Full brick on outer of ICF

Recommended Posts

Can you use a full brick wall against an ICF wall as opposed to brick slips? If so, how do you tie them in?

Presumably you could cast them in at the pour stage, Not sure how the coursing would work out though.

Yes. You just build up against with mortar in between the ICF and brick. I'd add in wavy wall ties now and again - you can get ones that are a screw or point on one end that you can attach to the webs in the ICF.

I think it's a standard enough detail, no need for the fancy ICF block ledge in this picture, just a few breeze blocks built up off your foundation would be fine (That's what I did)
