Building a new home can often be an exciting and rewarding process, but it's important to ensure that you do your due diligence during the planning phase. For example, if you are building a home on certain soil types, such as those with poor bearing capacity or expansive clay content, you may need to consider additional piles.

If you are planning to start a new construction project, you may be wondering about the best type of materials to use. About 6 months ago, I decided to carry out an extensive renovation of my home. This would involve demolishing one wall, extending the kitchen and the construction of a new patio area. I really wasn't sure which materials would be best. I consulted with a contractor and he explained the pros and cons of each material. In the end, I opted for wood and steel. I am really pleased with the end results. I hope this blog helps you to plan your construction project.
