Insulating Concrete Forms are

 

Earth-Friendly


Green.
It seems to be the new buzzword in the construction industry. And with good reason. The construction practices of the past are simply unsatisfactory for the world of today - and
tomorrow.
It’s more important than ever that we conserve natural resources and reduce waste and pollution. There are countless reasons why we should do every we can to protect the environment. ICFs not only offer the owners and tenants unbeatable benefits, but they’re also environmentally responsible.
  • Building an ICF home instead of traditional stick frame home saves at least 10 trees.

  • The enormous reduction in energy use — up to 70% — saves our natural resources.

  • The energy savings also result in less carbon monoxide being released into the atmosphere on an ongoing basis.

  • ICF blocks — especially BuildBlock ICFs — result in less construction waste.


BuildBlock ICFs contain no HCFC, formaldehyde, asbestos, or fiberglass, and no harmful CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) are used in their manufacture, nor is there any degree of “off-gassing.”
