Insulating concrete forms (ICFs) are
hollow foam blocks which are stacked into the shape of
the exterior walls of a building, reinforced with steel
rebar, and then filled with concrete. ICFs combine one
of the finest insulating materials, Expanded
Polystyrene (EPS), with one of the strongest
structural building materials, steel reinforced
concrete. The result is a wall system of unmatched
comfort, energy efficiency, strength and noise
