ICF BUILDER is the most cost-effective way to reach the ICF industry. For nearly 15 years, we have fine-tuned our subscription base and distribution plan to ensure you receive the maximum return on your marketing dollar.
We have a circulation of 30,000 distributed throughout North America. This includes virtually every ICF distributor and professional installer in North America. About half our circulation is print; the other half is digital.
About one-third of our readership has taken the time to seriously investigate ICF construction, and have enrolled in an ICF training course within the past few years. That’s 10,000 individuals learning the benefits of ICFs, and are a prime target market for advertisers.
Another 10,000 readers are custom homebuilders, concrete contractors, and commercial builders considered most likely to become interested in ICF building.
In addition to our qualified circulation, thousands of extra copies are distributed at ICF training seminars and regional and national trade shows throughout the year.
Geographically, we reach all 50 states and Canada, plus more than a dozen foreign countries. Most of our readership is concentrated in the U.S., especially those areas where ICF construction is growing most rapidly.
Between our print platform, digital edition and highly-ranked websites, we feel confident that you will receive a better return on your marketing dollar by advertising with us than any other method on the market.
ICF Builder is the leading media outlet for insulated concrete construction. As an integrated media company, we offer a wide range of tools to help building material suppliers connect with the ICF industry and the wider green building community.

Held annually, several hundred of the most influential people gather for a night of celebration. Limited sponsorship opportunities are available.
