renovations with cladding

Australian Home Renovations In 2018, The Dos and Don’ts.

If you’ve renovated a house before (or even an office), you’ll know how much planning, budget estimations, time with contractors, suppliers, and patience is required. A bathroom renovation for example, can take 2, 3, even 10 times longer than you imagined, and washing your hair in the kitchen sink isn’t as fun as it sounds!

So with years of experience, helping our delighted clients (some here) renovate their homes with the latest in Australian building materials, we’ve put together these Do’s and Don’ts for renovating in 2018.

Let’s get into it:

1. Do: Use the best building materials.

Always plan around your return on investment! It’s not only the use of the latest materials, like Koolwall cladding that provides remarkable insulation to help reduce heating and cooling bills, but also the resale value of your home.

Consider investing properly not only with your home’s exterior and interior wall cladding but also your windows, roof, appliance, fixtures, flooring, air-conditioning and finishes on your bench tops. All of these things will create a highly desirable home if you ever decide to pack-up and move.

2. Do: Invest in good appliances.

Consider investing in only the highest quality appliances. Over the life of your home, your appliances will be used thousands, perhaps millions of times, and quality seriously matters here.

Perhaps you know someone who has a 20-year-old washing machine that’s still going strong? That’s because they invested properly at the start, and likely save thousands of dollars over the years. Do your research and look at the best fridges, stoves, washing machines and even toasters, and you won’t have to think about it again for some decades.

3. Do: Use neutral finishes.

Think about choose stunning neutral colours for your renovations that can match any kind of furnishings and appliance. In 2018, we recommend lovely warm beiges, soft whites and greys. With these colours, you can instantly rule out design and decor challenges and are not locked into a particular style or character. Check our or Ezycoat options and colours.

Also with these neutral colours, you can go for a modern, classic or rustic Australian look and feel, which is perfect if you are the kind of person who likes to mix up your living spaces now and then. These colours also allow for brilliant, eye-popping feature walls, and are perfect if you plan on selling your home in the near future.

Now let’s look at the top 3 renovation don’ts for 2018, to see what you should avoid doing when renovating your home.

1. Don’t: Go it all alone.

Please, pretty please (from all of the Active Building Systems team who have come to the rescue on many occasions), do not try to do everything yourself. Renovations are not weekend DIY projects, and if you do it yourself, the chances are that it will take a very long time and you could feel like you’re living in a halfway house for months.

Doing your renovations all yourself can really taint the way you see your home too, so it’s best to get professionals who can turn your renovations around quickly, with the highest quality so that your new areas last the test of time.

cladding

Are You Researching Cladding For Your Home Or Townhouse? Here’s Why Koolwall Is So Popular.

Imagine a home or townhouses exterior finish that looks magazine worthy, reduces maintenance, reduces your energy costs, durable, insulates sound, has a fire retardant,  while being an environmentally friendly building product.

Sounds good right?

Well, that’s exactly why cladding is one of the most popular ways to give old buildings a new look,  create smart facades or complete cladding package for modern buildings.

At the forefront of Australian cladding is Koolwall, a reinforced polystyrene cladding that’s fire retardant, lightweight, easy to cut, fast to install and meets all of the Australian Building Codes!

Let’s jump back a little bit, and define what cladding is exactly?

According to Wikipedia; “cladding is the use of one material over another to provide a skin or layer. In construction, cladding is used to provide thermal insulation and weather resistance, and to improve a building’s appearance. Cladding is also used to control noise entering or escaping“.

But this doesn’t really do the benefits of cladding justice, so let’s go a little deeper:

1. Stunning Lifelong Aesthetics.

Be it your home, office or an entire Townhouse development project, cladding can transform an otherwise dreary structure, making it visually appealing and increasing the buildings market value.

And when it comes to aesthetics, Koolwall leads the way as the only system available on the Australian market that’s a “full cladding system”.

From the patented fixing system, Ezytrim render beads to the Ezycoat render , texture and paint, the finishing results you can achieve from Koolwall are leagues above most competitor products.

2. Remarkably Low Maintenance.

One of the biggest advantages of cladding is the minimal maintenance required. Koolwall cladding requires nothing more than a wash to maintain its newness and long-lasting resilience to the elements.

A gentle wash every  year, or when you notice dirt starting to build is all you will need. And it’s not only it’s low maintenance, Koolwall’s easy to install so you can save time there too when compared to more conventional building materials.

3. Increased Safety And Protection.

External cladding is protection. Koolwall increases the mechanical strength of your home or townhouse, improves resistance to cracking during increased temperature change, makes your building weatherproof and has strong resistance to wind, storms sunlight and rain. Koolwall also acts as a protective layer, preventing water seepage into your home’s interior.

Koolwall is a remarkable insulator too, protecting your home’s interior from absorbing extreme heat and keeping your internal temperature nice and cool. And because of it’s brilliant insulation, your home will have the best sound insulation around.

Loxo/Nasahi Panels V.S. Plasterboard For Your Party Walls.

Are you designing or building a party wall?

Also called a ‘parting or common wall’ between connecting buildings or units, your party wall materials not only affect construction time, costs and longevity, but also tenant happiness.

With a party wall, there’s a bit to consider before you build:

  • Sound and smell insulation
  • Temperature regulation
  • Fire resistance
  • Water resistance

These 4 needs sound obvious for a party wall right? But when it comes to building one, many people use plasterboard not knowing there’s an alternative, and this can result in rather unhappy tenants.

Simply because plasterboard is one of the worst insulating materials around.

Loxo/Nasahi panels are changing the way party walls are being constructed, let’s have a closer look:

1. Party Wall Sound And Smell Insulation

If you want tenants who will sell up or move out at the first chance, not having sound or smell insulation will do the job.

An elderly neighbour with poor hearing, a large family, a newborn, teenagers, a puppy. All sounds that can downright peeve you off when they are as loud in your home, as they are your neighbours.

There’s also smells like smokers, incense, delicious but rather potent curries and so on. Like sounds, you’ll need to avoid transferring smells through your party wall.

That’s why Loxo/Nasahi panels are as easy as plasterboard to build with, yet provide acoustic and insulation performance that’s equivalent to masonry products that are twice as thick. Brilliant!

Without the other 3 reasons in this article, insulating against sound and smell is worth investing in Loxo/Nasahi panels alone.

2. Party Wall Temperature Regulation

Let’s say one tenant loves to keep their home open on chilly winter nights, but on the other side of the common wall you have a tenant that loves it baking hot. They turn their heaters up to 11 when they can.

Plasterboard alone fails terribly here, hot or cold temperatures spread throughout each tenant’s home, causing big issues, and even bigger energy bills.

Insulating is an option but if you want remarkable temperature insulation from the get-go, with all of the other party wall benefits, Loxo/Nasahi panels are designed to ensure your tenants can regulate and enjoy their homes or offices.

3. Party Wall Fire Resistance

Party walls should always be made of non-combustible materials. Loxo/Nasahi panels have exceptional fire resistance and are even used by architects and builders in bushfire prone locations.

Loxo/Nasahi comply with all six Bushfire Attack Level Categories (BAL) with leading FRL’s for both walls and floors.

And in the event of fire, will not emit any toxic gases or vapours. Another point for Loxo/Nasahi panels.

4. Party Wall Water Resistance

Water resistance is another place where plasterboard fails. If you’ve ever left a plasterboard sheet out in the rain, you may have seen it turn to mush right in front of your eyes.

It’s not only for your tenants, but load bearing safety that you should use water-resistant materials for a party wall. Loxo/Nasahi will not bend, soften or deteriorate in wet weather.

You could probably make a surfboard out of Loxo/Nasahi panels, that’s how water resistant they are!

Like to know more about Loxo/Nasahi panels?

Loxo/Nasahi panels are perfect for residential construction, extensions, re-cladding and low rise buildings using timber or steel frames.

Applications include:

  • External walls
  • Boundary walls
  • Party (partition) walls
  • Internal partition walls
  • Floor and ceiling systems

Want To Use One Of Best Fire Rated Panels For Your Next Project?

The building industry is evolving, with architects, construction companies and home builders now wanting simpler, safer and more cost-effective materials, that are importantly environmentally-friendly.

And it makes sense, technology in almost every other area of our lives has evolved, so why have most residential and commercial construction materials and building methods stayed in the dark ages?

That’s why we’re happy to be at the forefront of one of most significant building and construction advances in Australia over the last 20 years, Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) panels with corrosion-protected steel reinforcements.

ACC panels are ground-breaking in their simplicity.

They’re lightweight, strong yet quick and easy to install with minimal clean-up. Two men can easily and safely install an astonishing 75m2 of panel per day, even more when installing party walls

Actually, you’ve probably passed hundreds, if not thousands of buildings using ACC panels without even realising it. Because until recently, most of these buildings where larger commercial and industrial. Not anymore.

Meet the Loxo/Nasahi panels, the perfect fire rated exterior cladding for residential and commercial buildings, meeting up to 90/90/90 FRL fire protection regulations.

ACC panels have been used for some 70 years around the world, and in the last 20 years here, predominantly in larger buildings like warehouses for their ease of assembly on a larger scale. That, and their sound benefits in commercial environments.

But now, the Loxo/Nasahi panels are becoming one of the most popular choices for residential and commercial building for their modern aesthetics, and especially in bushfire-prone locations with their ability to protect against fire, a reality of living in Australia.

For Australian homes and commercial buildings in remote areas where bushfires are a real threat, and even city locations where fires can break out due to machinery or electrical faults, ensuring your building has the best possible protection against fire should be high on the must-have list.

The Loxo Nasahi panel has also become hugely successful for party wall systems in duplex and townhouse developments, due to the speed of construction, cost saving compared to traditional methods and the fact that it is not affected by wet weather is making the Loxo Nashai panel the builders choice.

Loxo/Nasahi panels are renowned for their high fire resistance with an ignitable index of zero (0)!

These panels do not combust in a fire and do not emit toxic gases. They comply with the Codemark Australia and BEAL Appraisal with a 90/90/90 FRL. This makes the Loxo/Nasahi panels compliant with all 6 Bushfire Attack Level categories (BAL) for external cladding. A remarkable achievement when you compare the Loxo/Nasahi fire-rated panels to other cladding solutions.

Loxo/Nasahi panels can be used over both timber and steel frames, party walls and as flooring that absorbs sound, strong and easy to maintain and creates remarkable insulation.

Coming soon Loxo Nasahi Fencing

Environmentally friendly Panels matters too.

Providing a fire rated panel solution is great, but not at the cost of our environment. Loxo/Nasahi panels are eco-friendly and non-toxic, producing no harmful gases during manufacturing, installation or in the unfortunate event of a fire.
