Precast homes bringing you the best Green buildings
Home building is a tedious process that usually involves heaps of waste from the construction site that pollutes the environment. In such scenarios opting for green building solutions such as precast homes seems a better decision. These prefabricated homes are built with technologically manufactured building materials, which are less harmful for the environment and also reduce the onsite wastage as well.
The benefits of prefab homes are numerous, both economically as well as environmentally. As the structures are built in factories that maintain strict building guidelines, there is minimal residue left to clutter the surroundings. These structures are made with slight modification, which generates no garbage at your housing plot, as it is done inside the factory itself. When the modular structures reach your place, they leave the dump behind allowing you to have a clean compound.
Water is a vital resource for life and we need to conserve it at the best. While building a conventional home, gallons of water gets wasted. But, prefab custom homes solve that issue by doing their bit for the mother-Earth. Their construction process involves less amount of water and during installation also they don’t need much water. As a result there is less consumption and also less wastage (as the structures just need installing on site). When you build a precast home, your yard doesn’t get dirty or muddy, thanks to the modern day technology of clean building.
Prevents air pollution
When clay bricks are made, they are baked within kilns, which require lot of raw fuel like wood or charcoal. They produce smoke, which contributes to the greenhouse effect and harms our environment. As the prefab structures are built within temperature adjusted advanced factories, there is minimal air pollution during their construction process.
Most of the precast building materials such as AAC (autoclaved aerated concrete) blocks are made of fly ash (the residue of combusted coal found in coal plants). And, many of us must be surprised to know that the fly ash actually is a pollutant for the environment. But, capturing them prevents the air pollution, as well as recycling them to form aerated concrete bricks protects the air from further pollution of baking traditional bricks.
Earth friendly foundation
Traditional houses are built upon heavy stone or concrete foundations, which keep on submerging under the ground, displacing the walls and cracking them with time. Heavier houses are even indirectly responsible for causing earthquake. This is completely opposite for a prefab house, as the load of the foundation is pretty less and the walls are light, though, they are sturdy and durable. And in case of earthquakes the box frame they are built upon allows the walls to stay firm against the calamity, causing minimal damage to the structure and lives.
Less building time, low maintenance for care taking
They come with a quick building time, saving you the waiting period and related expenses of involving manpower to look after the structure when it is being built. When a prefab home is built and being furnished within approximately 150 days, there is hardly any chance of not choosing it over a conventional home that take months and in some cases years to get finished and furnished (larger structures take more time).
