The Business Case for Building with Insulating Concrete Forms Webinar
Wednesday, May 5, 2021 | 1–2 p.m. ET

The spike in lumber prices have increased the cost of an average new single-family home by more than $24,000, threatening your business and the ability to build affordably. At the same time however, the cost of concrete has remained stable, with one particular building system — insulating concrete forms (ICFs) — becoming a highly popular alternative to wood framing. ICFs are polystyrene forms that are stacked in place and then filled with concrete to form a solid wall. This webinar — sponsored by Build With Strength, a coalition of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association — provides builders with the business case for building high-quality, disaster-resilient, super energy-efficient homes with concrete.
