8 Advantages of Building a Home from Concrete
2
  • Concrete homes arent always popular in the U.S.,
    despite the many advantages they offer. With wood
    still a popular choice of house making material
    for many homeowners, its important to look at
    all your options when building a home from the
    ground up, and to carefully consider all of the
    available choices.
  • Here are 8 advantages of building a home from
    concrete blocks
  • 1.Create a low maintenance home in a damp
    location
  • If you live in an area that receives high levels
    of rainfall annually, a home built from concrete
    will not attract mold or mildew like a wooden
    frame home invariably would, meaning that you can
    better protect the structure of the building.

3
  • Make your home resistant to high winds
  • Strong winds and even cyclones and tornadoes, are
    the bane of many homeowners lives in America, but
    by building your home from concrete blocks, you
    could create a natural resistance to high wind
    speeds, and better protect your home and
    everything in it when storms strike.
  • Make your home resistant to fire
  • While the roof obviously cannot be made out of
    concrete, the rest of your home can be, and
    because cement alone isnt flammable, theres no
    better protection in the event of a fire than a
    concrete building. If you live in an area that
    experiences frequent wildfires, you certainly
    wont want your house to be made out of wood!

4
  • Lower your energy bills
  • With a home made from concrete, you can provide
    enough insulation that warm air from your HVAC
    system or cold air from an air conditioner, will
    find it hard to escape, and as such, you could
    lower your energy bills by as much as 20.
  • Make your home soundproof
  • Concrete homes have a natural layer of
    soundproofing that is ideal in urban settings,
    and can help you create your own oasis with
    little to no aural disturbance from the outside
    world.

5
  • Your home could be better for your health
  • You might not know it, but concrete homes can
    block harmful allergens, radon and other toxins
    that can be a problem when a home is made from
    other materials, such as wood. Add a moisture
    barrier to your concrete home, and you could also
    help prevent damp from forming in your home
    something that often leads to mold spores
    becoming a part of the environment, which can be
    extremely harmful to your health.

6
  • Rebuild your home for less in the event of a
    natural disaster
  • Should disaster strike your location, rebuilding
    a concrete home if it has become damaged, is far
    cheaper than if it was constructed from other
    materials.
  • Choose the blocks that best suit your aesthetic
    requirements
  • When designing your home, you can select concrete
    blocks that are rougher, for an effect that more
    closely resembles brick or stone, or choose
    smooth blocks for a sleeker, more modern look.
    Both provide the same structural benefits, so it
    simply comes down to your preference.

7
  • Dont automatically think of wood as a
    construction material when planning to build your
    own home, as concrete has a range of benefits
    that could make it a far smarter choice. If in
    doubt, or if you need more proof of its
    advantages, consult with a local construction
    company.
