Another way Erik Homes provides sustainability in our choice of building materials is through an insulated concrete form–otherwise known as ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms). ICF is a great product made by NUDURA that better-insulates your house by keeping it cool in the Summers and warm in the Winters–not to mention decreases exterior noise. This efficiency cuts down carbon-dioxide emissions by not making your AC and heating units work more than necessary. Other than its environmentally-friendly value, ICF is body armor made for your home. With solid concrete exterior walls that are 6.5″ thick running from your foundation up to your roof, your home will be able to withstand most any extreme weather so that you and your family can sleep soundly during hurricane season.
