, the insulated concrete forms deliver six construction steps in one: furring strips, vapor barrier, air barrier, insulation, steel reinforcement and concrete, with an R-value of 25 or higher.
