When you step inside an ICF home, it’s apparent that this is no ordinary house. ICF homes combine expanded polystyrene (EPS), one of the most heavy-duty insulating materials, with steel-reinforced concrete, one of the strongest structural building materials. The result? A foundation of unrivaled durability, energy efficiency, noise reduction and safety for your home.
As homeowners become more concerned with rising energy costs and preparation against natural disaster—especially with rampant Central Texas flooding and wildfires—ICF construction is a winning choice for a home that’s not just beautiful but extraordinarily durable and built to last.
Insulating concrete forms, also known as ICF, is a system of wall construction that utilizes cast concrete walls sandwiched between two layers of foam insulation forms. These forms are stacked as interlocking blocks, which are connected with steel reinforcing rods and left in place to provide insulation for your home. This extremely sturdy and insulated foundation results in homes that are airtight, well insulated and energy efficient. They’re also able to withstand severe weather events like flooding, tornadoes and wildfires much better than wood-based construction.
An ICF home isn’t limited to a certain architectural style—these homes can have a traditional finish, from brick to wood to siding on the interior or exterior.
You know that an ICF home is extremely durable and safe, but how does its construction affect your day-to-day life?
