Project Details

  • Home Owners Lambertha and Michal Vavro chose Arxx ICFs for the solidity and insulation abilities of the product, which gives them security and savings. They also liked the fact that the Arxx wall system is used in hazard areas to protect against wind-blown debris.
  • Mrs. Vavro noted that their two-storey home cost just a bit more to construct, but that the energy savings have already far exceeded any additional cost. The in-floor heating system on the main floor heats both stories of the home.
  • “We had so many options for the exterior finish, but decided to go with stone. The sub-contractor who did the stonework loved the wallsystem – he couldn’t believe how straight the walls were compared to traditional homes,” said Mrs. Vavro.
  • “Along with excellent skill, what sets the Arxx team apart during this process was they were always there when we needed them – they really cared that the build went well ... you just don’t find that with building manufacturers!” In addition, the Vavros said they received a high level of expert advice and support from the Arxx Distributor, RONA Cashway in Campbellford, ON.

ARXX BENEFITS

  • Energy Efficient - Arxx walls can produce equivalent insulation values of up to R-50. This means that you can use a smaller heating system and cooling system, and save up to and over 50% on your energy bills compared to a conventional home.
  • Strength & Security - Arxx walls can be designed to withstand wind speeds of up to 150 mph or more. Laboratory tests simulating hurricane storm damage demonstrate that an Arxx home can withstand wind-blown debris travelling at over 100 mph.
  • Comfort - Arxx insulated concrete walls virtually eliminate the “cold spots” that often occur in old fashioned frame walls, because your home is wrapped in a continuous layer of foam insulation.
  • Noise Reduction - The massive concrete core of an Arxx wall protects your home from external noise. An Arxx wall will reduce sound transmission into your home by 75-85% when compared to a conventional wood frame wall.

Testimonial

“We’ve been in our home for about a year and a half, and have not had to use air-conditioning – the Arxx system and an open window is all our house needs to stay cool!”
