- 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.”
