Spatially compact and purposefully chosen part of the building. We're talking about construction that is supposed to change our lives for the better. It doesn't matter if we are trying to build a new home or we want to take an existing building to the next level - of course for the best price. In life, it's simply worth moving forward and always reaching for an effective solution. One of them is the selection of quality materials when building a promising home or investment project. Every refuge must meet building regulations and every quality project must know the pros and cons. In order to save time, money, the correct internal layout, but also energy efficiency, we bring you an article about the best options for construction.
▪ Have you ever noticed historic buildings or churches? The brick shows here its full strength in durability.
These buildings can stand for generations, and we already know that they will stand here for a very long time.
▪ Correctly made constructions are easy to maintain.
▪ The density of the bricks leaves little room for ignition and spread of combustion.
The brick is much less flammable than other structures building materials (e.g. wood).
▪ The composition of brick, clay and slate, gives unused or damaged bricks room for use in multiple ways. Example: Paper waste bricks need less time in the kiln than conventional bricks, which saves energy and money. Paper bricks also have low thermal conductivity, which means they would be good insulators for a building. Energy would be saved once they were used in the home.
▪ Although the initial construction costs may be slightly higher, a brick building can increase the value of your house by up to 6%.
▪ Compared to reinforced concrete, which can take a while to build properly, wooden frames are built faster. The wood is lighter and easier to carry.
▪ Wood has poor thermal conductivity, but that is why it allows excellent thermal insulation during winter and summer.
Because this material contains air-filled cells, it stays cool in summer and warm in winter.
▪ The roof and ceiling can be attached to the same element. If the appearance changes at the last minute, you can easily change it one by one.
Wood products can come from local sources, purchase and installation are usually cheaper than other building materials.
▪ Although many people believe that wood is a poor sound insulator compared to concrete, the truth is that it absorbs sound waves and prevents echoes.
That's why you see many concert halls made of pure wood. The material muffles sound and creates a perfect tone in the room.
▪ You can easily make changes to wooden frames without having to spend a fortune. Wood is easier to adjust, allowing you to add things like windows and doors.
According to a study by the National Association of Home Builders, 34% of respondents chose brick as the best choice within exteriors.
This was followed by vinyl substrates (21%), stones (16%), stucco (12%), wood (7%). Respondents said they would be willing to pay a few thousand dollars for a brick.
▪ Insulating concrete formwork is a building system that uses lightweight formwork (made of insulating material)
to support concrete walls when cast and then left as insulation.
▪ The main advantage you get when using insulated concrete molds is the added structural strength that comes when you can use a reinforced concrete foundation wall. This process makes it possible to use one simple operation to obtain all the advantages that come with the structural properties of this material. This includes the insulating and airtight properties of the wall when the work is done correctly.
▪ When choosing insulated concrete shapes to be built instead of traditional straight shapes, you can trim the thickness
- you will save 25% on materials and costs.
▪ If you choose insulated concrete molds, you can also experience an improvement in your curing time of up to 25%. This gives you the opportunity to strengthen your structure. There is more value in the work, although much less time is needed to achieve results.
▪ Insulated concrete molds allow the installation of cabling and plumbing. The best practice is, after the classic procedure, to use spray foam insulation to ensure any leaks. This advantage allows the modern crawl space to become a usable area, as it allows the flow to continue air while providing owners with access to the modern amenities they require.
▪ A modular house is NOT a mobile home - it's a home that is built off-site, unlike "on-site" (the traditional way of building new houses - all documents and consumables are brought to the site, unloaded and installed as needed). Modular houses are often called prefabricated houses.
▪ Because the modules must be transported from the factory to the construction site, the maximum dimension of the module is limited (generally the maximum dimension of the module transportable on a road with ordinary trucks is 3 m x 12 m and 3,5 m high). The particular architecture of a building may require larger modules (usually larger or taller), making transportation impossible. In this case, the best building technology to be adopted would probably be prefabricated elements (or panels).
▪ Trucks carrying modules are quite large and need the right paths to maneuver and unload modules.
The best solution would again be prefabricated elements or panels.
▪ Constructions generally guarantee materials in good conditions and adherence to procedures, and thus higher quality of the final product.
▪ These houses actively save time on site.
▪ Concrete in which the steel is embedded in such a way that both materials act together in resistive forces. Reinforcing steel, bars or mesh = absorbs tensile, shear and sometimes even compressive stress in a concrete structure.
▪ Reinforced concrete has better fire resistance than steel, wood or brick, and with proper shaping can be of any shape.
▪ Concrete is a composite material consisting of cement, sand, gravel and water. It has a relatively high compressive strength, but lacks tensile strength. Concrete must be reinforced with steel reinforcement to increase the tensile capacity of the structure, ductility and flexibility.
▪ Elements in concrete are natural for our environment and reduce damage to the world. Concrete can be crushed and used in future mixtures.
This type of recycling can reduce the presence of concrete in landfills.
▪ With proper construction and care, reinforced concrete is water resistant. However, it is important to realize that the steel reinforcement inside should never be exposed. If exposed, the steel is compromised and can easily corrode, which compromises the strength of the structure.
▪ The earliest form of stone construction is known as dry stone or dry stacking. These are free-standing structures, such as field walls, bridges and buildings that use irregularly shaped stones carefully selected and positioned so that they fit snugly together without slipping.
▪ The stone is highly durable, with minimal maintenance and high heat mass. It is universal, available in many shapes, sizes, colors and textures and can be used for floors, walls, arches and roofs + it can be easily recycled for other construction purposes.
IGNEOUS: hard rock formed from the slow or rapid cooling of molten magma (e. g. granite)
SEDIMENTARY: soft and relatively porous rock formed from deposits of eroded pre-existing rock that has settled in layers predominantly on the seabed, and compacted (e. g. sandstone and limestone)
METAMORPHIC: hard and non-porous rock formed from existing rock that has been altered by intense heat or pressure (e. g. marble and slate)
▪ Stone is generally considered a durable material; but not all stones are as durable as might be expected. The durability of a stone depends on its composition, which can affect the strength, appearance and environmental factors.
▪ Stone has been the most widely used building material in recent decades, very closely linked to the natural environment. Stone walls, dikes, warehouses, farms, paving - are remarkable stone structures and functional creations.
In today's article, we approached the individual construction methods or useful building materials that have quality, durability and are promising for your upcoming construction project. Everything must be approached individually, because the factors that are most important to you - determine.
Be sure to focus on setting the price budget, on specific goals within the construction and, last but not least, on the type of building, which you are going to embark on. The K&Š MAXXUS REALITY team wishes you a productive as well as nice day.
