Better Building Practices
One of the biggest issues to consider for your building project is how much do you desire to go above minimum requirements for your project. Over the years, people are shocked to learn that the building codes for the states of NC are the “bare minimum’ of what is required by law.
North Carolina uses the International Building Code for all structures in the states. One of the best ways to understand what all of this means is to cite an example of the foundation. It has been commonplace for a concrete block to build the foundations of homes all across America for a long time! The drawback is there are superior methods for strength and R-value that are minimally more expensive. A solid poured concrete wall with rebar throughout is much stronger and can achieve R-values over R 60!
Why would anyone choose a method that cracks in settling, has a single-digit R-Value, and is not as strong, to begin with? Most folks know that a strong foundation is a key to your Dream Home to rest on. The ironic thing is it is not that much more to do it right, to begin with for a warm a comfortable dream home!
