ANYTHING BUT STANDARD: BRICK INFILLS
8th November 2018
Externally and structurally Nostra Homes has always gone above and beyond to ensure the very important structural component of your new home will stand the test of time. From thicker slabs for stronger foundations, more timber in our frames for increased stability, brick infills above all windows and garage for greater aesthetics plus a selection of designer facades to choose from your new home will stay and look the part before you even walk in.
Often Brick infills are what other builders call upgrades, and commonly your standard home will only include cement infills to your windows and garage. This can look less premium and you can end up spending thousands should you choose to upgrade to brick during your tender stage. That’s why at Nostra, your home comes with brick infills as standard to ground floor windows and to the lintel above your garage. Lintels are used to bear the load of building material above door and window openings, these are often made from solid wood or steel dependent on the window opening.
The use of brick infills is not only a structurally sound option, but aesthetically pleasing as well. The continuation of brickwork from wall to window creates a seamless display of materials, and aids in street appeal. At Nostra, we have partnered with Austral Bricks to deliver uncompromised product. Austral Bricks has a proud history of brick making spanning over 100 years! The experience of over one hundred years of brickmaking brings with it a unique ability to build a dedicated team of people committed to excellence in brick production, research and development ready for the many challenges of the next 100 years.
We understand that your home is one of life’s biggest decisions, in every aspect, including style of course. When building a home, you are looking for unique solutions that suit your lifestyle, so naturally, the materials you decide to use are an important and enduring choice. Nostra Homes believes in quality, in all aspects of our process and it starts with our superior structural components, ensuring a home that will stand the test of time.
