Construction of a country house from foam blocks

After strict heat protection requirements came into force, the most promising building material today is a cellular cement concrete produced in an out -of -air method. This building material is more than a sign called foam concrete.

Advantages of construction from foam concrete blocks

The main advantage of foam concrete can be safely attributed to the high coefficient of heat transmission resistance. On this property of foam concrete, several steps are higher than ceramic and silicate brick. In addition, the construction of foam concrete allows you to achieve excellent soundproofing characteristics, which is especially true during the construction of a country house near a road route, or near railway tracks. Another indisputable “plus” is a slight density of the material, which can significantly reduce the load on the foundation of the building, which means significantly reduce the cost of building even on the most complex soils. Of course, it is worth recalling the relatively large size of the block, which allows you to accelerate the construction process.

Cellular concrete, produced by foaming, and then uniform distribution of closed air cells over the entire mass of concrete, does not burn, in this regard, construction from this material belongs to the first degree of fire resistance. The cost of a wall erected from cellular concrete below the cost of a wall built of brick two, or even three times, but its qualitative characteristics do not suffer from this. The resulting almost a perfectly flat surface, due to the exact sizes of the blocks, allows you to save on the construction even more.

Foam concrete is environmentally friendly and biologically comfortable building material. In terms of qualities, it can be compared only with wood, but the tree has a significant drawback, it burns.
