With today’s emphasis on Green Building, Precise Form's building techniques for concrete homes are the answer for meeting current and future energy requirements. Fuel savings are created though the huge retention of energy stored in the thermal mass of the concrete home. You can also expect reductions of air infiltration and external noise inside concrete houses. Used in conjunction with our EASI-WALL System, the ICF alternative, the Precise Concrete Home Forming System will allow the finest in a Green Building concrete home approach using recycled and natural products.
The concrete house forms allow you to produce concrete homes that will be durable and strong allowing, in most cases, a reduction in insurance costs. Concrete homes are resistant to a variety of natural disasters including high wind loads, earthquakes, fires, rotting, and insect destruction. Concrete homes are the preferred building style of many builders in hurricane areas with thousands of homes built in the state of Florida alone. Concrete homes have been proven to be effective in high fire risk areas as well.
Concrete Home Design
The Precise Forms Ledger system will enable you to form and pour the walls, beams, columns, and deck of the concrete home in one continuous pour. The window and door openings are cast in place simultaneously with the walls and ceilings. The modular design of the Precise Forms Concrete Home System provides unlimited architectural designs. Precise concrete house forms are available in the attractive smooth finish or our popular decorative patterns. A pitched ledger is available for concrete homes with a pitched roof.
Fast and Affordable Concrete House Construction
The Precise Concrete Home Forming System is simple to operate, requires few tools, and little training. Precise aluminum forms are the key to fast, low-cost concrete home construction because they require far less labor than conventional wood frame construction. Using the 3’ wide, lightweight Precise forming system a small crew can form and monolithically pour an entire building level in just days. When the forms are stripped the exterior walls are complete and ready for any treatment. Since the entire structure is closed in and protected from the weather, interior finishing moves ahead rapidly without costly delays because of weather conditions.
Plumbing and electrical can be placed into the wall of the concrete home before pouring preventing the need of additional framing on the interior of the home. When combined with the EASI-WALL System, the ICF alternative, you will create a thermal barrier that meets or exceeds insulation codes in most locations.
Interior Design in Concrete Homes
Concrete columns and arches can be used on the inside of concrete homes and buildings. They help create large open spaces and can be finished off to match the style of the building. Custom design details can be purchased from various architectural design companies to enhance the columns.
