    The Advantages of ICF over CMU Construction

    The Advantages of ICF over CMU Construction

    Concrete masonry units (CMU) and insulated concrete form (ICF) walls have several features in common: energy-efficiency, durability, and good indoor environmental quality (IEQ). However, ICF is quicker and easier to install compared to CMU, which saves time and money. CMU and ICF are mass wall systems used in energy-efficient commercial and residential construction. Mass walls provide
