People usually overlook the quality of materials required for the completion of a construction project.

Role of Insulated Concrete Forms
Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) offer a quick and easy method to construct concrete walls and the requirement for expensive insulation applications is eliminated with EF BlockTM. There is also an added benefit of accommodating curvy architectural details when using EF BlockTM as the block is easily cut and shaped to suit. Once you have installed EF BlockTM and filled the cores with Rebar and concrete, you can apply different fascias in order to customize the interior and exterior look of these block walls. Because of the manner in which EF BlockTM is manufactured, stucco and plaster can be applied directly to EF BlockTM and the opportunity to be creative in your construction is boundless.
As the demand for insulated concrete forms has increased, Earth Friendly Building Materials, LLC has strived to offer quality blocks to its customers in order to meet their construction requirements. Earth Friendly Building Materials, LLC is even offering licensing agreements to investors who wish to establish an EF Block™ manufacturing plant in their area to meet the demand for EF BlockTM.
