Welcome

Gorilla Buck Inc. decided there must be an easier way to deal with the whole ICF buck component and its attendant issues which professionals in the business know so well: the water and air leaks, the warping, the hassles of strapping the inside and outside of the typical wood buck frame. Not to mention the onsite custom cutting of lumber to match ICF wall thickness.

So we decided to develop our own buck product line guaranteed to provide you the homeowner, with an easy-to-install, cost effective and competitively priced system designed to save you from the headaches we used to experience ourselves. And that’s exactly what we believe we have come up with!

Give us a call or send us an email with any questions you might have about our products or service; we’ll answer your questions or inquiries as fast as we can. Or, better yet, we’ll send one of our local sales, manufacturer or distributors out in person. We're here to serve you.

Key Performance Benefits

A Healthier Home
Contemporary survey results show that we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors.  Unfortunately, inside air quality can be up to ten times more polluted than outdoor air with accumulated mold spores and mildew.  Use of Gorilla Buck components such as our Flashing (#GB-F), which extends protection from the concrete core to the exterior of the buck and wall, eliminates the possibility of mold or mildew around sills and jams.   A well ventilated ICF home, built with Gorilla Buck is a healthily place indeed!


Energy Efficiency
ICF homes tend to be up to twice as energy efficient as traditional homes built to code. The combined use of Gorilla Buck with its super-insulating fin structure and ICF block construction with its continuous foam insulated concrete core, provide a high thermal resistance wall system that reduces the peak heating and cooling loads of any building.  Homes built with Gorilla Buck are more comfortable, with fewer drafts, costing much less to heat and cool.


A Strong, Durable and Sustainable Home
ICF walls built with Gorilla Buck are over 8 times stronger than conventional wood-framed walls and are able to withstand extreme winds and torrential rains.  Components such as our Rebar Brackets (#GB-RbB), which mounts through the buck span anchoring  it into the concrete, as well as, our eight different weather defying buck combinations, all reflect a practical design approach to weather worthiness.

FAQ's

Every home owner has a few product questions you’d like to have answered before you go out and spend your hard earned time and money on a project in your home. Here’s a few of our answers to your likely questions:


1. Can Gorilla Buck simplify my buck installation?

Gorilla Buck is manufactured to your exact specifications; regardless of the brand of ICF you're using, it’s width or your sill, window, or door opening size. You simply call or visit your local distributor, probably the same person you’re buying your ICF block from and have him or her match your blocks specifications precisely; same core thickness, same wall thickness.

2. I want quality with value, how do I know I am getting it?

Gorilla Buck eliminates air infiltration around the edges of the buck caused by shrinking and warping, so common in standard 2” x 12” wood buck construction. This saves you in the short term from costly repairs and frustrating rebuilds and in the long term by eliminating energy sucking drafts as well as rot and mold causing moisture leaks in your home’s shell.

3. What makes Gorilla Buck any different from standard wood buck construction, really?

Gorilla Buck is manufactured to your exact specifications; regardless of the brand of ICF you're using, it’s width or your sill, window, or door opening size. You simply call or visit your local distributor, probably the same person you’re buying your ICF block from and have him or her match your blocks specifications precisely; same core thickness, same wall thickness.
