5 New Amazing Trends That Are Shaping Up The Home Construction Industry

This is 2018, time has changed and our taste, fashion sense and lifestyle completely differ from what it used to be 20 years ago. The days of large homes on small slots, that used to be a prominent feature in the 1980s, are long gone. The need for spacious houses with skylights, vaulted ceilings and two-story foyers has declined over the years.

Instead of focusing on constructing personal sanctuaries with luxurious baths and walk-in closets, people nowadays are more inclined towards a smaller house with 2.5 bathrooms. The house should be built using sustainable materials and has to be energy efficient.

Here are some new trends in the construction industry that focus on energy efficiency, environment, and modern looks to be constructed quickly yet proficiently.


Concrete rendering: the most popular choice for the 21st century                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    


Concrete rendering is one of the most preferred choices in home construction in Young or any other places in Australia. There are good reasons for it. It provides a clean, modern look that can be painted to any colour. It is also applicable for the entire house or specific feature walls to add unique flavours to your house. Moreover, it adds weatherproofing qualities making your walls durable and resistant to weather damage and leaks.

Here are some features of the rendering process that makes it stand out:

  • Light weight
  • Low Carbon
  • Highly durable lasting up to 20 years
  • Provides insulation and multiple coatings
  • Easily fits in with the groove lock system.


Steel framing replacing traditional timber



Traditionally, 90% of our houses are built from timber studs nevertheless; recently there is a boom in the use of  steel framing to construct new houses. Building your new dwellings using steel frames offer plenty of benefits especially for home construction across Boorowa city or other urban and rural areas with harsh weather conditions across New South Wales. Let us explore how steel frame construction can add benefits to the construction purposes in modern houses:

  • In urban or city areas, steel frames can be used to create smaller houses to conserve space.
  • They can be used to forge modern and unique designs to form non-conventional rooflines.
  • You can create longer spaces inside your house.
  • Because of their precise engineering, they are highly durable and resistant to any kinds of damages.
  • They are recyclable.
  • The termite proof and non-combustible properties keep it safe from bushfires and pest infestation.


Boom in the use of wood plastic composites



Also known as eco-wood, they are resourced from combining wood fibres and recycled plastics. They appear totally like wood and even smell like them too!

Since it is highly durable and weather resistant, unlike timber, eco-wood does not require weatherproofing or oiling. Additionally, due to its durable property, it is resistant to insects or pest.

It does not break easily, hence making it the ideal choice for decking, flooring and cladding. Nowadays it is mostly being used by professional house developers for external home construction purposes.


New emerging modular homes


In recent years, there is a boom in the construction of modular buildings across Young and Boorowa or any other places in Australia. Modular homes offer you many benefits over its counterparts and this include:

  • Reduced impact to the original landscape since it is constructed off-site.
  • Residential areas can be developed fast and efficiently at a very short time.
  • The construction of modular buildings can be constructed off-site while the documents are prepared.
  • They cost less than the traditionally build houses.
  • With necessary adjustments you are provided with the option to move your home from one place to another.


Lighting trends for housing


Over the years LED lighting application is increasingly becoming popular due to its energy efficiency and aesthetic appeal. LED lights use 85% less energy than incandescent and halogen lighting. Additionally, they have an estimated lifespan of up to 50,000 hours lasting for several years before needing to be replaced.

Nowadays, the LED lightings are being tuned with panel from V-TAC, which allows the owners to adjust the colours and brightness of the lighting simply using a remote.
