Transcript of "Homeowner Presentation 2008"

  1. 2. What is NUDURA ? <ul><li>NUDURA, commonly known as an insulated concrete form, is comprised of two layers of foam insulation </li></ul><ul><li>Insulated material is usually manufactured of expanded or extruded polystyrene (EPS) </li></ul><ul><li>Two layers of insulation are held together with webbing or ties creating a hollow block which acts as a form for a steel reinforced concrete center </li></ul><ul><li>Ties within NUDURA keep rebar placement firm during pouring of concrete </li></ul><ul><li>Resulting blocks are stacked like building blocks through interlock placement </li></ul><ul><li>Concrete is poured within the hollow form to create a solid 4” to 8” core </li></ul><ul><li>The result is a solid insulated wall assembly with good thermal resistance </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>NUDURA construction takes framing, insulating and wrapping a building </li></ul><ul><li>and ties it all into one process </li></ul><ul><li>Almost any finish can be applied to the inside and outside of NUDURA </li></ul><ul><li>There are virtually NO design limitations when building with NUDURA </li></ul>
  3. 4. Radius Flooring or Roof Decks Pool Gable
  4. 5. <ul><li>Webbing and fastening strips provide a face on the NUDURA form to fasten </li></ul><ul><li>internal and external finishes </li></ul><ul><li>Webbing is usually produced of polypropylene which will not deteriorate over </li></ul><ul><li>time when embedded in concrete </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>Once concrete is placed in a NUDURA form, the wall becomes airtight. </li></ul><ul><li>The performance – structural, thermal, moisture, acoustic, of a NUDURA wall is in most cases superior to a wood or steel framed wall (up to 3X more sound resistant than a typical wood frame) </li></ul><ul><li>Designed to withstand high wind, fire, elements, and the test of time </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>When building with NUDURA, you can breath easier knowing the air quality of a NUDURA home is better than the outside air. </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>Resulting structure is very strong and easily exceeds code </li></ul><ul><li>requirements for tornado and hurricane prone areas </li></ul><ul><ul><li>up to 9X stronger than a typical wood frame structure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>can withstand 250 mph winds </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Most homeowners have found that building with a NUDURA system resulted in, reduced day to day costs, lower insurance premiums while at the same time increased the resale value </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>Energy Efficiency </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lack of thermal bridging, thermal mass, and air tightness are real, measurable and significant benefits of NUDURA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Up to 70% heating cost savings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Thermal resistance of R22 (6” form unit) with performance running up to R50 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Thermal performance of an assembled wall can be double that of a typical wood framed wall, dependant on certain climatic conditions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Up to 9X more resistant to thermal bridging than a typical wood framed home </li></ul></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>Water Vapor Transmission </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can sustain flooding with no structural damage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NUDURA as a high mass substrate is not susceptible to: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dry rot </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Termites </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mold </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li>Fire / Flammability Resistance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Up to 4x more fire resistant than a typical wood framed wall </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Non-combustible self extinguishing construction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Concrete core provides a fire resistance rating of up to 4 hours. Rating is based on how long you can safely get out of the building. Stick frame rating is 20 minutes </li></ul></ul>
  11. 12. <ul><li>Save on Labor Costs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NUDURA is designed for speed. You can realize up </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to 50% savings compared to OTHER ICFs on labor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>building the framework of your home with NUDURA. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You can save even more, compared to building a </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>typical wood framed wall. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Overall cost is within 5-7%. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Reduced Maintenance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Conventional construction is prone to maintenance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>problems such as drywall pops and basement leaks. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Building with NUDURA solves these problems, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>gives you a stronger, more durable, and more energy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>efficient home. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Save on Sub-Trades </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use NUDURA and you won’t need to sub-contract out the foundation. Less delays, and less costs. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 13. What are the costs? <ul><li>This will compound itself each year that energy costs rise along with the added benefits of comfort, security, sound performance, resale value, etc </li></ul><ul><li>Why would you consider anything else? </li></ul>50% savings $72 $145 Energy $29/month less $1,595 $1,624 Monthly Cost 20% savings $48 $60 Insurance .15% tax rate $312 $300 Taxes 7.5% interest $1,163 $1,119 P & I 4.0% more $208,000 $200,000 Purchase Price Comments Concrete House Standard Wood Frame
