ICF - INSULATED CONCRETE FORM
Amvic Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are a stay in place, 5-in-1 concrete forming system incorporating structure, insulation, an air/vapor barrier and a finish attachment. It is a cost effective, resilient and environmentally friendly construction system. Amvic ICF is revolutionizing modern construction and changing the way we build for a greener tomorrow.
LEED, NetZERO and GREEN DESIGN/BUILD METHODS
ESTEZO ESTATES has been using Energy Saving Materials & Techniques in compliance with many of LEED`s building practices and stipulations long before the very late and long over due OBC Ontario Build Codes changes were made in 2015-2016.
As many builders scrambled to catch up by re-educating themselves and their tradesman, ESTEZO ESTATES just kept doing what we always have done.
ESTEZO ESTATES has always and will always build to the best standards, not because its the law, but because we take pride in doing our best.
Whatever you call it, LEED, NetZero or just plain GREEN, Estezo Estates Design/Build strategy is geared towards saving costs on energy, month after month, forever.

Preventing Rising Damp
Rising damp is prevented by isolating the concrete footing from ground moisture. While it is normal in the industry to protect the foundation wall from ground moisture with a damp proof membrane, no effort is made to protect the footing concrete. However most moisture is located at the bottom of the excavation, where the footings are located.
With impervious subsoils it is important to prevent water ponding from occurring at the bottom of the excavation. Four preventative steps should be taken: first, place a slight grade on the excavation so that ponding cannot occur; second, place a non-wicking drainage layer under the footing to enable any ground water to exit to the perimeter drain system; third, locate the bottom of the drainpipe below the bottom of the footing concrete; and fourth, use Fastfoot® to protect the concrete footing from ground moisture on the bottom, sides and top of the footing.
