What are Insulating Concrete Forms? -

What are Insulating Concrete Forms?

Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) are hollow blocks made of Polystyrene Foam.  These blocks have webbing inside that hold the form together and provide rigidity.  Once the Insulating Concrete Forms have been assembled into the floor plan of your home or building, concrete is pumped into them. 

Unlike traditional steel or wood concrete forms which are removed after the pouring of concrete, Insulating Concrete Forms remain in place.  Now the Insulating Concrete Forms can perform their most important function, insulating your home!
