What is the Best Material to Build a Home With?
All different kinds of materials have been used to build a house. People have used wood, straw, brick and concrete. When you look at the materials, you also need to look and see what you want to accomplish. The materials need to accomplish the following:
a. materials must be used that can absorb a little bit of moisture and also get rid of the moisture without damaging the material
b. materials must be used that repel a large amount of water from leaks so that leaks will be discovered and repaired before mold is formed
c. materials must form a moisture barrier near the middle of the wall
The density of the material is an important characteristic to consider when choosing the best material to build a house with. At one time, people thought that the denser the material, the better the material to use. Through testing and field experience, it has been shown that materials denser than concrete can form mold in a very short period of time and this is even when exposed directly to sun and air.
The best materials to use to resist mold is dense concrete. When the materials that makes up concrete start to cement, or harden, the PH that is produced may help to prevent the growth of mold. The moisture that makes it way in can also make its way back out before mold and mildew are formed. For less dense concrete or porous concrete, water and moisture goes in and keeps traveling in and farther away from the edges on the outside of the concrete. This means that it takes longer for the water to be removed and thus allows mold and mildew to form.
This article has discussed when choosing materials to build the house with, what they must be able to do and which material is the best material to use to meet the goals set forth when getting ready to build the house.
