ICF building tips The following are a number of tips  put together to help with the installation of the AIM block as well as general tips that some people have maybe forgotten since their training Tip 1 - Wall tilting before pour. Always ensure that the wall is turned in towards the braces before pouring concrete. This will ensure ability to straighten the wall with out having to "pull the wall" in. Tip 2 - Rebar placement. After the first row of rebar is placed have someone cut identical rebar lengths and lay them in front of the wall. You will find that the rebar pattern like the block will repeat it self. This saves a lot of time when the rebar is handy. Tip 3 - Make your window bucks up ahead of time so that when you are building you just set them in place. Tip 4 - Level after 2 courses. The best time to level the walls is after the 2nd course has been laid. If you are shimming the the wall up then place the shim under the plastic web so there will be no compression. If the weather is right you can foam under the wall after it is level to tighten things up.
