#201 Adrian Schwartz from C.R.C Contracting Inc is here to discuss ICF and more of his construction life

One O’clock in the morning and Manny and Carlito are still at it and thanks so much for Adrian for making the trek for such a late night or early morning show, much appreciated. Adrian began his career with ICF at the young age of 14 years old, learned so much with the right builder, then decided to get his mechanic ticket, hated it and got right back into building homes and the rest is history and will be shared on this show. Adrian has worked with and used every type of ICF block, and his preference is Amvic for several reasons.

This show is full of information and might feel a bit slow but trust us, it’s worth listening to the entire show as things pick up quick a third into the show.

Adrian walks the listeners through all the key steps associated to installing ICF and the rebar inside. ICF has increased so much during the pandemic, it is now cheaper to build with ICF than traditional lumber. Adrian dives deep into the numbers behind ICF and it’s well worth factoring in this new and old way of building. We discuss the many options of exterior cladding, pretty much anything you want can be used on the exterior as your finish cladding.

Of course, we discuss a Construction Bone To Pick with Adrian and he discusses the old timers refusing to embrace ICF and he has two words for them all, first word begins with an F and second word ends with an F. Adrian has been a part of a project that went 18 floors in ICF, very interesting story. Adrian discusses the importance of actual on site experience and no matter how many YouTube videos about ICF you watch will never teach you real on site experience.
