Your dream home should be beautiful, safe and comfortable. With insulated concrete forms, or ICFs, your house can be all that plus environmentally friendly, energy-efficient and resistant to natural disasters. Building an ICF home, compared to wood-framing, offers increased durability, low maintenance and peace of mind that your house will last for generations.
Nudura insulated concrete forms are comprised of two connected panels of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam that are stacked and steel-reinforced, then filled with concrete for solid structural walls with continuous interior and exterior insulation.
The concrete core enables ICF homes to withstand the most extreme weather conditions, including hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires and earthquakes, to keep you and your family safe. The thermal mass and high R-value provides superior energy efficiency and lower utility costs over the lifespan of your home. Insulated concrete forms require less maintenance over time than wood, saving you the expense and effort of continuous upkeep.
