Build your home with BuildBlock,
your complete ICF construction solution.
Congratulations on deciding to build your new home. Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) make concrete comfortable, quiet, safe, and energy-efficient. They survive natural disasters better than those built with traditional construction methods.
Traditional wood-frame construction can’t compare to the safety, permanence, resilience, and energy efficiency of walls built with insulating concrete forms.
As you begin formulating the plans for your new home, there seems to be no end to the number of choices you have to make. It’s natural to pour hours of time and effort into choosing the right paint, wall coverings, exterior finish and other aesthetics for your new home. Before you begin, take some time to decide what will be inside those walls.
WHY CHOOSE US?
Complete ICF Solution
BuildBlock manufactures a complete ICF solution for projects of any size or complexity. Form sizes from 4″-12″+
Fully Reversible Form
BuildBlock ICFs are 100% reversible. BuildBlock ICFs always fit no matter which way you turn it.
Longer Corner Forms
BuildBlock 90° and 45° ICF corner blocks are 6″ longer on each leg than the industry standard. This reduces bracing requirements, prevents corner pullout and keeps walls straight and plumb.
Molded Tape Measure
& Cut Lines
All BuildBlock ICFs have molded-in cut lines and numbered vertical cut lines. This makes it easy to get the right size each and every time.
Tightest Block Interlock
The tight interlock pattern ensures the blocks fit snugly together, don’t float when poured, eliminating time-consuming zip ties and costly clips.
6-Inch Web Spacing
All BuildBlock ICFs use webs spaced every 6-inches. This delivers more strength, straighter walls, and the strongest block on the market.
Dedicated Customer Service
BuildBlock provides customer and technical support resources for all types of users. Detailed installation manuals, how-to videos, engineering manuals, and more all to ensure your job is done right.
1″ Repeating Pattern
& Lowest Waste
Lowest waste in the industry. The 1″ repeating pattern lets you cut off as little as 1″ and still be able to fully interlock the block in a wall. Use it all in your wall. Any scraps with at least one web can be integrated into the wall without sacrificing strength.
Patented High-Density Hard Attachment Points
Each web has two high-density 450lb.+ hard attachment points spaced every 8″ vertically to attached heavy cabinetry, bracing, and more directly to the ICF.
BuildBlock webs provide embedded studs anchored to the concrete 1/2″ below the block surface to prevent thermal bridging and webs showing through finishes such as stucco or plaster.
Truly Green & Sustainable Construction
BuildBlock ICFs build a structure that will last for generations, with reduced maintenance, and few additional costs. Build it once, build it for life.
BuildBlock ICFs have a 4-hour fire rating, withstand winds in excess of 250mph, and nearly eliminates outside sound.
