What is ICF

Insulated Concrete Forms (or ICFs) are forms or molds that have built-in insulation for accepting reinforced concrete.  The first patent application for an ICF was registered in the late 1960’s.  Since then, and particularly in the last 4 years, ICFs have been fast-becoming the mainstream preferred building product worldwide for all of the right reasons:

These large, hollow blocks are stacked right off of the truck and filled with reinforcing bar and concrete.  The end result leaves you with a high-performing wall that is structurally sound, insulated, strapped, has a vapor barrier and is ready to accept final exterior and interior finishes.

Produced from recycled materials, the Insulated Concrete Forms begin their life as an environmentally friendly product designed to make buildings more energy efficient. Unused portions of the block can even be reused or recycled to make the lowest possible impact on natural resources.

By keeping air and moisture out, ICFs lower the potential for allergens and mold meaning that buildings are safer and healthier to live, work and play in. Standing up to winds of up to 250+ mph (Can be engineered to much higher) and fire for up to four hours, ICF will provide peace of mind for those living inside.
There will be absolutely no drafts or cold spots.  ICF homeowners have commented on how constant temperatures stay within their homes.  Because of the tremendous thermal mass of the exterior wall envelope, temperature peaks are smoothed, and therefore homes are noticeably warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
From custom homes to High rises, Hampton’s ICF offers the product that will meet your needs for a solid, good quality structure.
