Corporate Partner Spotlight: BuildBlock

Published at March 09 2020 by Hwills

The rainy season is upon us. For so many coastal areas, this also brings the threat of hurricanes. For the areas further inland, tornadoes often pop up with this season each year. So how do you keep your home standing in those high velocity winds? That is the question on so many minds. Nelson Design Group’s corporate partner, Build Block may have just the answer you are looking for. In fact, they had this to say: “BuildBlock has partnered with Nelson Design Group, a national home designer. Their entire catalog of 2,500 home plans are available to you. Find one you like and BuildBlock will discount the cost of ICF conversion when you purchase your block." Insulating Concrete Form or ICF is a hollow foam block. This is stacked in the shape of the exterior walls. Next, a steel rebar provides reinforcement. Finally, the block is filled with concrete. The end result is a safe and energy efficient home. The best of both worlds! Build Block provides a list of benefits for an ICF home: *30-70% savings in energy consumption and costs (good for your pocketbook and the environment) *Tornado, hurricane and earthquake resistant (keeping your family and belongings safe and sound) *75% reduction in outside air infiltration (less dust and allergens) *Five times quieter than a wood-frame home *Building with ICFs saves at least 10 trees per home *ICFs can be used to build virtually any home plan, using any finish – brick, stucco, siding, and more. One of the common misconceptions about ICF is that it is only good for the areas that experience extreme cold. However, ICF works great no matter your location. Who doesn’t want to save on utility bills? Who wants their dream home destroyed by a tornado or hurricane? The answers: no one! Protect your dream home today and save money on utilities today. The folks at Build Block will be more than happy to answer any questions you have about ICF. Visit their site here: www.buildblock.com.
