Almost 100 ICF Home Designs Available on New CD
Nearly 100 home designs for insulating concrete form (ICF) construction are available on a new “Home Plan CD” released last month by Reward Wall Systems.
Almost a year in development, the CD has been designed to allow home builders to easily browse design plans based on the features they most desire.
Helpful tips on the CD demonstrate the comfort and cost savings that can be attained in homes using the innovative concrete technology. The CD also includes information on the durability of ICFs and their ability to eliminate allergens, mold and noise.
While construction costs for a Reward concrete home can run from 0%-5% higher than a traditionally built house, depending on its size and design, the technology will result in savings that more than make up the difference, the manufacturer says, including as much as a 50%-80% savings on monthly heating and cooling bills and lower mainetnance and insurance costs.
Reward concrete walls also elminate cold or hot spots in the home, keeping temperatures uniform throughout, and are significantly more wind- and fire-resistant than wood-frame houses.
Located in Omaha, Neb., Reward Wall Systems was the first national manufacturer of two complete and diversified lines of insulating concrete forms for residential and commercial structures.
Customers of the company include general, residential and concrete contractors and construction supply distributors.
Reward Will Systems is a member of the Concrete Home Building Council.
