Brubaker Builders specializes in ICF construction using NUDURA forms
THE PRINCIPLE IS SIMPLE.
NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are stay-in-place forms that offer you a variety of superior benefits when building your new home. NUDURA Forms consist of two panels of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam that are 2 5/8” (67 mm) in thickness and connected together with our patented web system that are made of 100% recycled material. NUDURA Forms are stacked, then steel reinforced and filled with concrete, which completes the building envelope of your home in one building step. NUDURA Forms are available in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate all types of building requirements and designs.
The performance of a NUDURA Insulated Concrete Wall System is designed to withstand some of Mother Nature’s worst. With NUDURA insulated concrete wall systems you can be sure that your home will withstand high winds, fire, the elements and the test of time. NUDURA insulated concrete wall systems provide greater impact resistance and will withstand winds of up to 402 kph (250 mph) ensuring that your family and home are safe and secure in almost any situation. The strength of the insulated concrete wall systems comes from the steel reinforced solid concrete core. NUDURA offers Insulated Concrete Forms in sizes ranging from 4 inches to 12 inches of concrete that stand between you and the elements. When compared to traditional wood frame walls, that offer only soft bat insulation and a wood frame, the strength and safety you get with NUDURA insulated concrete wall systems is far superior. Insulated Concrete wall systems like NUDURA have been used for commercial and residential structures throughout North America and have saved building owners from having to rebuild their homes and businesses.
With rising fuel costs and energy requirements we need to make the most of building technology so we can better heat and cool our homes. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms provide maximum comfort and energy solutions for your entire home providing Performance Values up to R-50 resulting in energy savings of up to 70%, when compared to traditional building methods. The superior Performance Value of NUDURA comes from the stable thermal mass that the concrete provides. NUDURA offers form sizes that provide a solid concrete core of up to 12” (304 mm), providing you maximum energy efficiency, strength and comfort.
greater home comfort & sound resistance.
Outside heat can easily travel through a typical wood-framed wall, causing thermal bridging, and creating uncomfortable warm spots inside your home. Insulated Concrete Form houses built with NUDURA® offer superior performance when it comes to thermal bridging, resulting in even temperatures throughout your home with reduced drafts and cold spots, which optimizes energy performance.
NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms act as an effective sound barrier, filtering out unwanted noise. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms dampen sound vibrations from unwanted outside noise, such as, traffic, trains and neighbors. A NUDURA Insulated Concrete Form house creates the ultimate in home comfort.
