Doug Martens Construction is Certified ICF(Insulated Concrete Forms) builder!

Here are some benefits with a ICF home:

Energy efficiency – Minimal, if any, air leaks, which improves comfort and reduces heat loss compared to walls without a solid air barrier

• Fire protection – ICF walls can have four- to six-hour fire resistance rating and negligible surface burning properties.

• Vermin – Because the entire interior space of ICF walls is continuously occupied (no gaps as can occur between blown or fiberglass insulation and a wood frame wall) they pose more difficulty for casual transit by insects and vermin.
