BUILDING SPEED OF PREFABRICATED HOUSE
The main advantage of prefabricated houses is the quick construction of the house. Namely, with classic construction, the start and end of construction depends on weather conditions, but with a prefabricated house, this is not a problem. You can move into a prefabricated house in just a few months from the start of building the house, while with classic construction, due to weather or other unforeseen reasons, you have to wait at least 8 months. Masonry work takes the longest, and due to hygiene reasons, experts do not recommend moving into the house before 1 year.
The construction of a classic house takes longer due to the so-called “wet construction”, i.e. the use of water in the construction of bricks and bricks, which take some time to dry. The prefabricated wooden house is built according to the principle of “dry construction”, which means that you do not need to wait for drying and moving into the prefabricated house. Dry construction can be carried out both at very high and at very low temperatures, while in houses of classical construction, freezing or cracking of the mass may occur due to too fast drying.
PREFABRICATED HOUSE ENERGY SAVING AND FINANCIAL PROFITABILITY
Prefab houses are low-energy houses whose quality construction ensures savings both on maintenance and on heating or cooling the house. In the winter months, prefabricated houses use less energy for heating than houses of classic construction. Likewise, in the summer months, the costs of electricity, which is most often used due to cooling devices in the summer heat, are reduced. Namely, prefabricated houses are wooden houses, and it is known that wood is a good thermal insulator and creates a pleasant climate in the house. The wood is built in such a way that air passes in both directions, which means that it ensures a continuous exchange of outside and inside air. A wooden house provides a healthy and pleasant place to live, and it is a better insulator than classically built houses. Wood has excellent sound and heat insulating properties, it is a durable material, and it looks better aesthetically than steel and concrete constructions.
A low-energy prefab house is more profitable than classically built houses because it enables long-term energy savings and healthier living conditions.
Prefab houses are more resistant to earthquakes than classic houses precisely because of the wooden structure, which is more elastic than concrete and bricks. While concrete and brick would crack during an earthquake, wood is elastic and adapts to ground vibrations and remains unchanged. Prefab houses also have a smaller surface mass, which also ensures greater resistance to earthquakes.
Wood, as the basic element of a prefabricated house, is a fireproof element and is the best building material. While concrete cracks during a fire, wood does not burn, but only smolders. Of course, wood burns, but when burning, wood creates a protective charred layer that has a very low level of heat conductivity. It is a basic property of wood that it chars and smolders when burning, but nowadays prefabricated houses are of high quality construction and it is almost impossible to have a fire in prefabricated houses. Wood, as the basic building material, is coated with a fire-resistant coating and thus becomes more resistant to burning. If there is a fire, it is usually not due to the wooden structure, but due to the installations in the house. In any case, wooden houses should be properly maintained in the same way as classic houses, and no unwanted situations will occur.
ECOLOGICALLY HEALTHY HOUSE
As already mentioned, the basic building material for prefabricated houses is wood. Wood naturally regulates the humidity in the house so that there is no moisture or mold in prefabricated houses, therefore air fresheners are not needed as they are in houses of classical construction.
Since wood has good electrostatic properties, it prevents the attraction of dust and pollen into the house, which is especially important for children and people who suffer from various allergies. Likewise, wood does not emit radioactive radiation or harmful gases.
