Wildfire is an increasingly serious issue in California, with fires growing bigger and becoming more frequent and destructive. Fifteen of the 20 largest fires in the state’s history have occurred since 2000 and tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed.
According to Verisk’s 2019 Wildfire Risk Analysis 4.5 million U.S. homes were identified at high or extreme risk of wildfire, with more than 2 million in California alone. People are looking for safe, durable houses that don’t easily blow away or burn.
One of the best answers is homes built using insulated concrete forms (ICFs). ICFs are forms that hold fresh concrete that remains in place permanently to provide insulation for the structure they enclose.
The ICF blocks we use is one of the strongest and most fire and heat-resistant of construction materials. It creates solid insulated walls that lockout energy, sound, fire, and weather while standing strong in tornado, hurricane, or earthquake.
OUR ICF BLOCKS CAN WITHSTAND A 2200°F FIRE FOR UP TO FOUR HOURS WITHOUT LOSING STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY.
