Construction Materials that Increase Performance and Efficiency Together

So many high performance construction materials and procedures exist today. With so much to consider for the floors, walls, ceilings, and more, there are efficient and effective methods of building our homes and other locations to save cost in so many ways over the long run.

Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)/

One of the most common materials that have added to the efficiency of construction today is insulated concrete. With the inability of concrete alone to insulate from below, there is much to gain from the advanced technology of insulated concrete forms. Especially in commercial buildings, when there is the greater use of concrete in overall construction, there is much to gain from the use of ICF in the reduced construction cost as well as the long-term reduction in utility costs on site.

Dating back to 1966, the original ICF has been further advanced over the years to reduce f
