Combating Rising Lumber Costs with Insulted Concrete Forms (ICF)
A silver lining to inflation and rising lumber costs is, by comparison, building products that were once considered exclusively high-end and costly might be the more affordable option now!
Take insulated concrete forms, or ICF for example. ICF is an h-shaped structure that allows concrete walls to be cast between insulation layers. What this means is that you achieve a 5x more durable, structurally sound build that outlasts traditional wood frames; you’ll save on energy costs due to the built-in insulation and airtight construction. Not only that, they speed up construction demands, cutting down the length of time, labour and supply costs involved. From an outward appearance, you can’t tell the difference either. Once it’s all said and done, ICF homes look just like a traditional wood-frame build.
