The successful functionality of any building greatly depends upon the choice of materials that will be used. There are a wide variety of materials used within the construction process and making their choice carefully is of high priority. You can witness some of the top-notch materials in this year’s Big 5 2022 exhibition.
The materials that are picked and used tends to define the overall durability, character and endurance of the building. The architectural finishing products are part of the building construction materials that meet vital requirements. These products are expansion joints, wall claddings and panels, etc.
Architectural finishing products are mainly utilised in the final part of the construction process that creates the final surface of any element. The use of high-quality finishing products should be a priority if you want to maintain durability as well as visual appeal.
In this guide, we list a few key elements that are needed to be considered when it comes to choosing these finishing products. Continue to read till the end to find out all about them.
The cost of the products and the overall budget
Of course you have a budget and you need to keep that in check when selecting architectural finishing products. The prices for each of the products you would need vary extensively and it is essential to choose products that are the best price without any compromise with its quality.
Now it is important to keep in mind that it is not viable to go with products that are cheap as there is a high chance that they are not up to the mark. While it may seem like a good deal, you have to pay a big price later in maintenance, repair or even worse replacement.
Therefore be careful when making the decision of choosing architectural finishing products such as an entrance matting system, wall protection panels and more. Stick to your budget but not at the cost of the quality of products.
The durability offered by the products
Some products are proven to serve longer and have capability of resistance against moisture, corrosion and other environmental conditions. This is why when choosing the finishing products for building it is important to consider the durability of these products.
We recommend consulting the professionals when choosing architectural finishing products that can expertly respond to climatic and surrounding conditions. The products should be such that they are able to adapt to the weather and climatic conditions.
Some of the products tend to deteriorate rapidly especially in a humid setting. Consumers need to consider the durability and strength of the products that are required for the specific facility or conditions to be used.
Preference for sustainable products
The global construction community has evolved drastically and with that the demand for choosing products and materials that can reduce the carbon footprint has increased. Hence, the end-users are pretty conscious about the choice made for the making of buildings or any other construction structure.
That is why it is important to consider that the architectural finishing products chosen are sustainable and eco-friendly in nature. The best products are those that can be recycled or reused after they have completed their service period.
So, ensure to make conscious choices in order to reduce carbon footprint and successfully accomplish the construction project.
Availability of the products
It is a viable choice to go with products that are available easily. The availability of architectural finishing products needs to be considered as they determine the time and cost of their installation.
Some of the products might be available locally and it is a wiser decision to go with. Since if the products are not locally sourced then the transportation cost might be hefty depending on from where the products will be supplied.
Locally available products can also save time and work can be completed more smoothly.
Level of maintenance needed
The architectural finishing products used in a building construction project are the final products installed. They are meant to protect the surface elements of the structure. Just like any other materials they also require maintenance work.
However the right finishing products are those that are effortless and need only minimum to no maintenance at all. Compared to standard or cheap quality products, the high-quality products need less maintenance which not only saves time and effort but also cuts down the overall cost.
This is why maintenance should be a vital selection basis when choosing for the architectural finishing products. If you are interested to discover such products then make sure to visit the Big 5 2022 exhibit this year.
The overall performance delivered
Go for the products that have the structural potential to bear and sustain the building loads. As the architectural finishing products are the final aspect of any construction work, they are needed to be robust and give long-lasting performance.
For example, if you are going with wall protection panels then it is to be considered that they are able to resist any impact, scratch, dents or damages throughout their service. Similarly, other products that are used need to offer optimised performance overall.
Adding aesthetic appeal to the project
Last but not the least, the architectural finishing products that you are choosing should also add aesthetic appeal to the areas where they are used. The best products are able to fit into the specific interior design and enhance the overall appearance of the setting.
So, what are you waiting for? Make sure to keep these factors in mind to choose the right finishing products for your project. To discover a wide range of architectural finishing products, make sure to visit the Big 5 2022 Exhibition starting from 5-8 December 2022 at Dubai World Trade Centre.
