Materials That Won't Break The Bank

That being said, choosing the materials that give you the best value for your money is essential.  For best quality ask one of the knowledgeable concrete contractors Denver offers for their input regarding the use of cement and it’s cost.


Perhaps one of the most versatile material, wood perfectly fits any type of construction, unless it is more than six stories tall. Not only wood is widely available in most areas, recycled wood from old buildings is increasingly more popular. The savings continue well after the house has been built, because wood is an extremely insulating material. This means less energy is used to heat or cool the building.

Prefabricated panels

Another fantastic opportunity to build a durable building while keeping the costs down. These panels are available in a wide variety of types, with many modular additions to the standard model. A tremendous advantage is the ease and speed of assembly.

Mud bricks

For a long time considered a material for the poor masses, mud bricks have re-emerged as an environmentally-conscious, cost-effective material. They are extremely cheap to produce, aesthetically pleasing and deliver great insulation. The only disadvantage is that the structures made out of them need to be sheltered from direct rain and moisture, whilst requiring constant maintenance. Mud brick buildings are not suitable for humid climates.
