Logo home We are in the ICF industry because we believe it is the responsible thing to do; and it is the best way to build; whether as a premium structure on a high-end custom home, or as a low cost of ownership, low maintainance home for urban housing. We seek to serve our neighbor in our vocation by ethical business practices and top-notch workmanship. 

Sustainable Homes with ICF Construction

In the last 10 years, energy costs have risen dramatically; forcing many homeowners to change their standards of living.

We hear almost monthly of another natural disaster, be it a super-storm, hurricane, tornado, flood, wildfire, or even a long power outage; leaving families unprotected at a time when they need shelter and warmth the most.

Mold-related lawsuits have made the headlines as asthma and other health problems plague more of our children.

Energy codes have made home ever tighter, leading in many cases to serious durability concerns and air quality problems. And they appear to be heading toward net zero homes.

Volatile lumber prices and changing energy codes squeeze out builder’s profits on one side, while the ever changing weather threatens to delay construction schedules on the other.

Concerned homeowners demand greater comfort, safety, and lower maintenance while at the same time requiring that their homes leave a smaller footprint on the environment.

Homeowners and builders alike worry that their subcontractors just don’t care about the details like they do, and wonder if they even understand why it matters.

Many of our clients have come to us frustrated with facing these new and increasing challenges using the same old construction practices. Many were overwhelmed with the pressures of sorting through all the hype to find products, methods, and contractors that delivered what they promised. They were relieved as they began to see how R-Value Homes had developed a system that could effectively address their concerns, utilizing a modern twist on an age-old building material: Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF’s).
