Innovative Materials to Look for in a New Home
Materials For Safety, Durability and Energy Efficient
Recently, we’ve seen a boom in home construction innovations, with many new and exciting innovative materials appearing in new homes all across the country.
These materials are high-quality and virtually ensure you’ll have a better living experience with more safety and fewer maintenance requirements.
In case you’re about to buy a new home, let’s have a look at some innovative materials you’d be lucky to find in one.
1. Safety Features
Slips, falls, and injuries can happen to anybody, regardless of age. That’s why, if you’re looking for innovative materials and features in a new home, safety features are a major plus.
All you need are a few handrails here and there, along with some non-slip flooring, touch-less faucets, and smooth, curved countertop edges. Finding a home with at least some of these features will help you sleep a bit easier at night, especially if you’ve got elderly family or children.
2. Solid Surface Materials
Solid surface materials are non-porous and feature no grout lines or connection points within them. This makes for much easier cleaning and improved durability.
Countertops made from acrylic solid surfaces, for example, are known for being low-maintenance as well as being some of the most durable and stylistically diverse materials out there.
If you find a home with solid surface materials throughout it, you can count on spending less cleaning time and a lower risk of damage occurring, such as chipping or cracking.
3. High-Quality Roofing
You can find a variety of different types of roofing around Arizona, but if you’re in the market for a new home, concrete roof tiles are a great sign.
While cheaper roofing options like asphalt or wood shakes can work, concrete roof tiles will stand up much better to our blazing heat.
They provide you with innovative materials that are a more energy-efficient option that won’t absorb heat like black shingles do.
4. Permeable Pavers
Residential permeable pavers are eco-friendly and can be used to build anything from a simple pathway to an RV parking spot or hidden grass driveway. Pavers create great designs and are incredibly durable and require almost no maintenance. They can also make a perfect pool surround.
They are very stylistically diverse, with many different types and colors of aggregate to choose from as fill material. If you find a home with permeable pavement, it’s a more eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to regular pavement.
Look for these Innovative Materials when Searching for a New Home
If you’re looking for a new home to buy, remember to keep an eye out for today’s latest and greatest materials. All of the features and materials we’ve listed here are relatively inexpensive and can be found in any average home across the country.
Finding a home with one or more of these materials means you’re likely to enjoy easier maintenance requirements, more durability, better style, a high level of eco-friendliness, and improved safety once you move in.
