Why more builders, contractor's and developers are turning to TF Forming Systems ICF Wall Systems for their building needs...


An interview with Travis L. of Delrar, Inc. on building residential and commercial ICF buildings.

- Travis, Delrar, Inc.

"This was the first time using any ICF and I absolutely LOVED it."

- Tim, Hatfield Building and Remodeling


"We had never used an ICF product before except for one of our crew members.  His comment to me was, "I like TF's Vertical ICF System over the block ICF's I've used."

- Chris, Valley Building System


"Given our locale it's necessary to build a home that includes storm safety, and with ICF its practical and easy."

- Mike Kirkpatrick, Alternative Energy Construction, Missouri


"We are a full service commercial and residential concrete contractor serving the Charleston, SC market area. From site preparation, to footings, slabs, walls and masonry, we are prepared to meet our customer’s requirements. TF System is our product of choice for ICF jobs. Their vertical system has been readily adapted by our masonry crews. TF System and their local distributor have given excellent support and technical service, allowing us to successfully present the product to the owner and deliver a responsible bid."


- Eric Labarca, President, Red Bay Constructors, Inc., Charleston, SC


"We started using the TF system several years ago in response to a customer's request for a "Green Home".  We have found several advantages that have made us more competitive than our competitors.  First, we no longer have to wait on a concrete contractor to get our basements put in. Instead of us having dead time between jobs we are able to start the next home on our schedule not someone else's.  Secondly, if our customer is going to finish the basement, this system allows us to install drywall directly onto the forms. No more framing the walls out afterword or trying to use furring strips and styrofoam later. Next, this system allows us to have more work because we now do the basement concrete work as well as frame the house.  We can do more business without needing to find more customers. Finally, we do not need to own and maintain expensive forms and trucks and equipment.  All we need is a couple of battery saws and drills and we are in business.."


- Jeff Roessner, Roessner Contracting Inc.


"I am always pleased to see a ThermoForm Vertical ICF project when I pull up to a jobsite.  I know that the chances of any trouble with form failure or crooked walls is almost totally eliminated by contractors using ThermoForms. With my 30 years of concrete experience I am amazed at how much improvement the vertical ICF forms have been."


- Rick Gazella, Gazella Concrete Pumping, Pulaski, WI

"I am writing this letter to let you know how much I appreciate our business relationship over the past 10 years. When I came up to that first training session in Sturgeon Bay, I realized that TF System had  a great product that I could successfully use in my construction business. Since that time, I have been well pleased, not only with the product, but with the ability to meet my schedules, and the technical backup provided. Your people have never let me down and I can't begin to tell you how important that is to me. I have used a lot of your construction materials in the past decade and look forward to another 10+ years of business together."

- Patt Burgess, Burgess Basements, Inc. Iron Mtn, MI



"I have been purchasing ThermoForm ICF materials from your company since 2005. I have been very pleased with the level of service provided. The product was delivered when I needed it and any issues I may need an answer to are immediately taken care of. I am particularly impressed with the knowledge of the technical people as they have construction backgrounds and know the product well. Together we have been able to overcome each and every design challenge my company has faced when forming concrete walls with ICF. Thanks for providing a great product and excellent service!"

            - David Kozial, Kozial Construction, Sheldon, WI  


"I would like to take this opportunity to Thank You for the level of service, on-site training and supervision provided your company representatives during our recent Habitat for Humanity project in Shawano, WI. Your foundation system, in combination with DOW Styrofoam, will provide the family with a dry, comfortable, energy efficient living area for years to come. Our Wolf River HFH Chapter looks forward to dedicating this house in June."

- Ted Foster, Construction Supervisor; HfH Wolf River, Shawano WI
