About Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)

Energy efficient, noise-dampening, and bullet proof.

There are many advantages to employing insulated concrete forms for Kennewick and Richland, WA as well as other various Tri-Cities area construction projects as opposed to standard wooden framed walls. In a nutshell, ICFs are quieter, safer, stronger, and more energy efficient.

From a builder's standpoint, ICFs are quick to install and allow easy access for running electrical conduits and plumbing. They cost only about 5%-7% more than traditional wood frames, a cost that is easily overshadowed by their advantages to the homeowner or tenant. (Their energy efficiency alone can pay for this added cost in just 3-5 years!)

Here are some notable advantages of employing ICFs in your Kennewick, Pasco, Richland, or Burbank, WA, construction projects:

  • High structural strength
  • Thermal insulation benefit
  • Regulates humidity levels (resulting in decreased incidence of mold formation)
  • Sound dampening (to minimize noise pollution)
  • Bullet proof (to address secure facility concerns)
