ARCHITECTURAL REINFORCED CEMENT CLADDING
Advanced cladding materials give your home architectural appeal, a high-quality finish, low maintenance and wonderful longevity.
Expansive glass windows welcome in light and reduce your reliance on electricity.
Plantation timber does not expand or shrink with temperature changes, does not transfer noise and has low ‘embodied energy’ making it the ideal ‘green choice’ for our frames. Timber needs only 10% -30% of the energy required to manufacture steel and less than 6% needed for aluminium. If you care about where you live, don’t consider any other material than timber for the frames of your home!
Hebel is an extremely flexible building material. It is fire and white ant resistant and has outstanding acoustic properties, blocking and absorbing sound from outside and providing excellent acoustics inside. Rendered Hebel also looks great and uses less than a ¼ of the resources and raw material of other masonry, saving on building costs and making it a sustainable choice for your home.
We use lightweight, thermally efficient roofing materials to improve the energy efficiency of homes and reduce energy bills by reflecting more of the sun’s heat. This advancement keeps the roof space cooler and provides greater thermal comfort indoors.
