New home or Business
a TF system
We specialize in TF System structures for homes, businesses and public buildings. The TF System is a vertically oriented Insulated Concrete Form (ICF). The TF System utilizes a structural framework and high-density polystyrene panels to construct an integrally strong concrete form. After concrete is poured into the wall form, the TF System materials remain in place to insulate and stud the walls, allowing for easy attachment of interior and exterior finishes.
Above Grade Benefits
Combine the thermal mass of concrete and the insulation value of high-density, expanded polystyrene with airtight construction and you will have a home that uses 30 to 45% less energy than stick frame construction.
Why build with ICF?
An ICF home is a legacy home
lasting 100-500 years. Your new home will have a smaller carbon footprint and an avg. of 40 fewer trees are used in the construction of an ICF home.

Green building has been in the news for several years but new trends are beginning to emerge as the housing market begins its rebound. Forecasters are expecting 35% of new homes to be considered green. Home buyers rate the most important benefit to be a healthy place to live, the home is dry, ventilated and contaminates are limited. Second is lower operating costs this includes energy, water and lower maintenance through the use of more durable longer lasting components. In addition it is expected any of the green features cost no more or have a very short pay back period to be considered. ICF can go a long way towards building a green home, it uses less energy to maintain the living environment, it is low maintenance, and it has a smaller carbon footprint. Any additional cost using ICF is quickly paid back by lower energy costs in a very short period of time.
Two weeks ago the first auction was held for energy for delivery in 2015. The results were dramatic and show what will probably happen all across the United States in the coming months. In Oklahoma, several coal-fired plants must be shut down next year and the capacity replaced from other sources. By 2026 all other Oklahoma coal-fired plants must be shut down or converted to another fuel source. While this auction was not for energy to be consumed in the four state area it is an indication of costs to come.
Energy for this 13 state region from Ohio to the east coast for delivery before 2015 averages about $16 a megawatt. The prices for delivery beginning in 2015 ranged from $186 to $356 per megawatt. While no utility will need to buy all their power from these auctions it will still increase electric rates dramatically.
With our ICF products you can build an R20 wall up to an R60 wall. An R27 wall constructed with 21/2 inch foam on both sides will result in a reduction of heating and cooling costs of 35-40 percent.
