R-Value Homes specializes in the planning and construction of highly energy efficient homes using a combination of Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF), passive solar design, spray polyurethane foam, triple pane windows, low-energy HVAC systems, and energy modeling. Our in-house crews perform all concrete work; including footings, ICF walls, poured walls, and flatwork; as well as rough framing, window and door installation, and air sealing. We provide “turn-key” homes in the West Michigan area. Outside West Michigan, we work directly to our homeowner clients, or through your builder to “shell” in the home.

Green Construction | Energy Efficient LEED Homes Energy Efficiency

A green builder needs to constantly be evaluating new products, seeking out the latest in green building, where to buy it, learning how well it works and how long it lasts. We applaud the growth of this industry, and see ourselves as partners with the same goal--to reduce our dependence on non-renewable energy sources. Due to the high cost of renewable systems, it makes the most sense to spend the larger cost on energy reduction.

The Building Process

The wall thickness of an ICF is greater than most other wall types, so if your plan is not drawn for ICF's, you must decide if you want the exterior or the interior dimensions to remain the same. R-Value will then run a heat loss/gain analysis on the structure which takes into account the thermal mass, low air infiltration, and superb insulation of the ICF wall.
