THE QUESTION IS...WHY WOOD YOU?

Tariffs, environmental constraints, the pandemic, and a resurging construction market have left home builders cornered and searching for alternative building solutions. Nudura ICF Forms are high-tech industry-leading insulated concrete forms that have proven technologies to make building easier and faster. The Nudura line of ICFs offers innovation that is exclusive to Nudura, which allows builders the ability to build and design structures with greater efficiency.

Offering superior performance when it comes to thermal bridging, resulting in even temperatures throughout your home with reduced drafts and cold spots, ensuring you are comfortable no matter what the temperature is outside by providing Performance Values saving building owners up to *60% in annual energy costs. ICF also acts as an effective sound barrier by dampening sound vibrations from unwanted outside noise, such as traffic, trains, and neighbors.

ICF walls are built with reinforced concrete and fire-retardant Expanded Polystyrene Foam (EPS), providing a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours - 4 times that of a typical wood-frame home.

Nudura ICFs in addition provide greater impact resistance and can be engineered to withstand some of mother nature's worst, like winds up to 250 mph (402 kph) ensuring that the occupants of the home are safe and secure. Nudura’s concrete embedded multi-purpose roof/ truss anchor system provides greater resistance to wind uplift forces than most other conventional systems. Structural reinforced concrete in a Nudura building offers substantially better durability and typically better results in lower life cycle costs compared to wood structures.
