Why ICF?

Kinley FLA, LLC is a full-service construction firm that specializes in the sale and installation of insulated concrete form structures (ICFs). These construction components have been around for some time, but new advances are emphasizing their immense benefits when it comes to a multitude of structural types. In this region of Florida where the threat of hurricanes is always present, ICFs offer the durability to withstand hurricanes, tornadoes , and earthquakes. With their superior energy efficiency, these building materials are ideal for constructions throughout the Brevard County region.
 
 

ICFs are hollow foam blocks that can be stacked to shape in order to form exterior walls . These forms are reinforced with steel rebar and filled with solid concrete. Insulated concrete forms are nearly unbeatable when it comes to high-quality, reliably performing insulation. The exterior of the form can then be fitted with brick, stucco, or siding. Similarly, the interior form can be outfitted with stucco, plaster, or drywall. The result of this material leads to improved energy efficiency — up to 70% energy reduction. ICFs are also better than traditional building materials for reducing dust, allergens, and even exterior noise.

Knowing their amazing properties, Kinley is excited to build with ICFs because of the many benefits that they offer clients. True –they are more complex to build with than many other types of lesser materials, but we’ve become adept at their construction and, as builders, we marvel at their incredible technology. We have used ICFs to create a multitude of residential, commercial, educational, and industrial constructions. These materials can be used in a wide array of building types. If you are constructing a new building, we invite you to peruse our gallery of completed ICF projects to see what we are capable of. We can also help you develop a plan that incorporates ICFs into the conceptual design.

ICFs have so much potential to offer as well as their many benefits. We are skilled builders with many materials types, but we are always enthusiastic to tell clients about how ICFs will benefit their construction. If you have questions about this innovative building material or require more extensive information about our past use of ICFs or their installation costs, please contact us so we can answer all your questions. If you already know you wish to construct using ICFs, please keep in mind that we are leading builders who are highly skilled with these building forms.

Insulated concrete forms (ICFs) are ideal for creating wall systems that are energy efficient,durable, affordable, and are able to foster reliable comfort   noise reduction. Kinley FLA, LLC can provide and install ICFS to suit multi-type constructions that span a multitude of commercial, industrial, educational, and residential settings.

ICFs are blocks of hollow foam that are stacked to form structural walls of buildings. They are reinforced with steel rebar and filled with concrete. The result is a superior building material that offers many benefits to builders. ICFs can be used to construct residences or commercial constructions of nearly any type. After filling the form with concrete, the ICF is then applied with brick, stucco, or even siding depending on the client’s choice of materials. Electric and plumbing can be run through the form after the concrete has been poured into the form. On the interior, the ICF is typically covered by plaster, drywall, or stucco and finally fashioned with trim and other finishes. ICFs don’t make constructions “look” differently once completed, but they add immensely to their durability and energy efficiency. In essence, they have revolutionized the construction business.

Kinley FLA sells and installs ICFs for a multitude of construction projects. While ICFs aren’t necessarily easier to construct than an old-fashioned wood frame or CMU, they perform in ways that buildings of yesteryear never could. Just imagine that ICFs can achieve a 30-70% energy savings. Not only is this better for the environment, it’s ideal for the building’s owner who can count on immense cost savings on energy bills. These forms also result in improved interior air quality as they reduce outside air infiltration, which is essential for this region of Florida. They are hurricane, tornado, and even earthquake resistant.
