Energy efficiency

NUDURA homes have been proven to reduce home operational energy demands by as much as 60% over standard frame construction methods, and as a result, reducing the carbon footprint on the environment. A NUDURA home’s superior energy performance is the result of NUDURA forms working in conjunction with the thermal mass of a solid concrete core to provide one of the most energy efficient and airtight wall systems available today.

\

Sound resistance

In addition to better climate control, NUDURA ICF also offers much better insulation from outside noise. It’s that ability to block out noise that has more and more hotel owners turning to NUDURA ICF to help build quite hotels next to noisy traffic.

\

Long term value

A NUDURA home is built to last and retains its value longer. The main structural element in a NUDURA home is reinforced concrete, which offers greater durability and requires less maintenance and repair over its lifetime compared to wood structures.

\

Greater home comfort

NUDURA ICF offers exceptional year-round comfort for you and your family. NUDURA forms a barrier to temperature fluctuations that helps keep your home comfortable no matter how hot or how cold it gets outside. And because there are no gaps like with traditional built homes, you can say goodbye cold, drafty winter days.

\

Safety for your family

The strength of NUDURA comes from the solid concrete core. NUDURA walls are built with steel reinforced concrete and a non-toxic fire retardant Expanded Polystyrene foam (EPS), providing a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours (4 times that of a typical wood frame home). NUDURA also provides greater impact resistance and will withstand winds of up to 250 mph (402 kph) ensuring that your family and home are safe and secure in almost any situation.

Recycled materials

NUDURA ICFs are manufactured from EPS (Expanded Polystyrene). NUDURA’s unique folding web design is manufactured from 100%
recycled polypropylene and steel.

Building durability

NUDURA forms offer a structure built out of concrete, one of the most durable building materials which result in buildings that stand the test of time. Building with NUDURA means high impact resistance and maximum safety in
high wind areas.

Waste reduction

The unique 4-Way Reversible System from NUDURA creates less waste during the construction process, sending less waste to our landfills. All waste is 100% recyclable*.

Mold resistant

NUDURA forms have been laboratory tested and will not support mold growth unlike traditional wood frame structures providing healthier indoor living and working environments.

Energy performance

A NUDURA structure can reduce thermal transfer to as low as 1.9 BTU/ft2/hr (5.99 w/m2 k) even at temperatures as low as -11 deg F (-23 deg C). Building with NUDURA ICFs reduces a building’s operational energy demands, and as a result, the structure’s carbon footprint on the environment.

Improved Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

The end result is an airtight structure that enables building mechanical systems to heat, cool and ventilate the structure more efficiently, creating a healthier living or working environment. NUDURA ICFs do not emit CFC’s or HCFC’s thereby improving IAQ.

We built an ICF home and we couldn’t be happier

After living in their custom NUDURA ICF home for a couple of years they have one thing to say: “We couldn’t be happier.”  Be sure to notice how much this “concrete” home looks like anything but concrete.  

Rebuilding after a devastating tornado

A half-mile wide EF4 tornado – the strongest – hit the area near Henryville, Indiana, on March 2, 2012. It was a direct hit on David’s home and horse barn, completely leveling everything. Nothing left. None of his horses survived. When it came time to rebuild, David knew he wanted to build for strength. And that’s what he did with NUDURA ICF and the team at Holdfast.

Jonathan loves his NUDURA home – and the tiny electric bills

Jonathan is very pleased with the NUDURA ICF home him and his wife built several years ago – he’s especially pleased with the tiny electrical bills.  The Holdfast team wishes him and his wife a fun-filled retirement. 

Variety of finishes.

When people hear that you’re thinking of building your custom home out of concrete, you’re likely to get some funny looks. People (who you will now help educate) often conjure up images of concrete bunkers that look about as fun to live in as, well, a concrete bunker.

But you probably know by now that you can make a NUDURA ICF home look like any traditionally built home out there. Just take a look at these homes. You’ve probably guessed that they all have one thing in common – they are all build using NUDURA ICF. But just look at how different each one is. But the one thing they all have in common is those tiny utility bills (they’re kind of small – you might have to point them out to your friends and family – but be nice about it, ok?).

ICF basements

Insulating basement walls with NUDURA provides greater insulation performance ratings, resulting in superior energy efficiency and comfort to any home. The combination of rising energy requirements and fuel costs means that we need to make the most of building technology for insulating basement walls in homes.

Why a NUDURA basement

  • Improved energy efficiency eliminates cold spots and thermal bridging
  • Provide full height continuous EPS insulation on both above and below grade walls
  • EPS insulation material prohibits mold, mildew and rot
  • EPS insulation acts like a water barrier on both sides (waterproofing on the exterior adds additional barrier)
  • Walls include horizontal rebar preventing concrete from cracking

ICF swimming pools

Custom homes often also call for a custom pool.  NUDURA ICF is the perfect building system for custom pools.  Not only are there tremendous energy savings, but NUDURA can be used to bring any pool design to life.  

Why a NUDURA swimming pool?

  • Speed of construction – faster than other poured-in-place methods
  • Ease of handling – lightweight and easy to assemble
  • No heavy construction equipment needed for delivery, lifting, cutting or installing
  • Custom designs
  • Suitable for all finish options
  • Energy savings
  • Superior strength and longevity
