When deciding what materials to use for this construction project, it is necessary to take into account various considerations.
Of course, these considerations will not be applied to prefabricated houses or projects, in which hard work and research related to the choice of suitable materials for work has already been done for you. Here is a list of things that you need to carefully consider before choosing materials in /.
Cost: Perhaps the most important factor, your budget will ultimately determine the upper limits of your project in terms of the general quality and number of your materials.
Performance: for some of you, this may sound as common sense, but no matter what materials you choose, they must be efficient. In other words, you and your team should be able to cut, form, transport and use with sufficient ease of materials from your choice.
For example, you will not decide to build a log house if you do not have enough lumber, money and licenses to rent heavy equipment.
Weight: it complies with the same principles as processing, but the total weight should be acceptable, not only to ensure performance, but also taking into account the basis. If you are not a qualified engineer or do not have significant experience, fundamental calculations based on “common sense” may be insufficient.
Strength: (mainly for structural elements) is the material under consideration is strong enough for what it is planned to use? The strength can be measured or determined using many different physical properties, such as tensile strength, compression and shift, jungle module and rigidity, and many others. The transverse section of this material, the second point of the area, also greatly affects the strength.
Aesthetics: how it looks from the side? In addition to a large degree of functional part of the construction process, there are aspects of aesthetics that usually play a significant role. I say “usually” because it is not necessary for security, but exclusively for visual benefits. Why will it be used – living room or garage?
The wise selection of materials will save you countless hours, days, even weeks or months of lost time and money! This is one of the reasons why the initial stage of planning and design is so important. Because most of the design and planning is the decisive process of choosing materials.
