There are many good types of materials used for building, and we’ve compiled a list of them here:
First and foremost is concrete obviously. There is no stronger and better material that’s as cheap as concrete aka cement (cement is the stuff that’s in the powder form, you add water to get the finished product. We get all of our concrete from Quickcrete). Concrete is very difficult to break and is very easy to pour and mold. It’s very economical. We love using concrete for a lot of our projects.
Surprisingly, bamboo is an incredibly strong material. We use it to build homes and roofs when we need to. It’s almost free, it grows like weeds, and it’s also very durable. You would be surprsied to find out actually how strong this stuff is. If you’re ever near a bamboo forest, check it out sometime. There are some amazing things you can do with Bamboo.
Wood is an ancient material one of the oldest known to man because we’ve been building with it since forever. We have used wood to build custom homes, cabins, and many other structures. You are going to get a very nice product when you finish with wood. You can also get nice cut pieces, which we call finished wood. The only negative to wood is that it rots, and plus if you live near a coast or body of water, you might be susecptable to termites, and that’s never a fun thing. We have had many people we’ve known get bitten by termites and it damn near destroyed their home. That’s not something you want, and bamboo and concrete are to materials that are probably not going to get effected by termites or any bugs for that matter.
If you had to choose one material, go for the one that fits your budget and the one that you like most. That’s all we have to say for today, please stay tuned for more great articles soon!
