Do ICF Homes Cost More?
A super comfortable and highly energy-efficient home built with insulated concrete forms (ICFs) should actually cost just about the same as a conventional wood-framed home, based on the prices of various building materials we’re seeing in spring 2021.
Below grade, assuming you are planning to finish your basement, the cost of a Logix ICF foundation continues to be similar to that of a well-insulated conventional foundation.
Above grade, given the current price of lumber, the cost of high-performance Logix ICF above-grade walls are now pretty much on par with well-insulated 2×6 walls.
And in some coastal areas where masonry walls are common in residential construction, some builders are offering new homes built with Logix ICF at no extra cost versus the same home built with basic masonry walls.
There has never been a better time to invest in the superior comfort and energy efficiency of Logix ICF!
