Why Choose Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) | Homeowner
Whether you’re building a home that’s large or small, or living in the cooler North or warmer South, when you choose to build with Logix ICFs, you’ll get a stronger, more resilient and more energy-efficient home that will significantly reduce your consumption of natural resources while surrounding your family with unsurpassed comfort and safety.
We call our basements "XtraComfort Logix ICF Basements".
Homeowners will typically use their XtraComfort Logix ICF Basement as a natural extension of their living space and often find their new basement to be "the most comfortable part of their home". (Unlike many other homeowners who often just tolerate their damper, cooler and less comfortable "traditional" basement spaces.)
* Thick foam panels provide continuous insulation on the inside and outside of the basement walls.
* The concrete core is typically steel-reinforced for added strength and long term crack control and prevention. (Plus, the outer foam layer acts as a cushion, protecting the concrete core from the pressures of cyclical frost heaving.)
* Waterproofing membranes keep moisture out, leaving the basement dry and comfortable
And naturally we call our complete homes "XtraComfort Logix ICF Homes".
Quite simply, living in a home built full-height with Logix ICFs is "a completely different living experience". For cold-climate homeowners, here's why :

What people say about building with Logix.
I can virtually guarantee that your crew, if they have done an ICF foundation, will not want to go back to traditional forming methods.Bob Deeks

We did an analysis of our own 5,000 sq ft Logix home. Our natural gas consumption is about $122.50/mth and this includes a hot water radiant in floor heat system powered by a boiler and all our gas appliances and fireplaces. We are amazed how efficient our home is.Blair Grier
We are very please to have built our 1665 sq ft home (plus 780 sq ft attached garage) with Logix. Over the past year our overall electricity costs for our home and attached garage were $800, and this includes heating. This translates to about $67 per month!Don Schnittjer
We live directly across from a regional health center. When the windows are closed we cannot hear the ambulance sirens or the daily traffic past our home. We recommend that anyone building a new home consider Logix.Don Schnittjer
After considering many alternative methods of building, I decided on Logix ICF construction. I loved the idea of providing a high thermal mass that would moderate and buffer temperature extremes and provide a very high R-value. I also liked having walls impervious to termites (which I had in my Georgia home), flood damage (I helped with the aftermath of many homes in the Atlanta floods), and fire (I witnessed a few homes burn down in my previous neighborhoods.John Hoffman
