Pounds Homes is a believer in the use of Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF) construction to provide every home the best in structural integrity to withstand the weather events we have in Northwest Florida as well as to give the homeowner a product that is most cost effective. The performance criteria of ICF construction cannot be compared to tradition frame or block construction. The criteria is significantly greater. ICF may cost a little more during the construction phase of a home when compared to more traditional methods of construction, but you will experience a return on investment (ROI) in 3 to 5 years and enjoy the benefits for many more years to come. Depending on your view, you could say that ICF costs significantly less than more traditional framing construction. ICF ROI is so good due to superior performance related to energy conservation, health benefits, structural integrity, low maintenance costs and possibly lower insurance costs.
