Building Materials: Types of Building Materials and their Uses

Introduction:

Introduction Building a house or getting it renovated is a ‘once in a lifetime’ task for most of the people. Even for construction companies and builders, every project has its own risks and rewards associated and hence every project is unique in its own senses. Amidst all these high risks and ambitions running on a construction project, how do you ensure that everything goes as planned? Simple – by micromanaging every level of the process. www.econstructionmart.com

Materials Required In The Project:

Materials Required In The Project This micromanagement starts with understanding the varieties of building materials required in the project. A project supervisor or home owner who is just starting out with building her maiden home, would depend on on-site workers or a purchase manager to buy materials as and when required. A smart supervisor or homeowner will make a list of building materials and get in beforehand. www.econstructionmart.com

1. Steel::

1. Steel: Amidst all the varieties of building materials, steel is the most crucial one. Steel serves as the fundamental material to build the entire structure right from its foundation, to all the way to its frame. There are obviously alternatives available to steel; but none of them can provide long term cost benefits, malleability, space management options at the king of structural integrity which steel provides. www.econstructionmart.com

2. Wood::

2. Wood: There were times when wood was the building block of homes and is still used in some farm houses or outhouses. That said, largely, wood is now used for doors, window panes and furniture. www.econstructionmart.com

3. Paint::

3. Paint: You can use all the interesting materials, but without the paint, the house will always look unfinished. Paint is not just for aesthetic purposes, but also important in protecting the walls from harmful UV rays, leakages and seepages. www.econstructionmart.com

4. Cement, Concrete and Bricks: :

4. Cement , Concrete and Bricks: Just like steel, this is one component without which a modern home will seize to exist. Cement and concrete are great binding agents. Many designers today are using them in interiors as well. With exposed brick walls, bricks have become an aesthetic component from being a building block. www.econstructionmart.com

5. Tiles::

5. Tiles: Many homeowners are choosing wooden flooring today. There are still areas such as bathroom and kitchen walls, which require tiles. www.econstructionmart.com

6. Pipes and Wires::

6. Pipes and Wires: There is no way that these would come in the same category; but they form the ‘nervous system’ of the house, giving its inhabitants the power and water they need. www.econstructionmart.com
