Types of Building Materials

With blueprints for a new home, you don't worry about insulation or decor. First, you consider what building materials to use. There are many options to choose from. If you are constructing a house, the following information will be helpful in purchasing supplies from a materials merchant.

  • Concrete – A combination of aggregate and a binder, usually cement. While it dries as hard as stone, concrete actually has a low tensile strength so it is reinforced when used in construction.
  • Brick – The second material we will discuss is brick, a ceramic block used in construction in combination with mortar. It is considered one of the longest lasting and strongest products for homebuilding.
  • Vinyl – Manufactured from mainly polyvinyl chloride, this plastic product is used on the exterior of a building for decoration as well as waterproofing. It has been used on houses since the late ‘50s, but the new emerging Green movement is voicing concern about the issues in making and disposing of this material.
  • Reclaimed Lumber – This is one of the best Green materials available on the market. Reclaimed lumber is wood that is taken from the walls of condemned or abandoned buildings and used in a new construction. Because of the nature of the lumber, the stock you will find depends on the size of the building that was torn down.
  • Bamboo – This product can be used for almost anything from cabinetry and flooring to constructing an entire house. It is considered a sustainable material because the plant can quickly replenish the amount that was lost during harvest time. In fact, some varieties can grow more than 39 inches a day.
  • Cork - Another green material, this is made out of the bark of trees. This means that no trees have to be cut down to produce this textile.

    If you are looking to build a new home or improve an old building, you will need all sorts of building materials for your construction. Building materials is a broad term used to encompass all sorts of tools and supplies needed for construction. This can include everything from concrete blocks and stone slates, to ceramic slabs and wood panels. In ancient times, building materials were generally naturally occurring and could include everything from green leaves to mud sand. However, more and more materials are now man-made for added durability and convenience. Building materials do not only include the supplies necessary for the model construction of a house, but also the granite, ceramic, porcelain, and travertine stones used for both outside and inside applications. They are used for pools and walkways, as well as for kitchens and bathrooms. There are also green building supply stores that specialize in more environmentally sustainable materials. Building materials can also be used for interior work, to help the design of the home stand out. Masonry, carpentry, and roofing work use many of the same wood supply and tools that turn a house into a home. If you are interested in building materials for various projects, consider doing some research about the industry beforehand. Access your favorite online search engine and type in related keywords such as building material, model home construction, sustainable catalog, laminate tiles and others. Think about a specific project and research how many materials you will need, what types of supplies are best, and what costs are. Embarking on a building project can be a fun adventure, just make sure you are well informed before starting.
