The BuildBlock Installation & Technical Manual is the most comprehensive resource available to our customers when working with BuildBlock ICFs. BuildBlock includes detailed information for working with BuildBlock ICF products throughout all stages of construction. The manual provides best practices when building ICF projects of all shapes and sizes.

“Our technical staff started the revision process more than a year ago in the summer of 2014. We identified product changes, additional information, graphics and illustrations, techniques, and new products to make BuildBlock ICF projects easier.” says Mike Garret, BuildBlock CEO. “We standardized the format of our manuals for all our products which reduced the space required by 40%. The extra room allowed us to add even more content, essentially more than doubling the size of the previous manuals.”
