ICF Construction - Lighten the Load on Your Next Home Build

Panelization with TF Forming Systems ICF Lightweight FormsThese light-weight forms are utilized in every building project using the TF Forming Systems Vertical ICF’s.  In most projects, using our system, it is standard that the builder places all the material in the center of the project which can then be moved as wrapped bundles into the hole or onto the subfloor with the carrying ability of only two people.  The builder then just grabs the components a few pieces at a time and this never amounts to more than 10lbs.  This allows a builder to be able to do a lot more work in a day’s time because it isn’t physically exhausting.  Some of our successful ICF builders are only two person crews! Now, take it one step further, some crews are known to have all of a job’s material sent directly to their shop where they build the walls in the comfort and shelter of the indoors.  This allows them to work rain or shine and in extreme hot or cold weather.
