Today, home buyers expect to get more from
their new home. They want beauty that’s more than skin deep.
A Versatile home that fits their lifestyle – of course. But also a
home with solid, high quality construction. 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 (ICF’s) 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 ICF’s
do plain concrete one better – or rather, two better – by giving
you two built-in layers of foam insulation. This gives an ICF home some sizable
advantages over an ordinary stick-built home.
Greater energy efficiency. More peace & quiet.
More sheer day-to-day living comfort. All wrapped up in a solid,
high-quality building package that gives an ICF home an utterly
remarkable feel that really has to be experienced to be believed.
As soon as you step inside, you can tell that an ICF home is not
an ordinary house. It’s not just beautiful, comfortable and
quiet. You can feel that it’s solid and built to last.
So just how expensive is it to get all these
extraordinary benefits? The truth is you can get superior ICF technology
for a lot less than you’d think. ICF’s are so efficient
to build with and easy to use, that the cost of building an ICF
house is comparable to that of an ordinary 2x6 wood-framed house.
But you get so much more home for your money.
