Do you have questions about CONTAINER constructions?
In this article, we will answer the most frequently asked questions for you!
IS IT HOT?
The container heats only when it is in the sun, after all metal is an excellent heat conductor. Internally, a thermo-acoustic treatment is carried out with a glass wool blanket between the bodywork and the dry wall. Externally, a “Ciaflex” layer is applied to the entire container, it is a preparation base that helps thermal problems as it does not absorb heat, at the same time providing sealing, painting, waterproof and protecting against rain strikes.
The cost of a container construction is an average of $ 171 to $ 226 per m², depending on the finish selected. This represents savings of up to 30% compared to the traditional structure.
For example, $ 207 per square meter was spent, including “Casa do Vale” (see photo), porcelain tiles in the open area, heated pool and 3.50 m high walls. (Written prices are valid for BRAZIL)
