The spike in lumber prices have increased the cost of an average new single-family home by more than $24,000, threatening your business and the ability to build affordably. At the same time however, the cost of concrete has remained stable, with one particular building system — insulating concrete forms (ICFs) — becoming a highly popular alternative to wood framing. ICFs are polystyrene forms that are stacked in place and then filled with concrete to form a solid wall. This webinar — sponsored by Build With Strength, a coalition of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association — provides builders with the business case for building high-quality, disaster-resilient, super energy-efficient homes with concrete.

What You'll Learn:

  • Understand how the cost of wood framing is affecting your business.
  • Understand the economic benefits of building with insulating concrete forms (ICFs)
  • Learn how builders are building with ICFs to offer their customers high-quality, disaster-resilient, super-energy efficient homes.
  • Determine how you can build more profitably and reduce risk by building with concrete.
