Insulated Concrete House

Six significant advantages
xxx

SAVING CONSTRUCTION BUDGET

Combining the traditional six-step construction process reduces the loss of raw materials compared to wood-framed structured houses. ICF can be less labour-intensive and minimize material costs during the construction process.

ENHANCING CUSTOMIZATION

The insulated concrete wall has higher plasticity and adaptability in the appliance of different building shapes; no matter if it is an arc or any unique wall shape, they can all be perfectly showcased by ICF.

INCREASING INSULATION AND ENERGY-EFFICIENT

Insulated concrete walls can improve the energy efficiency of the building. The two layers of insulation walls provide high, continuous insulation and low air infiltration. Without the heat conduction effect, heat loss can be significantly reduced inside the building.

INCREASING SOUNDPROOF CAPACITY

The insulated concrete wall is highly soundproof. With the 6” concrete core, the Sound Transmission Class (STC) can be rated 50 to 55. Compared to traditional wood-framed walls, only 20% to 25% of the sound wave can be travelled through walls.

LIFELONG DURABILITY

Insulated concrete walls have a high tolerance to changes in extreme climates. Due to the long and cold winters in Canada, it is a great challenge to the stability of the traditional wood-framed construction houses. The changing climate will cause significant thermal expansion and contraction, resulting in the deformation of the house’s structure. In contrast, ICF can ideally prevent such situations and provide the building with higher durability.

ETERNIZING LONGEVITY

The service life of the insulated concrete building can exceed 100 years. The concrete core of the wall can reach up to 4 hours of fire resistance pre-tests. It is also one of the materials that require the least follow-up maintenance amongst various building materials.
