According to the Insulating Concrete Form Association (ICFA), ICF homes are being built all across North America, in virtually every U.S. state and Canadian province. In the Northeast, upper Midwest and Canada, ICF homes are allowing homeowners to achieve greater energy efficiency and eliminate cold drafts. Along the Eastern Seaboard and Gulf Coast, ICF homes are valued for their resistance to hurricane-force winds. In the Southwest, ICF homes keep their occupants much cooler in the summer. And on the West Coast, ICF homes provide safety from earthquakes and fires.

In Canada, the growth rate of ICF homes is exceeding even that of the U.S., spurred by government programs to encourage the construction of more energy-efficient housing. According to the Cement Association of Canada, approximately 128,000 ICF homes have been built in North America since the early 1990s, and the growth of ICF use has been steadily increasing at a rate of close to 40% annually.

ICF construction also transcends all affordability levels, from modest starter homes to luxury estates. In many communities, local ready-mix concrete associations and ICF distributors are partnering with Habitat for Humanity to donate both forms and labor to build affordable ICF homes. Fox Blocks, for example, donates its forms or offers special programs available for distributors who wish to participate in Habitat projects in their communities.
