Know more about what prefabricated building materials are.

Prefabricated building materials are used for constructions that are manufactured off side and shipped later to the final location for the assembly. Some of the commonly used prefabricated building materials are aluminum, steel, wood, fiberglass and concrete.

Materials used in prefabricated metal buildings.

Galvanized steel and galvalume are the chief materials used in the prefabricated metal buildings. Galvalume is a form of steel coated with aluminum-zinc and it is good for protect the buildings against corrosion, rust and fire. Moreover, it provides a sturdy and protective covering to the prefabricated buildings. Almost all the components of a metal building such as beams, frames, columns, walls and roofs, are made of steel. Most prefabricated military buildings use steel or aluminum frames. Synthetic materials are used for the walls and roofs. To provide enhanced security, a combination of both metal and cloth materials are used. Plastic flooring materials can be quickly assembled and are very durable.

Materials used for small prefabricated buildings.

Prefabricated building materials used for small prefabricated buildings are steel, wood, fiberglass, plastic or aluminum materials. One of the benefits about these materials is they are cheaper than regular brick and concrete buildings. So more and more people now prefer these small prefabricated buildings built with these materials. Materials like steel, fiberglass, wood and aluminum are used as prefabricated building materials for sports buildings. These materials provide flexibility and are preferred for making structures and accessories like stands and seats for stadium and gyms.

Materials used in making low cost house.

Because of some economic reasons, lost cost house is gaining more and more popularity in some areas. Prefabricated house is a good choice for this requirement. For making low cost houses, some materials like straw bale, Ferro cement, Calcium silicate products, composites and other cheap wood based materials are currently being used. Calcium silicate bricks are strong and durable. Ferro cement consists of a cement matrix reinforced with a mesh of closely-spaced iron rods or wires. In this type of construction, the techniques used are simple and quick.

Using prefabricated materials can make durable, water and fire resistant and cheap prefabricated buildings. Most of the prefabricated building materials are eco-friendly and affordable.
