Resilient ICF House
Core design objectives for residential projects vary depending on the site conditions and hazards that exists. Nowadays, homes are becoming more at risk to severe storms, wildfires, termites, and floods which are now alarming issues to take under serious consideration during the early stages of a house project. Before making one of the biggest personal investments a homeowner can make, it is crucial to consider the best approach to protect the private venture and ensure the end result will meet all expectations.
