When given a chance to build your dream from the ground up, the materials you will use are one of the most significant decisions you can make. Infinity Homes uses only the best building material to ensure that your dream will last you forever.
Nowadays, more and more people are exploring other alternative materials to use to make their build more durable and sustainable. Here are some of the materials on the rise and only gaining in popularity:
It is a wood alternative that is rapidly growing in popularity. Since it is a member of the grass family, it grows and replenishes much faster compared to trees, making it a much more sustainable option. It can be harvested three years from its planting compared to the 25-30 years it takes for trees. Another aspect that makes it an attractive alternative is that it has a high strength-to-weight ratio, giving it high compressive strength. Its durability can rival that of brick or concrete.
Including solar panels in your build brings massive long-term benefits. One of the main benefits is that solar panels are an investment. They help reduce or even eliminate your energy bills. After enough time, solar panels are more than capable of making up for the money required to have them installed in the first place. Another benefit is that they reduce our carbon footprint, around 20% less than coal-manufactured energy. It draws on the sun’s renewable energy source rather than the finite supply of coal and other fossil fuels, which is especially beneficial when living in the sunny Rio Grande Valley.
Infinity Homes wants to make sure it is always up to date with the latest trends, so in the spirit of rediscovering old trends, why not include straw bale in your home! Hundreds of years ago, the pioneers used to use this material to build their homes. It was readily available because they lived in the Great Plains and made from the waste of the agricultural industry. South Texas still has a big farming community and has an abundance of straw bales available, so rather than letting these materials go to waste, why not include them in your home? Homes built with this material can stay warm in the winter but cool in the hot summers. Straw bales give your Infinity Home both a piece of history and practical use as well.
These are only some of the many alternative materials used to build houses today. It is essential to the Infinity Homes team that your home is best suited for you and will last you a long time. So, if you think South Texas is the place for you, you can contact Infinity Homes to build your forever home.
