ICF Manufacturer Makes Hurricane Resistant And Energy Efficient Dream Home A Reality For A South Alabama Family

A hurricane Katrina victim researches and finds hurricane resistant building materials but struggles to find a contractor who works with insulated concrete forms. Tritex ICF Products trains an Alabama contractor how to build using Xillix insulated concrete forms and makes a home that will resist the next hurricane.

Fort Deposit, Ala.- When a consumer reporter for “Alabama Public Television” decided to build a new home, she did what any reporter would do...research. Lori Cummings producer and host of the statewide program “Alabama @ Work” began searching for the best way to build both a wind resistant and energy efficient home. Cummings says three letters kept popping up in her research; ICF, which stands for insulated concrete forms. “I decided to do a story for our television program on building with ICFs and became intrigued by the concept,” says Cummings, “it just made so much sense and I wondered why everyone wasn't building with insulated concrete forms.”

But when Cummings tried to find her own contractor to build her dream home she could not find an ICF builder. “I was discouraged, but decided to do more research. I went to the Portland Cement Association web site and started emailing block manufacturers, Tritex ICF Products responded quickly.” Cummings replies.

A few months later, General Sales Manager Thad Tobaben came with a Tritex team from North Alabama including Barry Camper, Mark Cobb and Tim Liptak along with Greenville, Alabama contractor Randall Nicholas was at the Cummings home site breaking ground on her new concrete home.

“Tritex believes in their products and the simplicity of building with our Insulated Concrete Forms,” Alabama builder Randall Nicholas caught on quickly and is already planning two more concrete homes, says Tobaben. Tritex stayed on the Cummings project until the ICF portion was complete walking Nicholas and his crew through the entire process.

Nicholas told Tritex, “I have to admit I didn't know if I was going to like building with ICFs, but we just finished the last concrete pour on the Cummings' house and I am extremely pleased with the product and how easy it is to use. I will definitely be building with Tritex blocks again.”

Cummings knows her dream home would not be a reality without Tritex ICF Products and is looking forward to living in her new home this summer. According to the Portland Concrete Association, her new home built with insulated concrete forms requires 44 percent less energy to heat and 32 percent less energy to cool than comparable frame homes. ICF constructed homes can withstand up to 225 mile and hour winds which is an F5 tornado or Category 5 hurricane.

“Tritex went above and beyond the call of duty and I will never forget what they have done for me and my family. I won't have to worry this hurricane season and I will be able to afford my energy bills even when I retire. Thank you Tritex!” Cummings says with a smile.
