Does Hobbs have an advantage over typical ICF blocks?
You do the math.
• 50% LESS LABOR
• 50% FASTER TO INSTALL
• 40% LESS CONCRETE
• 39% MORE FOAM INSULATION
• 28% MORE INSULATING R-VALUE**
• 12% COST SAVINGS

Assumptions for the above chart:
• 9’ 4” wall height (HVICF system is available in custom wall heights to fit your project)
• 9 corners, 2200 S.F. wall project (The S.F. wall area is figured based on wall length x wall height)
• Actual cost may vary depending on complexity of project, such as, but not limited to wall heights and number of openings
• Cost based on U.S. regional average and is subject to change without notice

* Labor savings is based on an experienced HVICF system installer. Actual labor savings may vary.

** Typical “Block” ICF R-value is R-24 vs. Hobbs VICF system R-value of R-33
