One of the features of our home that we always liked related to the way it was originally constructed. Unlike many modern brick homes, which are often wood frame with an outer brick veneer, our home is framed with cinder block and steel. Although when our home was constructed over 40 years ago, there were no readily available insulating concrete , the mere combination of cinderblock and brick helped to make our home relatively efficient. We are now considering a major addition to our home. If we ultimately decide to proceed, I expect that we will look to a company like Durisol Build to provide insulating concrete products to ensure that any new addition provides even better strength and insulation as the original structure. As we are nearing the completion of the second phase of our home renovation in our basement area, I expect that we will turn our focus to a major additio0n sometime after the holiday season.
