About the Products
Why Choose Builderscrete®?
The first thing you notice about Builderscrete® is its uniquely beautiful appearance. Each brick and block has been carefully handcrafted, adding character and elegance that is impossible to replicate. With unheard of versatility, Builderscrete® allows you to design your own brick, so that you choose the size, color, texture and shape. Builderscrete® homes attract admiration from both friends and passer-bys, and boast a great resell value.
Living in a Builderscrete® home is an absolute pleasure with its impressive sound absorption qualities and up to six times the thermal insulation of conventional bricks. This means your home can be your peaceful and ever comfortable sanctuary, while it is helping you save both money and the environment. Builderscrete’s® unique composition gives you all the benefits of bricks, yet allows you to nail or screw into it like timber. It also has less accumulative shrinkage and expansion than concrete and clay bricks—which means you can avoid nasty cracks and other problems. Maintenance is easy with the single skin range, because you never have to patch, clean, wallpaper or repaint fragile drywall internal walls.
As a landscaping product it is wonderfully easy and forgiving to place. With the ability to design your own blocks, its versatility allows you to be as creative as you like. Furthermore Builderscrete® makes a fantastic paving product because it does not become slippery like mud-bricks, also because it does not radiate as much infra-red heat, stays cooler than traditional pavers even on the hottest summer day.
The good news is Builderscrete® is designed to last for generations. Independent tests prove Builderscrete® has the highest possible fire resistance rating for building materials in Australia. It is impervious to termites and rot, and even bullet-proof! The color will not fade and the bricks blocks, panels and pavers will not wear away when exposed to extreme weather conditions. It even has superior bracing values for those in earthquake prone or hurricane areas.
Saves the Environment
From its raw ingredients to its construction to its everyday use, Builderscrete® is exceptionally environmentally friendly. Its main ingredient is recycled timber waste (cellulose), so no tree will ever be cut down specifically to make Builderscrete®. The bricks are air dried, which is vastly more energy efficient than the conventional kiln dried process of clay bricks. Incredibly, Builderscrete® greatly reduces your carbon footprint by actually trapping the carbon that would normally end up as greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. On top of all this, its fantastic insulation qualities mean Builderscrete® homes are energy efficient throughout the year.
Saves You Money
With all these advantages, you might expect these handcrafted bricks to cost you a fortune, however, Builderscrete® is cost effective from start to finish. Because our bricks, blocks and panels are typically larger and lighter than common construction materials, they are easier to lay which reduces costs and increases the speed of construction. Additionally, if you choose the single skin range, you don’t need insulation, drywall, acid cleaning (a standard procedure for clay fired bricks), paint and much more. Finally, as a Builderscrete® homeowner, you will save money on heating and cooling year in and year out.
