BLUBLOC uses include single story to five story structures. Developed in Europe, ICCF building blocks has been around for 40 years. Our ICCF block can easily be cut, shaped, and stacked by using a hand saw, hole saws, rasps, and a cheap electric chainsaw. BLUBLOC makes an extremely high insulating, quiet, airtight, fire proof shell. Our proprietary MFG and BLUMIX of polystyrene and Portland Cement produces a block with the highest standards in our industry, thus setting us above all other ICF's and exterior wall options.
BLUBLOC panels are stacked, rebar placed, shimmed to level, then tacked with foam glue in place. Bracing is minimal compared to other ICF's, saving time, labor, and costs. Most bracing attention going to corners, windows, doors and garage doors . Windows and door opening frames are pre constructed and placed during wall stack. The empty cavities in our block wall, after filled with special concrete mix, will provide the "700 times stronger than wood " wall. We can provide guidance for DIY builds too.
Building with BLUBLOC
BLUBLOC is one of few cementous block ICF's with an ICC (International Code Council) number awarded. Making it much easier, for architects and engineers to specify. It also makes it much easier to pass city and county planning departments.
A BLUBLOC structure is the most superior building method, making traditional building methods outdated, inferior, and wasteful.
An average sized residence constructed with BLUBLOC removes 2500 lbs of EPS from a landfill. As an example, it is estimated Portland Oregon sends 1200 truckloads (3,000,000 lbs) of styrofoam to landfills a year.
ICC ESR AND ESI NUMBERS ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUESTS.
