Insulated Concrete Forms are the future of construction — they elevate home comfort, boost energy efficiency, protect against intensifying natural disasters, and have predictable costs.
Read this full post to help make an informed decision about the pros and cons of both insulated concrete forms and conventionally poured concrete foundations.
Will the Wet Concrete in an ICF Wall Release Moisture Into the Home or Building as It Cures and Affect the Interior Humidity Levels?
Does the portion of the water that evaporates from an ICF wall affect the humidity inside the home or building? The answer is no! The foam panels of the ICF block are vapor barriers, so unless there are large gaps in the joints between the ICF blocks (Which is not normal at all) The evaporating moisture would not enter the home or building.
