The System

The combination of ICF walls and radiant-heated floors creates an unbeatable team. Together these products deliver an advanced building system that can make your next home "A Home with a Difference" .


The Walls


Insulating concrete forms (ICF) are hollow "blocks" or "panels" made of high insulated polystyrene. They are stacked like building blocks to form the walls of the structure. Reinforcing steel is added and concrete is poured into their hollow cavity. Together these well-known construction materials create a wall system that offers superior insulation and solid construction. And similar to today's children's construction sets, the design of homes using ICF is only limited by your imagination.

The Floors

Imagine warm floors on a cold winter morning. Infloor radiant heat transfers warmth from the floor directly to your body in addition to heating the air around you. The result is a more comfortable, cost-effective, energy-efficient heating system. Warm water circulates through durable plastic tubing safely embedded in concrete distributing even warmth throughout your home. In addition to warmth, concrete floors give you the flexibility to design wider, more open spaces than ever before. Together, infloor radiant heat with concrete floors provide even temperatures, a healthier living environment, design flexibility,and overall comfort.
