Using Recycled Architectural Material Is A Practical Way To Build A House
If you are keen enough to look for recycled architectural material from a local dump, then you can save great sums of money building your house. In fact, a seasoned eco builder constructed his house of about 1200 square feet for only $20000. That is a huge price cut off compared to if he built his house using new materials.
The beauty of using recycled materials is not only because it is cheap, but also because it is environment-friendly. With going green receiving tremendous attention these days, using recyclable materials will help reduce the need to use natural resources which are fast depleting.
There are many ways one can classify a recycled architectural material or any recycled material for that matter. A post-consumer recyclable material is a material which can still be used after the consumer has used them. Plastic bottles fall under this category. On the other hand, a pre-consumer recyclable material is made from industrial or agricultural by-products. For example, stalks are used for making roofing for a farm house after the rice grains have been extracted.
Recycled Architectural Material Components
The recycled architectural material can also take the form of materials made from recycled components, which therefore reduce the need of using natural materials. Jonite reinforced natural stones are an excellent example. Without the need for using natural stones, and by employing mineral formulation technologies, the natural base product is reinforced so that it becomes commercially viable and environment-friendly.
So if you are torn between using used materials and not having to fear not ending up with the design of your choice, using the Jonite reinforced natural stone will easily solve the problem. Your stone slabs are brand new, you get the warm, rustic appeal of natural stones in your garden, pool, driveway, and interior decor, and yet you pay for only a fraction of the real price of a real natural stone. You can get the result you want, and you didn’t even have to visit your local dump.
