As an ICF installer here in Asheville, NC, who also lives in a full ICF home I can not more highly recommend the ICF product, but the true value of the product can not be realized until you take it to the roof. As an installer I highly recommend BuildBlock ICF's.

ICF is a great product! I highly recommend it but the roof is important also. The people at Spider Tie has a system that works great on ICF home giving the owners a complete low cost concrete home.

BlueGreen Building Concepts

As an ICF installer in Massachusetts running Bluegreen Building Concept Co also living in whole ICF home by the ocean I must to say there is no better way to build home but by ICF system

We did entire house including walls floors and roof with Amvic ICF and last March when the Northeaster hit coast of Massachusetts we did stay home and watch the madness from my living room. It was quiet and comfortable, at the same time we save up to 75 % on energy bill

We are thinking to install some solar panels and be totally off grid next year

Also my wife want to build ICF heated swimming pool so we can enjoy our outdoors more often of course run by solar for free
