ICF Can Make for a Healthier Space
Indoor air quality is often an afterthought when building. Often, it’s only after living in a space and find yourself suffering from headaches, congestion, allergies and other vague symptoms that you start to notice the quality of your indoor air.
The nature of ICF construction makes for a tight building envelope, which in turn cuts down on air infiltration which can bring pollen, dust and other pollutants into your home. This also makes for a quieter, draft-free space.
Also, because concrete and foam don’t offer food for rot or mold, there won’t be any hidden surprises lurking in your walls.
Finally, since ICF foam is made without toxic chemicals, there is no “off-gassing”.
