Concrete – it’s a grey, dull substance. But it can make beautiful homes. Chosen for its durability, versatility, and easy transport to site, concrete is a popular choice for people looking to build or extend their home.
But this time, we’re not talking about the concrete blocks that are commonly used to construct properties and housing estates.
Poured and precast concrete is one of the most popular new ways to build a house, with more people saying goodbye to concrete blocks, and opting for the angled lines and soft curves of concrete-filled custom-made moulds.
Additives are usually added to the standard concrete mix to give it more favourable properties. Thanks to the reinforced mix, concrete houses are more energy efficient, more insect and mould resistant, and more disaster resistant than houses made from standard building materials.
The fact that concrete houses are more expensive doesn’t put people off. That’s because properties made from concrete are more cost-effective in the long run – think lower energy bills, and less maintenance and upkeep.
Combined with industrial-esque glass and steel, concrete is the perfect choice for people that not only want to make a statement, but for people who want to be more environmentally friendly when it comes to heating, and constructing their home.
