INSULATED CONCRETE FORMS
ICF Construction (Insulated Concrete Forms) is an alternate form of conventional frame construction. Not only does ICF provide the structure for your homes, it also provides the insulation which makes it energy efficient and more sound-proof than traditional frame construction. Freeman’s Construction, Inc. is providing homeowners this service as an option for green building. Foam bricks are interlocked without mortar and then reinforced with steel and filled with concrete. Due to the process of sandwiching concrete between foam, it provides superior structural engineering and is far more fire resistant than a wood-framed home. While the actual ICF construction process is more costly than a standard home, the energy efficiency and utility savings help to pay for itself in time.
