Insulating Concrete Forms Construction Manual
Publication date: January 1996
Alternatives to wood-frame construction have received growing interest over the last several years. The most popular alternative has been insulating concrete forms. These rigid plastic forms stay in place to provide exceptional thermal insulation. This book by the Portland Cement Association is the first construction manual for building with insulating concrete form systems. Based on the lessons of successful builders, the manual offers step-by-step instructions to guide you through every phase: design, site preparation, setting forms, placing concrete, connecting to roof and floors, installing utilities, interior construction and installing fixtures and finishes. This book is packed with helpful photographs, diagrams, tables and charts.
