We can see here two impressive HOUSES next to each other.
We can tell the difference from first sight; the house on the right side is new, but there is no difference between an old and new house if the skeleton is timber frame and brick.
The homeowner made a great decision and chose to build with ICF, and the differences that we can’t see are enormous!
They already feel the changes in temperatures; in the high heat of Feb 2021, it felt like 23 degrees; hence, they didn’t need aircon and saved the high electricity bills. The same situation today in the freezing temperature of May 2021. They feel warm and cozy.
Very quiet inside without noise disturbances from the road or the neighbours. The house has the highest BAL rating, which reduces their worries for next year summer bushfires in Sydney upper north shore. They are protected, and so their house.
Those are only a few of the benefits, and there is a lot more to it than meets the eye.
If you build your new home or even a large apartment project, it may be a wise investment to use ICF.
