PEACE AND QUIET!
Keep the outdoor noise…..outdoors.
The sound barrier created by filling several inches of expanded polystyrene with six inches of concrete is truly one to experience. The noise reduction qualities inherent in ICF construction can reduce sound penetration through a wall by more than 80% compared to wood frame buildings.
ICF customers list “noise reduction” as the top(unexpected) benefit. So, whether you are building in a high traffic area or near an airport ICFs are the way to go if you’re looking for a peaceful environment.
