Oklahoma City, OK– December 8, 2015 — BuildBlock ICFs, manufactured by BuildBlock Building Systems is the number one ICF brand according to a survey by Peninsula Publishing’s 2015 Brand Survey in the category of Insulating Concrete Forms. The survey is conducted online to the readers of all five of Peninsula’s building industry magazines, including Builder & Developer, 50 Plus Builder, American Infrastructure, GreenHomeBuilder, Options, and Residential Contractor.

Builder & Developer Magazine LogoThe annual Peninsula Publishing Brand Preference Study targets residential builders, architects and contractors who make major buying decisions. Independent survey responses ranking the brands they most recognized and preferred were collected from the publisher’s website. In the survey more than 870 subscribers responded and participated in this year’s brand survey, which was conducted online from August through early November.

2015 Penninsula Publishing Brand Survey Winner LogoBuildBlock ICFs are a composite energy-efficient and disaster resistant building material made from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam and Polypropylene plastic webs. They connect together and stack like building blocks, and are reinforced with rebar and then filled with concrete. The forms are permanent and stay in place providing airtight insulation for strong structural concrete wall. They are finished like any typical home and are indistinguishable from other houses on the block. They deliver extreme energy savings every month and provide disaster resistance from Mother Nature’s wrath such as wildfire, hurricanes, tornadoes and extreme temperatures.
