1st Quick Build
The construction of a frame house takes only 3-4 months. Adding the finishing work, the investor has a finished house after half a year. This is an alternative to standard masonry construction, where the construction of a house extends even several years.
2nd Healthy, breathable homes
Do not confuse the term "breathable" with "leaky". The main advantage of walls built with the PREMIUM system is that they are diffusion-open. Water vapor is carried away to the outside of the building through successive layers of the wall. As a result, the wall structure is permanently protected from moisture and mold. Few people realize that it is a serious mistake to insulate walls with Styrofoam. This is one of the cheapest ways, but it gives the effect of a so-called "foil mesh" and promotes the growth of microorganisms and mold in the wall partitions.
3rd Ecological
The houses built by our company can confidently be called ecological. STEICO products are made from renewable raw materials. Supporters of ecology and defenders of our planet can with a clear conscience decide on this type of construction to live in harmony with nature.
4th Cheap to Maintain
When building high-energy houses, we try to reduce heat loss as much as possible. We install photovoltaics and electric floor heating. Such a solution reduces operating costs to a minimum. This has already been proven in the buildings we have built. It has been documented that the annual cost of maintaining a house ( about 140 m²) closes in the amount of 1700 PLN.
1st They heat up quickly and lose heat.
The use of STEICO insulation materials has earned our homes a reputation for high energy efficiency. During cold weather, a thick layer of insulation ensures that heat loss is kept to a minimum. In summer, on the other hand, thanks to the phenomenon of phase shift, they provide ideal protection from the heat. The wall at the time of greatest insolation is a barrier against the penetration of heat into the room, and gives up heat when the temperature outside is much lower.
2nd "Leaky houses"
We use high-quality materials when insulating our homes. STEICOprotect exterior facade panel also has windproofing properties. The tongue and groove profile ensures the tightness of the joint. On the inside, meanwhile, we use an active vapor barrier. During the installation of window frames, warm window sills are also installed, which, combined with special tapes, help reduce thermal bridges to a minimum. And a well-insulated house also has good protection against sounds coming from outside.
3rd Generation Homes
Today, high-quality, certified materials are used for the construction of a frame house. They are properly impregnated and protected from the elements. We can confidently say that this is a house for generations. We draw on the experience of Canadians and builders from the United States, where in their countries some frame houses are used for up to 100 years.
4th Flammable
Tests on various qualities of insulation have proven that STEICO materials, despite being wood-based, do not burn with live fire. In the attached video, you can see that it takes much longer for the board to fail in a fire test than other materials.
5th Unstable
Many people have the misconception that timber-frame houses will be destroyed by the first good windstorm that comes along. The skeleton of the house is assembled using a special fastening system. The foundations are attached to the foundation with special anchors. The walls are rigidly connected to each other without the possibility of any movement. In losing to the elements of wind, the building has comparable strength to that of masonry.
Common Construction a
Modern Technology
Every year we spend hundreds of zlotys on coal, diesel or gas. We spend them only to have all the accumulated heat escape in the end anyway, and with it our money. The company Passive Houses AS offers the construction of passive and energy-efficient houses, which naturally help to level the costs associated with heating the house.
Timber frame houses are built much faster than those in traditional technology. A shell building is built in just a few months and in timber frame technology there is no need for seasoning, so it can be built even in winter. And the advantage of this type of construction is that we really only heat the air, because the entire structure is made of insulating materials.
The benefits of building houses with this technology are many. From simply saving money to helping our planet.
