Home building materials list and material selections process
It is not easy to calculate the home building material cost per square foot because of variation of cost in materials. For a layman example see the appliance, you can find a simple fridge in $800 but the new design Sub zero fridge start from $15,000 so you can imagine the price difference only in one item.
We divide the material into two categories and also provide you home building materials list.
1. Rough in Material
2. Finishing Material
Rough in Material are the materials use in the footings, foundation, concrete for floors, lumber, insulation, dry walls, electrical rough in, plumbing rough in and HVAC/ heating system or duck work. The price of these materials has least variation and the quality is almost standard. So for builder there is a limited choice and most of the time builder select and buy it self all these materials and finish these work according to city requirements and bylaws. Custom also have least concern about these rough ins because these material are usually behind the walls. On the other hand builder also meet the building codes, third party inspection and warranty of any of the latent defect. So customer don’t need to select these material by any way.
Finishing materials are the materials where most of the customers concern a lot. usually it is Kitchen, bathrooms, floor, fireplaces, doors and windows, trims and moldings, lighting, elevators, bricks, stone and stucco, shingle colour, interlocking, garage door, paints and landscaping. Price also vary a lot in the selection of these materials. Suppose MDF kitchen start from $70 per linear feet and goes to $400 per linear feet for good quality wooden kitchen. LED pot lights start from $5 and goes to $60, but these things really makes the impact.
Mayfair homes always give the chance to our customers to select the material, appliances and finishing according to their will and wish list.
