What is Insulated Concrete Form Construction?

 

Similar to poured concrete walls, ICF construction uses the concept of setting up concrete forms and then filling the forms with concrete.  The forms used in ICF construction, however, are hollow blocks made of rigid thermal insulation.  

 

These blocks securely interlock with each other.  When the forms are completed with ICF blocks, concrete is poured and

allowed to dry.  Unlike poured concrete walls, the block forms are not removed after the concrete has dried.  Instead, the ICF blocks remain and help provide insulation.  

 

To finish the construction process, plumbing and electrical parts are typically placed in the insulating blocks.  The final layer is

then placed on the interior and exterior.

 

The final interior and exterior layers are attached to the ICF blocks.  Because of the block construction, the final touches can

be made to look similar to typical construction.

 

The poured concrete wall sandwiched between the ICF blocks provides the long-term durability, stability, and efficiency that

Insulated Concrete Form construction is famous for.

Frequently asked questions

Do you provide quotes for ICF construction?


Absolutely! We visit the site of your construction and provide you with a complete estimate with pricing and scope of work to be completed.




What does “ICF” mean?


It is an acronym for “Insulated Concrete Form.”




What makes ICF construction so efficient?


There are many things that make ICF construction efficient and strong, but here are the 3 main points:

  1. Modular blocks made from insulation are stacked together, similar to Legos.
  2. These blocks are reinforced before pouring concrete.
  3. Once the blocks are set and reinforced, they are filled with concrete to create a solid core.




How is it more pest-resistant than traditional construction?


The double-layer of intertwined insulated blocks and a poured concrete wall makes an air-tight and pest-resistant foundation.




How does the interlinking of ICF blocks help make the construction sturdier?


The reinforced ICF blocks make the concrete stronger than a simple poured wall. None of the components rot or chip which also creates long-term stability.




How is ICF construction different from traditional poured concrete walls?


In traditional poured concrete walls, the forms are removed when the concrete has dried. In ICF construction, the insulated blocks are left in place as part of the wall.
