Building technology: A vital home purchase consideration

A growing concern among many would-be home owners in Canada is the durability of their prospective abodes against property damage brought about by the steadily growing number of extreme weather occurrences.

“While safety is the main concern, it is also important to think about the costs associated with destruction and loss,” housing technology firm NUDURA recently stated in reference to severe wind, flooding, and fires.

One option that can make long-term living more cost-effective is going for what the company calls “disaster-resilient homes”. In NUDURA’s case, it allows Canadians to enjoy the benefits of its Insulated Concrete Forms: modules composed of two Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) panels connected with a hinged folding web, which are then stacked, reinforced, and filled with concrete.

The technology makes homes designed with NUDURA components far more durable than their regular counterparts, making them attractive investments in the long run.

“NUDURA ICFs can endure winds of up to 402 kph (250 mph) and the non-toxic fire retardant expanded polystyrene foam provides a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours, ensuring that [the structures] are safe and secure in almost any situation,” NUDURA technical services manager Keven Rector said.
