Here’s your monthly dose of price monitoring on basic construction materials!
We’ve included the following building and construction supplies are included in this month’s Price Watch:
Cement is a critical material used in buildings, residential structures, bridges, harbors, runways, and roads. It endures a chemical process known as “setting” to join cement with other materials.
It’s critical to use cement with good workability and compressive strength to make structures last longer.
Among general-purpose cements, Holcim Excel is the most widely used for its premium quality, designed for a wide range of construction projects from structural to decorative. Holcim Excel mixes and places easily with early strength, cutting building time in half. Because of its improved usability, it will save you time and money on repairs.
2. Fine Aggregate
Fine aggregate is an essential component of concrete made up of natural sand or crushed stone. The quality and fine aggregate density heavily influence the hardened properties of concrete.
Roads and driveways are the most common applications for the material when gravel is purchased in bulk.
4. Concrete Nails
Concrete nails are a must-have for construction workers and DIY enthusiasts alike. Concrete nails allow wood to masonry connections. These nails are harder than other kinds of nails.
5. Coco Lumber
Coconut lumber is used in large quantities as scaffolding and form lumber in the construction of tall buildings.
Plywood is a popular construction material due to its numerous beneficial properties. Formwork or a mould for wet concrete are some of its most common uses, as are the creation of light partitions or external walls, as well as furniture such as cupboards, kitchen cabinets, and office tables.
7. Steel Bar
To help and strengthen concrete, reinforcement bars are steel rods used as tension in reinforced masonry structures and in reinforced concrete.
PVC pipes are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a plastic-vinyl compound. As an alternative to more expensive copper piping, these popular pipe types are widely used in the plumbing industry. Electrical conduits are also made of PVC.
9. Light Bulbs
For a wide range of fixtures with different bases and considerations, lamp light bulbs, which are commonly referred to as light bulbs in the industry, come in numerous sizes, shapes, and temperatures (colors).
These are high-performance, polymer-modified mortars formulated for internal and external applications. They are ready-mixed and only need the addition of water in their applications. These mortars have a shelf life of 1 year of manufacture when stored properly.
