A Home’s Building Blocks
Construction of a wood-framed home typically accounts for about 6% of the total energy that home will consume over its lifespan.
Homes built with alternative structural systems such as SIPs and ICFs have demonstrated superior performance during weather disasters.
Walls created with ICFs have the advantage of a masonry effect, slowing the impact of the sun’s heat during the day and cooling slowly during the evening.
New, cement-faced SIPs and ICFs with integral vertical fastening strips make it easy to apply wallboard on interior walls or finish exteriors without furring strips.
