Dear Folks at Logix,
December 19 2013.
We are so very glad we chose to build with ICF. The last few weeks have been very cold -35 and -45 with the windchill. Our natural gas boiler has been giving us a ton of trouble. I shall leave the details out.
During the last 2 weeks the boiler has been working at best 5 % of the time. With a couple electric heaters we have managed to keep the house livable and not fearing frozen pipes and having to move. We built in 1997. 3 levels basement, walkout and upper grade level to the eves, with ICF. If we would have built a stick frame house, we would have been in huge trouble. I have recommended and helped friends build ICF structures. I took the (training) course locally. After the last 2 weeks, we would never consider building anything else. Next time I hear someone say ICF is too expensive, I believe I can stand my ground. I have saved the slight upcharge many times over. More so the last two weeks.
Regards from our warm safe home,
Brendan and Colleen Fort Qu’Appelle. SK Canada
