New Course Looks at Insulating Concrete Forms
At a time when Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) are becoming increasingly popular with builders and home buyers, NAHB is introducing a course geared to familiarizing builders with the advantages and intricacies of residential concrete construction.
“Building With Insulating Concrete Forms” will be offered for the first time on Wednesday, May 25, in Richmond, Va.
The full-day course provides traditional home builders with the information needed to evaluate the potential of ICFs and begin using them, including looking at whether they make sense for a particular business and how to make the transition into becoming an ICF builder. The course also highlights the advantages and costs of ICF construction, the components and materials used, design, and important business and marketing considerations. Also included are details of ICF walls, floors and roof decks.
Created by NAHB’s Concrete Home Building Council (CHBC), the inaugural course offering is being co-sponsored by the Virginia Concrete Advisory Council and the Home Building Association of Richmond.
