The gains in happiness and quality of life for those who choose to build a house on the beach are countless, however, it is necessary to take some care as to the design and choice of materials, to make better use of space, to increase the useful life of the building and avoid future problems.
TIPS FOR WHOM YOU WILL BUILD HOME ON THE BEACH
# 1. The choice of terrain
Lands near the beach can be located in areas of environmental preservation (APAs) – where buildings are restricted, and must be submitted to several environmental impact studies, which significantly increases costs – or in permanent preservation areas (APAs) – where buildings are prohibited.
Many “beach” grounds differ in scripture, so attention to documentation should be doubled. Do not close deals before checking all records and deeds in the municipality’s Real Estate Registry Office.
After verifying the documentation and feasibility, it is important to observe general aspects of the terrain, such as: composition and soil type; footage and solar position; slopes and slopes; history of floods etc.
# 2. Floors, walls and roofs
For interior areas, bet on porcelain tiles with protection against stains and scratches, or woods treated against moisture and sea air. In outdoor areas, stones and technology have excellent resistance to scratches and impacts, so they are ideal for places with a lot of movement.
For exterior walls, prefer specific paints, with elastomeric base and rubberized finish, which are more resistant, washable and durable. Inner walls need special attention against mold and moisture.
The tiles can be ceramic, concrete, fiber cement (without asbestos), but the ideal is that they receive treatment against the actions of the sea and the sand. A layer of acrylic lacquer helps to increase the useful life of the tiles and to keep them clean for longer. For those who want a more sustainable home, expanded clay roof and green roof guarantee thermal comfort with low environmental impact.
# 3. Openings and frames
As elegant and beautiful as the wooden frames, the treatment given to them needs to be very thorough and require regular maintenance. The hinges and handles should be of stainless steel.
Anodized or electrostatically painted aluminum and PVC are well resistant to corrosion, easy to clean and maintain, and ensure excellent sealing.
# 4. Structure
We know that iron is the metal that most suffers corrosion by the sea, so it is fundamental to properly cover and protect all structure of the work. In the same way, other metallic structures, such as steel, deserve special attention. Check the possibility of changing the structure of iron and common steel by skid steels or wood.
# 5. Other elements
Opt for vinyl or fiberglass, which are easier to install and simpler to maintain. Take care of the use of sunscreens, which can saturate the filter and damage the motor.
With or without swimming pool at home, having an outside shower facilitates in the day to day, avoiding that people enter with sand of the beach or salt of the sea water at home.
Deposit for surfboards, kayaks and other equipment
Those who practice sports like surfing and canoeing know how important it is to keep the equipment well maintained and protected. For these people, building an external warehouse is ideal for keeping planks and equipment clean and safe without having to take them indoors.
