BuildBlock used in Net Zero Home Project

BuildBlock Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) are the strongest, most energy-efficient building material available and is considered the most “installer-friendly” ICFs on the market. The material can survive natural disasters better than traditional construction methods, and the tight, fully-reversible interlocking connections provide faster installation timelines.

Used to build homes, schools, churches, and other commercial buildings, the BuildBlock ICF brand is designed to produce less waste, promote energy efficiency, provide monetary savings, and creates a sense of security and peace of mind for the homeowner.

Suntuity Home’s first NetZero structure has utilized BuildBlock’s 4” ICFs for the basement, front porch, back deck, pool and driveway foundations, and 5” ICFs on all walls of the home and pool.

CertainTeed products used in Net Zero Home Project

CertainTeed’s STONE facade is a manufactured, architectural stone veneer made from natural Ledgestone that does not require mortar to install. The product brings beauty and high-quality craftsmanship to a very affordable, low maintenance, easy-to-install panelized system that provides a 92% return on investment to any new home construction or remodeling upgrade.

The materials promote moisture management as the industry’s only fully-integrated rain screen, which provides additional structure support and ample drainage to protect your investment from mold, mildew, or other moisture-related issues.

Suntuity Home’s first Net Zero structure utilizes CertainTeed’s mortarless STONE facade for its stone siding, using a fastening flange to attach it directly to the wall.
