SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF A LIGHT STEEL FRAME HOME

=

Light-steel homes are pre-engineered and arrive on site in ready-to-assemble kits. All components labelled, drilled, punched, marked and ready to bolt or screw together.

=

Every home is delivered with a detailed set of construction plans and assembly instructions and may be erected in 30% less time than traditional brick and mortar homes!

=

Light-steel-frame homes can be built on a variety of different foundation types and cladding options include conventional finishes such as brick, stucco or plaster.

=

The completed home is indistinguishable from a traditional brick and mortar house, while flexibility of design extends well beyond that of most traditional homes.

The move toward more environmentally friendly and sustainable construction methods and lower ‘energy’ costs has made light-steel-frame homes an increasingly attractive option to home buyers and most municipalities allow for the erection of such ‘green’ homes.

We’re proud of our product and craftsmanship and encourage potential home owners or builders to find out more about new-era building methods, including light-steel-frame homes, by visiting authorities including:

Green Building Council, the National Home Builders Registration Council, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and the South African Bureau of Standards.
