Benefits to an ICF Foundation

Lower Energy Bills- homes with ICF Foundation walls require 44% less energy to heat and 32% less to cool, then a wood-framed house. 

Greater Comfort and Quiet- you will notice less cold drafts and noise. The great mass of concrete in the walls can reduce sound penetration by more than 80%

 

Pest Proof-the materials used in ICF Foundations are unappealing to termites, carpenter ants and rodents.

Healthier Indoor Environment- ICF contains no organic material, so mold, mildew and other microorganisms won't support growth on it. 

Fire Resistant- The plastic foam used in ICF won't add fuel to a fire, they are treated with a flame retardant to prevent them from burning. 

Less Repair and Maintenance- ICF walls are made with a non-biodegradable material. They will not rot or deteriorate like untreated lumber.
