Riversdale Builders & Distributors
We are looking for environmentally sensitive clients who are wanting to add value and quality to their homes and buildings. At Riversdale Builders we use innovative building techniques and energy efficient building systems that provide superior structural integrity, energy savings, improved indoor air quality and safety that conventional buildings cannot provide. The components we use in the construction of an energy efficient building envelope are Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) and Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). From the concrete footings we stack the ICFs exterior walls to create an insulated basement, insulated crawl space, or insulated slab on grade. From this point above the ground level you can choose to continue with the ICFs to the roof line or switch over to the SIPs. Either method when topped with SIPs roof panels you have a structure that is going to reduce your heating and cooling costs 30% - 50% at todays energy prices and provide your family with an environment that is safer, quieter, with improved indoor air quality that has reduced construction waste and will be sustainable for generations to come.
Advantages of using ICF's & SIPs over conventional methods:
- Speed of construction
- Four times the strength of stick framed (ICF)
- Two and half times the strength of stick framed (SIP)
- Three hour fire rating
- Energy savings 30% - 50%
- Reduced sound transmission STC-56
- No outside air infiltration
- Will not support mold or mildrew growth
- Superior indoor air quality
- Downsized HVAC system
- Reduced Construction waste
