Build better basements

“An Arxx foundation creates more, low cost, ready-to-use living space, so it’s easy to sell to homeowners. All people have to do is feel the difference. With Arxx you get warm and dry, with conventional you get cold and clammy! That’s why I built my new office on an Arxx foundation.” Mark Barstow, Homebuilder

Build better basements,
faster and easier than ever before

The #1 product with championship support

Arxx is the number one Insulated Concrete Wall System in North America. Arxx has the most production facilities, the widest network of distributors, and the best product. In fact, Arxx is the only Insulating Concrete Form (ICF) that provides a solid-to-solid attachment for any finishing material (like drywall, siding or brick ties). Our patented, exposed X-web is unique! Arxx is the one with the stripes. Plus, every time you build with Arxx, you get the best technical support in the industry: The Arxx Championship Support Team.

Build faster and better with Arxx

Arxx is the stay-in-place concrete form designed by builders, for builders. It is the complete wall building system. Arxx forms are lightweight, pre-assembled, and lock together. We provide the widest product selection in the industry, so you can build walls and foundations in any shape, size, or design you can imagine.

Take control of the production schedule

Don’t let foundation subcontractors control your schedule. With Arxx, your crew can do it. We give you everything you need to build walls and foundations that are straight, plumb and square. The Arxx Hook and Arxx Lok are designed to tie and straighten stacked courses in any weather. We provide an OSHA compliant bracing and scaffolding system, so your crew can work safely and efficiently, in complex site conditions like slopes with stepped footings.

Arxx is perfect for basements

Arxx forms are 16¾" high, so six courses stack to a finished ceiling height of 8'1". Add another row of 12" high forms, and you get a 9'1" finished basement. It’s easy. You can protect the foundation with our peel-and-stick moisture barrier, or use our premium damp proofing, Arxx Maxx Foundation Wrap.

Get stronger concrete and build year round

Arxx forms are stay-in-place, so your concrete gets a slow, moist cure for maximum strength. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the middle of winter, or the hottest day of the summer – the Arxx form insulates the concrete from temperature extremes, so you can build year round. (To get the same strength with conventional forms, you’d have to leave forms up for an extended period and slow down production.)

Add value to your bottom line

The cost to build an Arxx finished foundation is about the same as a conventional foundation. (Actual costs vary by region. Call your Arxx Regional Manager at 1-800-293-3210 for more information.) What’s more, you are building great value for your customers: a warm, dry, ultra-comfortable, basement. Build with Arxx. Get the number one product, plus the championship support, and win!
