Storm Resistant Houses
Ok, Everyone knows the story of the three little pigs. The wolf huffed and puffed and blew the house in, until, after having this happen twice, they wised up and got a house made of brick. Well, there is no real big bad wolf, per se, but there are plenty of things out there that can destroy your home!
In the scope of this post I cannot begin to name all the genuine benefits
of owning an insulated concrete formed home (ICF), However, let me say that
these homes look no different than any other house or building, it’s the
walls and form that are the main key and difference. They provide a solid
and insulated barrier against everything from hazardous weather to
tremendous energy savings to even providing a virtually sound proof home.
When you consider the performance, reliability, comfort, affordability and
safety ICF homes provide, and the more research you do, the more you’ll
come to know that you simply can’t go wrong with these fantastically build
homes that will outlast any wooden home, and add peace of mind *knowing*
you’re protected in so many ways! I invite you to look them up and do your
own research; if you, or someone you know, is in the market for a new home,
you cannot find a better time than right now to start looking into these
safe and affordable homes that will give you and your loved ones peace of
mind for decades to come.
What is a Net Zero Home?
Homes that are 70% more energy efficient than typical homes. They are often powered by solar and built using Insulated Concrete Forms. Known in the industry as ICF Construction. There are many benefits to this type of construction. Net Zero Homes have zero utility bills! ICF Construction offers virtually no air leaks, which reduces heating and cooling costs associated with drafts and leaks. Noise absorption is also phenomenal with this type of construction system. ICF walls have minimal acoustic transmission and standard thickness ICF walls frequently produce sound transmission coefficients (STC) between 46 & 50. The strength of ICF walls can be compared as 10x’s stronger than traditional wood framed walls.
