working with steel requires generating a lot of heat. The running joke with my children is that I will, occasionally and accidentally, set thing on fire, In fact, I have set my neighbors yard on fire twice, but it’s good for public relations!
My wife and I contemplated moving to a place where it might be safer to practice my hobby. However the Austin housing market is so expensive, we decided it made more sense to extend the garage, Again given my tendency to (accidently) start fires, traditional wood frame structures were not and option. We explored metal structures, but that did not blend well with the original structure of the house , After doing some research, and discussing with a half dozen contractors we came across Scotbuild US, they patiently educated us on a lightweight,extremely durable and fireproof product-Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC). I was skeptical at first but when i learned about how this was the preferred building product for years in Europe, we decided to go with it.
Scotbuild US replaced the brick on the outside of our garage and used the block to extend the garage. The first thing we noticed wash our electric bill dropped 25%. The AAC provided far better insulation than traditional building materials. In february 2021, a major winter storm passed through Texas, We lost electricity for 5 days and the water pipes in the house froze. I had several cases of bottled water stored in the garage, none of which froze during the subfreezing weather, The AAC prevented the garage from freezing while the water inside the house froze. keep in mind the garage has 2 big doors and is located on the North side of the structure! I am so impressed by the performance of the AAC, that if I ever build a new house , I will use it again. In sum,
I strongly recommend AAC.
– In April 2020, we went to liberty Hill, Taxes and saw the warehouse Scotbuild US was building there with Autoclave material. We were excited to see the superb quality achieved using the AAC and construction methods.
We have some land in Dumas, North Texas, where we plan for Scotbuild US to build use multiple single family homes using the Autoclave Concrete blocks.we believe it will be the ideal material for that region because the Autoclave material will be a great insulation for the extreme variations in temperature (too ho in the summer and too cold in the winter). Scotbuild US told us that the construction will take less time than with conventional construction materials. We are very confident that we have the right company, ScotBuild US. to start our project and with Scotbuild US personally supervising the construction site. we have seen Scotbuild’s craftsmanship. quality of work, and attention to detail that exceeds any of those of other contractors we worked in the past.
We looking forward to this next project with ScotBuild. We have a great deal of confidence and a comforting piece of mind in working with Ryan on the lead of the project.”
