TF Forming Systems Project Highlight – Gortmaker Home in Missouri

By on 2/22/2016

Gortmaker-Home-Built-with-TF-Systems-TransForm-ICF-ProductOf course we at TF Forming Systems believe in building an Insulated Concrete Home but for many people, they either have not heard of using this type of material before or in some cases have been swayed from building an ICF home for various reasons.  The comfort inside the home, the energy efficiency, the safety and security and the low cost of maintenance add up to BIG savings over the lifetime of an Insulated Concrete Home.  

So, today we spotlight a home that used the TF Forming Systems, TransForm product to build a home that provides them with security, comfort, energy efficiency and so much more. The Gortmaker’s started their home in 2014 and decided to be their own general contractor.  Let’s listen as we hear from the home owner on why they chose to build with the TransForm product and the benefits that they see day in and day out.

The Gortmaker's decided on TF Forming Systems product, TransForm.  TransForm is really a revolutionary, lightweight, super-insulating hybrid concrete forming system. It was engineered to take full advantage of thermal mass properties.  After rigorous testing, TransForm has proven to be one of the strongest and most efficient wall systems available.  For more information on TransForm please visit our webpage here.
