Build a Safe home with ICF walls. Your family fortress.

Hurricane and tornado resistant up to 200 MPH winds, fire retardant up to 4 hours, sound suppressant homes, mold and termite resistant, highly energy efficient.

Structural Integrity. Insulated concrete forms (ICF), steel rebar reinforced 4” poured concrete walls with 21/2” expanded polystyrene insulation on both sides with effective R-29 value. Entire exterior walls are capable of tornado-force, withstanding hurricane winds and flying debris up to 200 mph.

ICF construction has a matted rebar system that is a completely poured wall. Rebar is placed in the footers, and every 18 inches up horizontally, and every 24 inches vertically. The wall is completely poured and no voids are there as in block construction.

A combination of ICF walls, wind mitigated roof and impact resistant windows and glass will ensure that your Certified Green home is your family fortress.
