Elements of an Efficient Home Building

The construction market has evolved rapidly over the last few years. Lots of prefabricated houses, terrains and tools have been invading the market putting at the customers’ disposal lots of variants of remodeling their shelter. A good example would be the sandwich construction with wood structure, covered with paneling or OSB and insulated on the inside with cotton and fiberglass. A building like this is more efficient and retains heat better than a building from traditional materials, even if their price is definitely worth taken into account. For these types of constructions two people could sometimes be enough.

However, approximately 90% of the privately-owned buildings in North America are wooden based resistance structures. Their style combines constructively simple and modern solutions which gives them many advantages over the brick construction. In the U.S. and Canada, the choice of this style construction is based on research on resistance, thermal comfort, health and environmental protection, such as resistance to earthquakes of over 8.5 degrees Richter, reduced energy expenditure, regardless of thermal comfort climate, interior moisture optimal prices, while the execution time, renovations and remodeling are no longer concerning factors.

Nowadays, a new system begins to impose on the construction market. The building is AMVIC insulated formwork system, which aims to the formation of concrete walls, monolithic type. These molds are made of two panels of expanded polystyrene, united with hard plastic straps. The effective combination of expanded polystyrene insulation with the advantages of a monolithic reinforced concrete wall is absolutely fabulous and long term resistant! A house built on this system is up to 300% more thermally efficient than a traditional system built on masonry. AMVIC is a rapidly building system so that two people can build 100 square meters per day including the pouring of concrete in the wall.

Nevertheless, the constructions made on the wooden structure are an affordable way of building while the maintenance of such buildings is not expensive at all. This type of construction provides its occupants with all comfort and requirements that they need. Whether they are houses, offices or retail space, wood construction adapts to any architectural style, primarily the traditional one. The main advantage of these constructions is that they don’t require a construction skill. They can all be done with volunteers, thing which is possible because the system is built just after such a dwelling, wood frame and walls lined up with mineral wool.
