Some types of materials that until recently were used only for industrial construction, are now applied in dwellings with good results.

The flexible pavements had defined its use for construction of buildings for industrial purposes. On all the ships were the buildings that had this type of flooring. But over time this view has changed, and are increasingly used for the construction of flats and houses, otherwise appreciate its benefits.

What are flexible pavements?

Flexible pavements are composed of several layers, where the main feature is that the pavement structure can flexar. This move allows you to adapt to the loads acting on it. These characteristics are what they always have a building material choice for the completion of industrial buildings, parking, transit points constant. Basically the layers composing a flexible pavement are three: the surface layer, or termination that is what gives the appearance the floor. The second layer is the base, which normally consists of aggregates, and a third layer called sub-base, which in many cases may not be necessary.


Types of resilient flooring

Among the resilient flooring commonly used in housing construction can count the cork, rubber, linoleum and vinyl. The exterior architecture of the house too often placed cobblestone resilient floor tiles. They are ceramic pieces that simulate the ancient cobblestone streets used for, and which are placed on a bed of sand that is the support that allows the flexibility of the pavement. The cork flooring can add warmth to a room, in addition to the benefits presented as acoustic insulation. If you make a wax finish work, you get a shiny surface also allows the scope pavement durability. In these materials, moisture is the main enemy, so you constantly have to dry to avoid problems.

The flexible rubber floor

Rubber is a very interesting material for the construction of flats. Has thermal and acoustic insulating capacity, besides being a material which requires virtually no maintenance. It is also slip resistant.All these features have made ​​a material widely used in schools, public buildings, office buildings with heavy traffic. The housing can be used in bathrooms and kitchens, since they are not affected by water, and even play areas for children, because it can greatly minimize the noise that they can cause.

Economic benefits of resilient flooring

The price-duration having a resilient flooring make it very economical. And the interesting thing is that this economy will not reduce quality, if we speak from the standpoint of aesthetics. There is great variety of textures and colors in materials that can be used, which allow different ways to combine them, thus making interesting designs that contribute to the interior of the premises. All these features make the resilient flooring is no longer considered only as an industrial solution, but is welcomed into the world of housing.
