NUDURA ICFs VS STANDARD WOOD FRAMING?
With rising energy requirements and fuel costs, we need to make the most of the building technology that’s available to heat and cool our homes, schools, hospitals, shopping malls, and other buildings. Nudura ICFs are more environmentally friendly and cost-effective than wood, both during the construction phase and over the long term. Learn more about the benefits of choosing our ICFs over wood:
ENERGY EFFICIENT. Nudura ICFs provide superior insulation, which significantly reduces the energy required to heat and cool the home.
INCONSISTENT. Wood-framed homes are drafty and not airtight, meaning the energy performance within the home will be inconsistent.
COST EFFECTIVE. Nudura ICFs greatly reduce the cost required to heat and cool the home, resulting in up to 60% savings in the homeowner’s annual utility costs.
ELEVATED COSTS. Due to the higher energy output needed to heat and cool a home with wood framing, utility costs are substantially increased.
ECO-FRIENDLY. Nudura's webs are made from 100% recycled polypropylene, reducing waste and the house’s carbon footprint.
WASTEFUL. Wood framing contributes to global deforestation and greatly increases the house’s carbon emissions.
THE PRINCIPLE IS SIMPLE
Nudura ICFs offer a variety of superior benefits when building a structure. Nudura ICFs consist of two panels of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam that are 2 5/8” (67 mm) in thickness and connected together with our web system that is made of 100% recycled material. Nudura ICFs are stacked, steel reinforced and filled with concrete, which completes the building envelope of your structure in one building step.
Nudura ICFs are available in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate all types of building requirements and designs. Nudura also offers additional accessories, barrier solutions, cladding solutions, window bucking options and more to complete the building process, allowing you to not have to source additional materials to complete your job.
