Peter Drivas It turns out for many architects and designers when building a question: what materials will be used? And although it does not seem to have much importance, the materials and the useful life of these will mark the discrepancy of constancy of the distribution.


In the case that we take in this article, between wood, concrete or metal in a house on the beach we will talk studying the advantages and disadvantages of each of these materials when building in that environment.


Peter Drivas Timber
One of the most traditional ways of building is using wood, its durability and resistance to beach conditions make it an ideal candidate for the construction of houses.


However, in an environment with natural conditions that affect its composition, either humidity or sufficient heat, it can deteriorate it and the house may require a remodeling at least once a year to replace the pieces of wood that are close to losing. its useful life.


Concrete
Peter Drivas Contrary to what is often thought, a concrete house on the beach is much more durable and does not need a lot of exterior maintenance to preserve its integrity. Concrete withstands any type of natural conditions that, as with many materials, contributes to its degradation.


Concrete houses don't even need much care beyond an eventual plastering and paint job. Due to this it is more usual that you receive as a recommendation from any architect is to build a house on the beach using concrete.


The metal
Peter Drivas It manages to become considerably cheaper to build your house using metal, but it does not usually withstand the salty conditions of the beach, in the long run it rusts and corrodes as it happens with steel. It is not a bad idea to use metals for the facade of the house using concrete, but as an external use it is not highly recommended.
