Similar to other industries, home construction remains subject to a series of changes mainly caused by innovations and technologies. While some changes also come with additional risks, they mainly aim to improve customer satisfaction. Nevertheless, the following are key innovative ideas to help you create better living spaces.
Make Wiring Upgrades Easy with a Chase
Today, most homeowners demand wiring upgrades for multiple phone lines, high-speed internet connectivity, and home entertainment systems. To easily avoid the common problems that builders often experience with such upgrades, you should install a PVC chase that runs from the basement to the top floor.
Build Ground-based Air Intakes
Building a home with ground-based air intakes will properly address the growing need for fresh indoor air quality, keeping your house cool in summer and warm during winter. One of the best ways to build the intake is by using a stainless steel pipe buried at six feet underground. One end of the pipe connects to the floor register as the other opens up to the yard. The intakes can be connected to each room in the house, ensuring moderate air-intake that will significantly reduce your home’s cooling and heating needs.
Choose Concrete Slabs for Outdoor Flooring
Builders have found an innovative and less-costly way of building concrete floors, which you should also consider for your house. The process involves using a structural pan to pour four-inch slabs for the flooring of decks, stairs, and steps then, dyeing and stamping the surfaces to create unique color patterns. The surfaces are not only attractive but, also durable and highly resistant to moisture and wear.
Established builders also recommend using building systems as a great way to avoid huge labor costs as the suppliers can deliver all the panels and materials for building the entire home at once. Building systems are both eco-friendly and cost-effective since they have very little to no construction wastes and, also require less labor. Overall, all the ideas discussed above can help you to create attractive and safe living spaces without any significant financial implications.
