Common (I-BLOCK) Myths

(I-BLOCK) are too expensive…
     (I-BLOCK) cost 5%-15% less on average compared to using traditional CMU construction. This difference can be increased by smaller HVAC requirements, energy-efficiency tax breaks, and lower utility bills.(I-BLOCK) are too complicated to use…
Building with (I-BLOCK) is like any other technology. Make sure your (I-BLOCK) installer is well trained and is familiar with the product. (I-BLOCK) in general are simple enough for DIY and even simpler than building with traditional ways.

I can get the same efficiency with CMU…
     Traditional structures can be built with high energy-efficiency ratings, but they cannot achieve the same low level of air infiltration or thermal mass (I-BLOCK) walls provide.

(I-BLOCK) also resist natural disasters like fire, earthquakes, tornadoes, high winds and hurricanes unlike wood structures.

(I-BLOCK) are only good in really cold climates…
     (I-BLOCK) are excellent in all types of climates. They provide not only exceptional insulating value, but are safer, quieter, and disaster resistant. (I-BLOCK) are future-proofed for tomorrow’s building codes today.

Concrete houses are ugly and unattractive…
     (I-BLOCK) homes look like any other home. The outside uses the same brick, rock, stucco, or siding and the inside is even more inviting and comfortable. The only noticeable difference will be slightly deeper window sills and door jambs. Oh, and lower utility bills every month.
