Extreme R-Value: Going Beyond R-30
As codes and green building incentives call for higher insulation values, manufacturers have responded by creating a variety of products that push R-Values beyond the typical R-22 or R-25. Graphite-enhanced bead, foam inserts, thicker sidewalls, or some combination can meet virtually any need.

Moisture and ICFs: The Facts
ICFs are catching on for municipal projects. These three winners showcase the quality of light commercial work being done.

  • Las Vegas Fire Station #107
  • Hébert et Fils Funeral Home
  • Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department

Project Profiles: The Large Residential Winners
These custom homes combine beauty, durability, and efficiency into a variety of stunning residences. Ranging from Tennessee to Utah, they’re the large residential winners of the 2012 ICF Builder Awards.

  • Nashville Home
  • Riverton Legacy Home
  • San Pietro Model Home

Energy Codes Favor ICFs
The new Canadian construction code mandates significant energy savings. U.S. model energy codes are also raising the bar. These changes may erase the cost differential the ICF industry has struggled to compete against for years—if the codes are enforced.
