ICF Construction FAQs

Absolutely! We visit the site of your construction and provide you with a complete estimate with pricing and scope of work to be completed.
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.
The double-layer of intertwined insulated blocks and a poured concrete wall makes an air-tight and pest-resistant foundation.
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.
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.
That’s a great question, and one that we love to answer!
  • We work hard before the job starts to minimize, or eliminate, any potential issues with your project.
  • We provide free custom quotes.
  • We have over 30 years of experience.
  • Our customer service is built on trust, quality work, and great communication.
Specifics are not exactly known since this is a relatively new method of construction, but it is estimated that ICF construction lasts 4 times longer than standard construction.
ICF construction has many benefits, and for the local area there are three in particular:
  • It provides structural integrity in high-wind areas - up to 200 mph!
  • It is pest-resistant.
  • It doesn’t rot or get mold and mildew damage.

What Is
Insualted Concrete Form Construction (ICF)?

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.
