More often than not, homeowners are using their basements as storage and living space. So, the floor between the basement and first story is no longer insulated. Not insulating your foundation leads to a high rate of energy loss through the concrete, which provides almost no insulation from outdoor air and ground temperatures. Because of concerns of home energy efficiency, today’s Energy Code requires basements to be insulated in new construction projects. ICF Construction is a high-quality way to meet this energy code with top-notch insulated foundation results.
