Building requires time, work and commitment, but have you ever thought if there was a solution that would make the whole process easier? Engineers, architects and master builders are always looking for methods that can optimise the entire construction process.
Dry construction is a method that simplifies the stages, but still ensures safety, quality and durability for any construction work. It is about it that we are going to talk in this article. Widely used in North America, Asia and Europe, this alternative construction method is also gaining strength in Brazil because of its characteristics and numerous advantages that it offers throughout the construction process.
As it is a method that differs from traditional construction because of its agility, cost, economy and cleanliness, you need to know more about this subject to keep up to date with what is happening in the Brazilian civil construction market, which tends to increasingly adopt this innovative construction method.
Thinking about the growth in the use of this construction method, we thought of doing this article to bring important information about this subject. Here, you will understand what dry construction consists of, what are its main types, differences with conventional construction and, finally, what are the advantages and disadvantages that this method provides. If you want to know all this, it is simple: just read this article until the end. Let's go?
What is dry construction?
Before anything else, let's start with the basic question on the subject that you need to know the answer to in order to continue delving into the topic: what is dry construction?
Dry construction is nothing more than a construction process that dispenses the use of water in all stages, avoiding mixtures and the use of mortar. But how is the process carried out, then? Basically, the structures are manufactured in industries and are only assembled and installed at the construction sites.
Despite so many benefits and being an innovative method, dry construction has not yet arrived for good in Brazil. Here, the most used method is still, without a doubt, the conventional masonry construction. This is due to some factors, such as resistance in using something new, little diversity of suppliers and less availability in the market. But, it is good that you are already familiarizing yourself with this method, because sooner or later, it will come to stay in the Brazilian market. Its benefits are many and this must be the reason why it is already widely used in other regions.
