Our Redding, CA  Home Green Building Expertise

We here at Swanson's Contracting are not going green we have been a green builder since 2001 with Arxx wall system. We feel that there is no better way to be green than using ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) wall system by Arxx. We have Built several Homes since 2001 with this system and have found that just by using this wall system you can reduce your heating and cooling cost by 40-50%. There is no other wall system that can produce this kind of savings. 


 

ARXX EXTERIOR WALL SYSTEM: 

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. An Arxx home has much less air infiltration and fewer drafts than a conventional frame house.

The solid concrete core of an Arxx wall stabilizes the temperature in your home because of its thermal mass, so you enjoy more constant temperatures, throughout the day.

With its high R-values, low air infiltration, and high thermal mass, you can save up to 50% of energy costs compared to conventional construction, and your overall operating and maintenance costs will be much lower.

PROVEN AND TESTED SOUND RATINGS

You can easily attain Sound Transmission Classification (STC) up to 50 or higher with an Arxx wall. That means peace and quiet for neighbors on both sides of every common wall you build – perfect for condos, townhouses, and even movie theaters.

PROVEN AND TESTED STRENGTH AND SECURITY

Arxx walls are built like a sandwich with a reinforced concrete core. The structural integrity of this steel reinforced concrete core provides exceptional protection from hurricanes, tornadoes, and even rowdy neighbors.
