Q&A with the builder

Q. What was the major benefit of using Amvic ICF over conventional construction?

A. We chose ICF over conventional construction due to the benefits that ICF provides. The client wanted a sound dampening product, that was also durable and provided constant temperature control. ICF requires less material and still provides more sound attenuation than typical conventional construction assemblies.

Q. Why did you choose Amvic’s Insulated Concrete Forms?

A. Amvic’s ICF  is economically priced yet provides a competitively better R value of R 30 which is great when wanting to build an energy efficient home. We also like the 8″ on center spacing for attaching drywall and the Amvic ICF R30 plus block is also thicker which is more durable during the concrete pour.
