Building construction materials is the stuff used for constructing buildings. Most of all, the word ‘building’ in this context refers to a structure made of materials. In fact, many naturally occurring materials, including earth, stones, wood and clay, are utilized to build structures. Besides these materials, most man-made goods are also in frequent use, some synthetic and some natural.
In most cases, building construction materials are either bought from suppliers at a very high price or are sourced from specialist manufacturers at relatively low prices. It is important for the project manager to determine the cost effectiveness of the selected supplier or manufacturer. The prime factor that has a direct impact on the overall cost of the construction project includes the selection of the wrong supplier or manufacturer.
Insulation: While most of the building construction materials are either heat-resistant or flame-resistant, insulation is something different tam lop lay sang. In most cases, the insulation used in a construction project is either straw bales or mineral wool insulation. Straw bales are extremely fire-retardant, but they are also difficult to install and require continuous maintenance. Mineral wool insulation, on the other hand, is fire-proof and non-absorbent; however, it can be difficult to install and maintain, as well as expensive.
Concrete: The most important type of construction material is concrete. There are many types of concrete available in the market. The concrete types range from precast, poured and floating concrete blocks. The concrete used in a construction project needs to be mixed with water. Most concrete solutions also contain cement and gravel as additional additives to enhance its properties.
Plastic: The most popular and widely used materials in construction projects are plastic bricks and modular buildings. The plastic is resistant to any kind of fire or any sort of adverse weather condition and it is very easy to install and maintain. There are two types of plastic – polyethylene (PE) plastic and polypropylene (PP) plastic. While the PP plastic is more fire retardant, PE plastic is more fire resistant. However, both these plastic bricks and modular buildings are less strong than cement block walls.
Green Building Construction Materials: The main advantage of green construction materials is that they are very easy to use. These materials are environmentally friendly and they last long. With green construction materials, there is no need to add any toxic stuff to the soil. These bricks can withstand any kind of harsh weather condition such as heavy rains or earthquakes. Moreover, they can save thousands of trees that will help the environment by reducing the carbon dioxide emission made by burning fossil fuels.
