As the Temperatures Fall...

Cold Weather Construction using Insulated Concrete FormsDo you have an upcoming construction project where CMU’s are bid? Will that project fall into the colder months?  Will you need to put up additional overhead into the building project to work during the colder months?  What if there was a way you could continue to build throughout the colder months, save money, and have a far superior project at the end of the build?  Would you do it?

You might be asking yourself, how can a builder speed up his construction project in the colder months and keep the cost down?  By using vertical insulated concrete forms versus CMU construction.  Here’s the breakdown on advantages of using the insulated concrete forms:  less labor is required to install an ICF system than a CMU system, less scaffolding and bracing is required, superior R-value is created by having the walls insulated immediately, freezing weather conditions require little to no modifications to construction methods, and icf walls can be panelized in our shop or yours to be ready for fast and easy installs. Vertical ICF Construction in Cold Weather

In an earlier blog post (click here to view documentation) we have a testimonial from a commercial build that broke down all of the numbers, CMU’s versus Vertical ICF.  Building doesn’t need to slow down in the winter and profits do not need to be eaten up.  Call us and we are more than happy to walk through your construction project and put together a quote or simply answer questions.  1.800.360.4634
