Many people still think that prefabricated houses are "rickety", unstable or unsustainable alternatives to massive structures. In this article, you will learn how much dimensionality is now in modern prefabricated houses, which increases longevity and comfort even more.
"massive" and "prefabricated house" - a contradiction?
How is the "Massive" achieved?
The aim of this combination design is to reduce the typical disadvantages of the prefabricated building or completely avoided. One of them is the lower ability to store solid heat compared to solid houses. The targeted use of heat-insulating materials on the interior and exterior walls as well as the top tiered ceiling and the roof heat insulation can be achieved as in ordinary houses.
Soundproofing is also improved by the "massive prefabricated house": whether it is footfall when climbing stairs, moving objects or the noise of traffic - all these noises can be reduced by using insulating materials.
Will longevity be achieved? Fert Although prefabricated houses nowadays fundamentally achieve the durability of solid houses, the preservation of quality can be enhanced by reinforcements. Protective layers and insulating materials ensure that the main components such as wooden beams or base walls are protected from external influences.
Not only the weather, but also natural events such as a flood are responsible for the fact that the material of a house is consumed over a longer period of time. All the better if the reinforcing material counteracts; just here is a protection of the base material extremely useful.
What about costs and effort?
Since most prefabricated house companies are specialized in additional insulation or reinforcement of their houses, retrofitting is no problem. If this is necessary at all; Most modern prefabricated houses can be called "solid" from scratch.
If, however, you discover that the basic insulation of your prefabricated house is insufficient, it can be retrofitted. One of the simpler methods is, for example, the insulation of the top tiered floor to prevent upward heat loss. This is relatively inexpensive and, depending on the house, in the four-digit range to have.
Cost-intensive, but also effective is the insulation of the roof, for which, however, this must be removed. Even a complete insulation of the outer wall helps mostly crucial, but is much more expensive.
Tips & TricksBe sure you have more than adequate insulation during construction; this saves you work and costs afterwards.
