Frequently Asked Questions
How much does an ICF foundation cost?
An ICF building typically costs about 10% more money than a stick-framed structure. You'll see savings with the one step process of structure, insulation, furring strips and vapour barrier, as well as nearly 50% less spent on heating.
What are the advantages to building an ICF building?
ICF buildings use 40-50% less energy to heat and cool when combined with other energy saving products. They are also resistant to wind, fire, mold, insects and rodents. ICF buildings are safe, quiet and comfortable places for your families. ICF construction can be done in the winter since there is no risk of the concrete freezing with the polystyrene insulation on both sides of the poured concrete.
Are there limitations on exterior finishes with ICF?
No, any stucco or siding can be fastened to the plastic webs just like conventional methods.
