OUR HOMES SURVIVE THE STORM!

Since 2007, we at Florida Green Construction have been dedicated to building hurricane-resistant ICF homes, providing our customers with a sense of security and peace of mind. The traditionally built homes on the market today are unfit to provide the safety and sanctity that our residents need and demand.

Stay safe. We build for you homes with super insulated steel reinforced, solid poured concrete ICF walls, wind mitigated roof, impact resistant glass. These homes can withstand hurricane and tornado-force winds up to 200 MPH, are fire resistant for up to 4 hours, and are sound suppressants.

It is crucial to have a home that can protect your family, your life, and your investment. The ICF house shown above in Palm Coast, built by Florida Green Construction, Inc is not just a home, it's a testament to durability. It is beautiful and strong, able to withstand hurricane and tornado force winds of up to 200 MPH.

Our commitment to building homes that can withstand the harshest of conditions is not just a promise, but a proven reality. The ICF walls, impact resistant glass, and super insulated wind mitigated roof of the ICF house in Palm Coast, built by Florida Green Construction, Inc., are the same features that protected the Sand Palace in Mexico Beach, one of the only structures standing after Hurricane Michael.

HURRICANE MICHAEL DESTROYED BEACHSIDE HOMES, BUT NOT THIS ICF HOME.


On October 10, 2018, Hurricane Michael unleashed its fury with Category 4 winds, causing widespread destruction. Almost every structure at Tyndall Air Force base suffered structural damage, and Mexico Beach saw three-quarters of its homes, municipal buildings, and businesses damaged. This is the reality we aim to protect you from.

BUILD WITH US SAFE HOMES WITH ICF WALLS
ICF walls: super insulated from both sides, steel reinforced, solid concrete walls withstanding hurricane winds and flying debris of up to 200 MPH+.


AN ICF HOME IS A SOLID CONCRETE SANDWICH

Insulated concrete forms (ICFs) make each wall, concrete is poured into 4” precast frames and lace it with lengths of horizontal and vertical steel rebar with 2 ?” expanded polystyrene insulation on both sides with effective R-29 insulation value, which results in up to 70% energy savings on monthly electric bills. The exterior walls are capable of withstanding hurricane winds and flying debris of up to 200 MPH+.

AIR QUALITY

In addition to structural integrity and energy efficiency, ICF walls drastically reduce air infiltration resulting in less dust, pollen and allergens coming in from the outside. ICF or Insulated Concrete Forms are hypoallergenic and do not contain chlorofluorocarbons, formaldehyde, asbestos or fiberglass. ICF forms are certified green material.

MOLD & TERMITE RESISTANT

Mold cannot grow in ICF forms because they are moisture resistant and do not contain a food source for the insects.

FIRE RETARDANT AND SOUND SUPPRESSANT

ICF walls are fire resistant up to 4 hours.

COMPARE THE SAFETY OF ICF WALLS TO OTHER TRADITIONALLY BUILT EXTERIOR WALLS

We have all seen the results of extreme weather and the devastation that it can cause. Wind pressure and debris driven by high winds generally present some of the greatest hazards to people and property. Build with ICF walls: save your life, save your investment!

ARXX ICF foundations and wall assembly can protect your home from wind speeds of up to 250 mph and can stop the impact of wind-borne projectiles from destroying the walls and penetrating the building interior. Check out the video and we'll prove it!



Shell Craft Commercial Structures provides ICF wall construction. This video demonstrates impact resistant windows and ICF wall's strength.

IMPACT-RESISTANT GLASS

Pella’s IMPACT-RESISTANT GLASS helps prevent forced entry. The interlayer cannot be easily penetrated, even if the glass shatters. This provides added protection from intruders and storms, meaning storm shutters are no longer necessary.

One fractured window can be the difference between an intact home and a bare concrete slab. When wind finds its way through the seams of domicile, it can cause a shift in pressure strong enough to rip off a roof. Each window in the home has three parts: an exterior pane, a small spacer, and a laminated interior pane. The exterior sheet may shatter but the interior laminated sheet is stronger. It’s forged from two panes fused around a synthetic resin called polyvinyl butyral. It has withstood two hits from a 2-by-4 traveling at 50 feet per second during wind tests. In the worst-case scenario, it will crack like a car windshield, creating a spider-web effect.

UNWAVERING HURRICANE PROTECTION

ENGINEERED ROOF TRUSS SYSTEM

Withstands up to 140 mph wind with. Hurricane straps are set in concrete walls.

STRONG TIES

Top to bottom, truss connector plates holds the house together. Fangs on the underside of the steel plate secure it to each of the wooden planks in dozens of spots. The joints can withstand hurricane and tornado force winds.

SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

Applied to the underside of the roof decking. No ridge vents or vented soffit. This minimizes the areas where the air can enter the attic space of your home. Spray foam will resist roof uplift during high wind events.

Spray foam insulation will significantly increase the structural strength of your home or building.

In this picture, you can see the roof is sealed with spray foam insulation. That way, contaminants and pollutants cannot penetrate the attic from outside. This is another important step that Florida Green Construction takes to build virtually allergen, mold, and dust free homes.
