Customer Questions & Answers

Do you need a footing for these?

I know on regular foundations you need a footing before the wall is built. Do these need the same.
Asked by: Shayne
All stem wall foundations require a footing to spread the load over the required area necessary to support the structure. The footing should be within 1/4" of level for best results.

What is the height and length of each block?

Asked by: rancher
Each complete block is 12" H X 40" long X 10" wide. ( The 6" concrete core has 2" of EPS insulation on each side which makes it 10" wide. ) The dimensions given in the description is a bundle of 20 blocks assembled. A bundle of 20 block assembled, will cover 66 sq. ft. of wall space.

6 in. Concrete Core 84 lb. 60 in. H x 13.3 ft. L x 10 in. W Insulated Concrete Forms (Bundle of 20) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Run the SF Costs / $5.00/SF for a Site Assembled ICF?! I was initially attracted to this system for the bundle pricing and that I could site assemble the forms. I ordered a few bundles to try out the blocks, came in fine no damage. However, assembling the forms for a basement or home would take an entire day, diminishing speed vs. ICFs that come fully assembled. Check the SF pricing also, 40" x 12" tall is 3.33 a block. At the end of the day I was going down the road of paying $5.08 a SF for a site assembled ICF. Fully assembled units in my area selling at $4.00 a SF that are 48" x 16" tall and way stronger. This product may work on smaller landscape projects, but for basements & homes will be rather difficult to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Wow, this is one of the lowest grade ICFs I have ever seen. I wonder why they're carrying such an inferior product. It's an awkward size at 12" tall and 40" long, has to be assembled onsite so adds labor, and does not even have the normal 2-1/2" of insulation on each side. To top it off, at $3.80 per sqft, it's priced like a really premium quality ICF. Not recommended!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT DO IT DO NOT USE ICF. DO NOT DO IT. I built house foundation with another brand ICF. 1) ICF ends up being much more time consuming and much more expensive than a plain poured wall, 2) takes MUCH longer, 3) forms separate from the row below, slightly, when concete is poured, leaving an open joint, robbing you of the insulation value that is so heavily touted unless you foam caulk every such joint, 4) vibration during pour is discouraged for fear of a "blow-out", resulting in voids in unvibrated or minimally vibrated poured wall, 5) waterproofing exterior sub-grade requires special and very expensive materials, 5) provides pathway for termites -- sure, they don't eat styrofoam, but they tunnel through it, where you can't see them, and ...... there goes your house. The forms by themselves, not including the cost of rebar, concrete, bracing, scaffolding, cost more than hiring a finished poured foundation done by a top rated contractor. The ICF foundation ended up costing me more than 3 times as much to DIY than it would have cost if I had just had someone else form it up and pour it. Also, ICF installation is tediously detailed so that doing it right takes an inordinate amount of time. If you really want foam in your foundation wall, the foundation contractor can do that with any poured wall. So, if you think you want ICF, just lie down until the thought goes away. You will be much better off. If this discourages just one person from trying the abomination that is ICF, then it's worth the time it took to write this.
