Making a difference, one house at a time, TF believes in helping our neighbors. By working with Habitat for Humanity, TF knows it is making a positive impact.
TF has been working with Habitat for Humanity Affiliates throughout the Midwest to provide quality, cost effective homes for those who qualify for Habitat for Humanity loans. Through its partnership with Dow Chemical, Habitat Affiliates are able to receive donated Dow Chemical rigid insulation board, which allows volunteers to utilize the Vertical ThermoFormX Insulated Concrete Forms System to assemble a super insulated concrete form. As soon as their homes are completed, Habitat homeowners experience between 30-50% energy savings, greatly reducing operating costs that homeowners are responsible for after the home is completed.
ThermoFormX is the only ICF system on the market that is able to use the donated Dow insulation board without modification to the system or the donated materials. In addition the Vertical ThermoFormX Insulated Concrete Forms system is incredibly easy to learn and use, making it a perfect match for the dedicated volunteers involved with Habitat for Humanity.
In numerous projects, Habitat Affiliates have used Dow Chemical rigid board and the ThermoFormX ICF system to build frost protected shallow foundations, as well as above-grade walls. Contact us today at 800-360-4634 to discuss how your Habitat Affiliate can tap into this amazing resource and help Habitat homeowners save money each month on heating and cooling bills.
