Twenty 6 in. Insulated Concrete Forms

Create an energy-efficient and sustainable building with SmartBlock Insulated Concrete Forms. They are a lightweight polystyrene (EPS) stay-in-place concrete form that speeds construction and yields a highly insulated wall. The finished wall will be 5.75 inches of concrete core and 2.125 inches of EPS on each side. Acoustical applications and fire-retardant properties increase the value of this construction method.

Run the SF Costs / $5.00/SF for a Site Assembled ICF?!

No, I do not recommend this product.
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.

No, I do not recommend this product.
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!

This ICF was the best for shipping costs. It folds up and saves space, so I saved money on the freight. It's a great product in an inexpensive package

Our contractor said placing the rebar was the easiest he has ever done because of the way it is put together, and will be using this Home Depot brand more. It saved us tons on the labor costs. Thanks, Home Depot, and thanks, Dan, (your sales guy) for helping us research.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Good Size & Weight, Great Value, Lots of Features, High Quality, saves labor costs, fastest to install
