On Choosing Amvic…
“We chose Amvic Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) for our project after careful consideration of the cost, quality, reputation and customer service/support of the largest ICF suppliers. We found that most installers within the industry had nothing but good things to say about the product, and the cost was on par with most forms. Mostly, we chose Amvic based on the quality of the people. Through our evaluation of which forms to use, we found that the ICF industry is full of mom and pop start-ups or distributors willing to make any promise in order to gain a sale. Amvic is an established company, with people who have first hand experience with ICF systems, which is not true for a lot of the people we found in the industry. Further, the local distributor James Johnson [Integrated Wall Systems], has made the experience even more enjoyable.” – Mike Rhodes PE, Acero Construction
