The best decision I ever made
Building with Nexcem is the best decision that I ever made. The building material itself is outstanding. It is an easy, quick build and the end result is remarkable. The team at Nexcem is very willing to help people. l had no prior experience with this material. They guided me every step of the way. They are very helpful and very thorough. I selected materials for the exterior shell and the inside finish to take advantage of the breathable quality but there are so many options on how to finish.
Visitors remark at how sturdy and sound proof the house is. It is located in a windy place and people are always saying “this house isn’t going anywhere”. We all notice something difficult to describe which is how good it feels to be inside this house.
I like Nexcem so much that I used it for the garage as well.
Nexcem finally made it to south central Colorado
My architect David Beal of Boulder and project contractor Clark Johnson of Apex Mountain Homes had built a house in Summit County some years ago and they convinced me that the recording studio structure would benefit from this material in a few central ways. While no one in the construction business around Chaffeè County had any knowledge, conversations I heard in the community (Salida and Buena Vista) we’re very positive, and that Nexcem blocks were the new building material on the block!
The local crew quickly adjusted to a new construction model and we totally love the result.
A healthy build
My focus is on building healthy homes with natural materials, so was drawn to the idea of building walls with Nexcem block ICF’s and finishing them with clay plaster and cedar siding to create a breathable assembly. The blocks fit together well and the walls went up without much hassle.
I would use this product again.
Nexcem was excellent to work
Nexcem was excellent to work with. As a foam-based ICF installer for many years, we were hesitant to try Nexcem on a foam-free project. I can report that it really is a no-compromise product; easily addressing all energy, health, structural, and durability concerns, and was simpler for the trades than we had expected.
The Right Decision
In our custom Blue Mountain, Ontario home we elected to use Nexcem ICF products. We have been enjoying the comfort and peace of mind of this exceptional product since 2017. Nexcem excels in many situations such as hot weather, cold weather, humid weather, but where we have noticed the difference is in extreme weather. Things like high winds, extreme cold and intense heat is where Nexcem shows its ability to out-perform any traditional stick frame build. There is no question that we made the right decision, especially with more and more extreme weather being part of reality.
We love ICF
Building a custom home on the lake is a bit more of a challenge in terms of windows for view vs structural integrity for wind sheer and that sort of thing. ICF technology provided strength and versatility in terms of design. Our home is warm and has a sense of solidness that previous homes we have built and lived in just don’t have. When the storms come in we just enjoy in comfort.
Predictable service and solid support
As a builder, I rely on many people to make good on promises in order to complete a project on time. I’ve had the pleasure to work with Nexcem a couple of times, and they do what they say they will do. The quote process was informative, the delivery schedule was accurate, and the technical support was solid. Nexcem was very responsive and helpful as we worked through installation in the field. Thanks Nexcem!
Great system, and carbon conscious too.
We’ve used the nexcem system for years. It’s a great product if you’re looking for a straight forward install. Our favourite thing about it is that we’re reducing the amount of embodied carbon in our materials and providing a higher-performing foundation wall with the insulated inserts. We still use this system when building full or partial foundation walls and are glad to be using a Canadian manufactured product.
