attests to the permanence of concrete. The cementitious
structures of ancient times are comprised of only a crude form
of the highly refined concrete we have today, yet they've stood
the test of time.
The high-mass walls of an insulating concrete
form structure give it a
remarkably solid feel. And make it a remarkably solid investment,
too. While wood structures are expected to last decades, it only makes
sense that a building made from steel reinforced concrete and
high-density foam will last centuries.
permanence of concrete construction increases the value of your
investment, whether it be your personal residence, a
multi-family dwelling, or a commercial structure. When you build
with concrete, you build for keeps.
Neither polystyrene nor concrete will ever rot
or rust. Reinforcing steel, buried deep inside and protected by
concrete's alkalinity, does not corrode.
After years of service, an ICF structure can
be completely refurbished with new interior and exterior
finishes to achieve an updated style or new use.
