Hendrick Kganyago Building materials for a beach house


Finding the structures of the houses in good condition due to the climatic conditions of the sea, are one of the biggest inconveniences for the owners of the beach houses. That leads us today to explain to our readers which are the most important materials when building a beach house that withstands the inclemency of the marine climate.


Hendrick Kganyago The materials:
Building materials for a beach house must survive the impact of moisture problems and specific weather concerns; that is, the humidity of the ocean water, the winds and extreme sunlight come into play.


1. Visual appeal
The beauty of a beach house depends on whether it fits well with the surroundings and the location of the house is very important. Regardless of what you choose, make sure your home is in harmony with the surrounding buildings. Stucco turns out to be, in this case, one of the best visual elements for beach houses, as well as wood paneling and stone cutouts on the walls.


2. The roof and its many options
Roofing materials must withstand extreme weather conditions. Using a copper metal roof or a tile roof can work well.


3. Hendrick Kganyago The beach bases or piles
Due to a high water table, you must build the house on a solid foundation reinforced with rebar, a short term for reinforcing steel. The reinforcing bars are placed inside the poured concrete, so that the strength of the concrete increases over time. Or you can build a house on stilts.


4. Safe and strong doors and windows
Windows and doors should have a vinyl coating on the wood, for example, to resist moisture in the air.
