How to Construct ICF Homes With External Wall Insulation
If you’re looking to build an efficient ICF home with external wall insulation, look no further than Blue Green Building Concepts. Our experience in constructing high quality homes using energy-efficient Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) will help bring you peace of mind for your next construction project.
We use precision-engineered ICF blocks to construct walls that are stronger and more durable than traditional wood or brick/mortar walls. Our ICF walls are reinforced with steel rebar and filled with a high PSI concrete mix to create an incredibly powerful barrier against wind and extreme weather conditions while also providing excellent soundproofing qualities. The unique design of ICFs allows us to install additional layers of exterior wall insulation without compromising on structural integrity.
External wall insulation can significantly increase the R-value of your home. This will help to preserve heat in winter and keep your home nice and cool in the summer. The interlocked design of ICFs also provides additional protection against air leakage, mold growth and pests/vermin infestations while also having a fire rating of 3.5 hours or more.
ICF construction is highly effective at increasing thermal mass in buildings which helps maintain the temperature of the structure throughout the day and a night. This not only helps to save on energy costs but increases the overall comfort level of your home year round.
At Blue Green, we understand the importance of high quality results for our clients and we dedicate our full attention to finding the best products with the highest standards available. We are also in close contact with many materials manufacturers to stay up to date with any new and improved building materials for your next project.
