House Exterior, Springfield - Peoria
Serenade homes are built built around ICF construction for peripheral and common walls. This ICF block construction system creates peripheral and common walls made of solid concrete, formed by pouring concrete into stacked, stay-in-place “manufactured” Styrofoam forms. They go together a lot like Legos blocks, where a 6" space is created between two layers of 2.5" foam, and reinforcing rods are placed and concrete poured.
The major benefit of ICF walls is the incredible strength and durability, with significant and totally passive energy savings. With these strong and reinforced walls on the main floor of the home, it also eliminates the need for a basement for safety purposes.
