Residential builders and carpenters in Brisbane, need to keep up to date with the latest trends in the building industry, so that they can offer their clients the very best and latest designs and products. As a renovation expert, Jeb Built has always kept our ear to the ground looking for new ideas, designs and products that we can introduce to our clients. Here are the latest trends we have picked up:
- Steel frames for homes: Used frequently in the commercial building industry, residential builders have been much slower incorporating steel frames into their new builds. This is starting to change, because homeowners now realise that a steel frame is resistant to termites and non-combustible, which is ideal for bushfire regions. Steel frames also reduce the depth of walls, making them perfect for maximising space, as well as providing opportunities for innovative roof lines and other design features. Any renovation expert knows that maximising internal spaces is a sure winner with home buyers and a steel frame does this much better than timber.
- Render board cladding: This is a lightweight pre-finished product that is environmentally friendly, strong and durable, and even comes with insulation already fitted. With a tongue and groove system, they are simple to fit together and go up very quickly. Renovation experts appreciate the simplicity of render board cladding, because they don’t crack or peel like traditional concrete renders and save time because they are already pre-painted.
- Composite timbers: Another environmentally friendly product that is easy to work with and long lasting are composite timbers and even carpenters in Brisbane appreciate the durability of this product. Unlike hardwood timbers, these composite equivalents don’t weather or rot, can’t be eaten by termites, and don’t need oiling or other time-consuming maintenance. This is another product that any time strapped renovation expert with an eye on the profits will find fits the bill nicely.
- LED lights: For energy efficiency, you can’t go past LED lighting, as it uses up to 85% less energy than either halogen or incandescent bulbs and can be fitted to most lighting fixtures. As residential builders, all our homes are now fitted with LED lights, because homeowners appreciate the energy efficiency and lower power bills.
