What are Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)?

Insulated concrete forms (ICFs) are hollow foam blocks which are stacked into the shape of the exterior walls of a building, reinforced with steel rebar, and then filled with concrete. The forms remain in place providing extreme energy efficiency (R-50+). They are covered with brick, stucco, siding on the outside and drywall on the inside giving you a home that looks like any other, but is extremely energy efficient.

Insulated concrete forms combine one of the finest insulating materials, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Foam, with one of the strongest structural building materials, steel reinforced concrete. The result is a wall system of unmatched comfort, energy efficiency, strength and noise reduction.

What's the difference between insulating concrete forms and insulated concrete forms?

They refer to the same thing and you'll see both phrases throughout our website. However, the term insulating concrete form is more precise because it indicates that the insulating characteristic of the form is continuous and ongoing.

What are the advantages of an insulated concrete form structure?

Insulated Concrete form structures are much more comfortable, quiet, and energy-efficient than those built with traditional construction methods. Use the menu on the right for more details about the advantages of insulated concrete form homes and buildings.
