Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) can be used in residential and commercial construction and have many benefits. First, ICF homes are cost competitive to 2x6 construction. So why not build a building that is going to lower energy bills, lower maintenance costs, protects against moisture, and is wind, fire and storm resistant. Another great benefit of ICF construction is noise reduction. ICF provides a great sound barrier if you live near a busy road or railroad track.
One might also think that a concrete building has to be square and boring, but much to an owner's surprise, ICF construction provides the same versatility as wood construction! An ICF building will provide years of security and comfort all while lasting the test of time.
