Nightmare Tornados Making History!

Protect against severe weather. Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) are the strongest, most energy efficient, fastest to build construction material. ICF buildings withstand high winds protecting occupants better compared to other construction types.

May 1, 2011 - PRLog -- Have you noticed that the weather is getting more extreme and labeled as "historic"?  Last winter and the winter before that, we experienced record breaking snow falls.  Sadly, according to news releases, nearly 300 people died in tornadoes that recently tore across several states.  

Something to think about.  Are America's buildings truly shelters against severe weather conditions?  Do your buildings shelter out the extreme summer heat or the extreme winter cold?  If a fire breaks out in your building will it burn completely in less than 4 hours or even less than 1 hour?  

Where do you go for safety in your home or business when the weather report advises you to take immediate cover?  Do you have a basement?  Do you really feel that you and your family are safe in your home or business in the event of fire, tornado or a hurricane?

There is a construction material that will help make your home or business a safer shelter.  Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) resists severe weather and are the strongest, most energy efficient, and fastest to build construction material. Buildings using ICFs withstand high winds and protect occupants far better compared to other construction types.

Typically, many of us watch weather reports and if a storm passes by your area you just think about how bad it was for those people who did get hit and how lucky you were it didn't hit your community.  So, you take no steps to protect against the same disasters.

On the other hand, you hear so much about building green and protecting the environment.  One important thing to remember is that you must protect yourself and your family from the environment as well.    

Yes, green is good and green is great, but It's not enough to just be green.  Most likely, many "Green" buildings can burn; or can be destroyed quickly by high winds.  Plan to use better protection from severe storms and other natural disasters by using ICFs, the best building material you can use.

Using insulating concrete forms in your building construction system will reduce your utility costs, make your building a quieter place, free of heat waves or cold drafts that you would feel through the cracks in walls or foundations with other forms of construction.

The forms are filled with concrete that form solid insulating wall columns.  This polyurethane insulation surrounds the concrete forming a barrier on the interior and exterior walls against exterior weather conditions.

Plan now and don't wait for something dreadful to happen to your home or commercial building.  Protect yourself, your family, and your business against potential severe storms and other disasters.
