Marc ICF Benefits

Builder's benefits

Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are revolutionizing modern construction and rapidly changing the way we build homes, commercial buildings and institutional structures. Marc ICF is leading this revolution by providing the highest quality and highest performance ICF on the market.

Performance

When filled with concrete, Marc ICF consistently performs and does not blow out. With Marc you can use a pencil vibrator to internally consolidate the concrete and ensure that the walls will be properly consolidated without any voids.

Ease of Construction - lightweight

Marc ICFs are lightweight, requiring little effort to lift and carry therefore greatly reducing the number of back strains and injuries from construction. The weight of 1 sq. ft of masonry wall is equivalent to the weight of over 42. sq. ft of an Marc ICF wall. Not only are compensation costs reduced, but crews are safe, much less tired and maintain strength throughout the day. Marc ICFs are easy to cut and shape making unconventional wall shapes manageable.

Reduced Costs - labor savings

Marc ICF "5 in 1" incorporates structure, insulation vapor barrier, sound barrier and attachments for drywall and exterior siding all in one step thus reducing labor requirements and construction delays. An experienced ICF crew can often complete the foundation and/or walls of a typical home in a matter of days, compared to the weeks it might take conventional framers. In addition, it only takes one crew to do the foundation, above-grade exterior walls and framing of interior walls and roof. This reduces the coordination involved between crews, and improves the structure's quality.

Waste Reduction

By using Marc over competing products you will greatly reduce waste and save money.

Minimal Tools & Machinery Requirements

Marc ICFs are lightweight, which allows you to benefit from commercial grade construction without heavy machinery costs. Forklifts, man and masonry block lifts, cement mixers, heaters and tarps, are not required for ICF construction. As for tools, only a handsaw, foam gun, portable rebar cutter and bracing are all that are required for ICF construction. In addition, electricity is not mandatory on an ICF job site.  The elimination of these ongoing soft costs from the construction site can be substantial.
