The Business Case for Building with Insulating Concrete Forms: A Builders Perspective

Wednesday, February 1 | 12:30 - 1:00 PM
LVCC - NAHB Building Systems Councils Lounge - North 242

What It’s About

Lumber prices have fluctuated wildly over the past two years with the cost of an average new single-family home increasing by more than $24,000 in some cases, threatening your business and the ability to build affordably. The cost of concrete has remained stable over the same timeframe, making it an ideal alternative to wood frames. A building system called insulating concrete forms (ICFs) has become a popular alternative to wood frames that results in a better-quality home for your customer. ICFs are polystyrene forms that are stacked in place and then filled with concrete to form a solid concrete wall. Understand the business case for building high-quality, disaster-resilient, super energy-efficient homes with concrete.
