Driveway paving is quite popular in the UK. It provides a heard-wearing surface for front gardens so you can park your cars, and also improves the outside appearance of a home. People will see the driveway first as they approach, so the better your driveway the bigger the impression! (You could also enhance this further with security gates and brick walls, but that’s for another article.
A block building that is concrete will be more cost effective than a home using bricks but will offer the same level of energy efficiency. This is especially important in Australia’s hot climate since these blocks tend to keep interiors cooler for longer, by trapping the cool air inside. This means that you will save a bundle on power consumption and heating, as the mass of the blocks not only keeps heat out during summer, but retains heat indoors for longer during winter.
From our series of previous articles, it is clear to see that there are many components that get into the building to make it complete. While each one of these have their different roles, they are put together concurrently. Planning is therefore very important to ensure that a harmonious process results. Moreover, the different components are usually put up by different contractors (service providers) thus it amplifies the need for proper planning.
Block building will last almost forever and requires very little maintenance. Concrete is one of the most durable materials available on the market, which means any building will retain its beauty for much longer, especially since concrete is not susceptible to corrosion or other forms of degradation. Thus, by building a block concrete, you will be investing for the long term since your building will maintain its value as it will not be susceptible to the wide range of problems other building materials come with.
