I.C.F. Commercial Construction in Ohio

Here are pictures from three commercial buildings utilizing TF Forming Systems’ vertical I.C.F. concrete forms.  The builder has chosen, yet again, to build with TF Forming Systems and the owners are completely satisfied with the energy savings and performance of the walls.

DIY Homebuild in Northeast Wisconsin

TF Forming Systems, Inc. was proud to help with a concrete pour this spring on the second story of a three-story Insulated Concrete Form home build. A father and son (home owner) team constructed the walls, installed the rebar to schedule, and braced the I.C.F. TF Forming Systems, Inc. was there to assist the day of the pour.

Winter Building With ICF

Insulated Concrete Forms are the best way to reduce headaches and stress when trying to get a foundation in before the heavy snow flies and the ground freezes solid. Because of the insulating nature of the 2.5″ polystyrene panels on both sides, the system creates the perfect environment for the concrete chemical reaction to take place even when temperatures dip below freezing at night. This reduces the annoyance of trying to tarp and/or blanket the foundation for days or weeks after the concrete is poured. You can relax knowing that your foundation is as strong and robust as the engineer intended.

ICF makes building foundations in the winter significantly easier.

Exemplified in the video below, a DIY homeowner organized this late December concrete pour in Northeastern, WI. Both the conventional retaining walls and the TF System ICF basement walls were poured in the same day; however, only the top portion of the ICF wall needed to be covered and protected by blankets from the cold temperatures at night, whereas the conventional retaining walls needed to be COMPLETELY covered by multiple sets of blankets to keep the concrete from freezing before a full strength cure could be achieved.
