Frequently asked questions
What is an element house? How does it differ from a framework house?
What is the price of a square metre of a framework house and what’s included?
We build houses based on individual designs. Our experience tells that houses of equal square area may significantly vary in price, depending on wall area, flooring and variety of materials used. The price of a conventional framework house starts from 1 500 Litas per one square metre. The price includes outside finish, full heat insulation, partial interior finish, roof, windows, and doors. Foundation, electrical and plumbing installation, interior finish completion, furniture, etc are not included.
What is the lifetime of a framework house?
If a house has been built in compliance with all the rules for construction of a framework house, such house will serve for 100 and more years. Weatherboards might need replacement after 50 years, while the main structures of the house should remain without changes.
How do you maintain a framework house?
Firstly, a house should be built by experts following the technologies developed through centuries. A completed house does not require any special maintenance. Just renew paint of the weatherboards every few years. Modern high-grade paints last for 10 to 15 years.
How long does it take to build a framework house?
Prefabrication of elements for an average size house of 150 sq metres takes 4 weeks. Onsite building takes another 10-12 weeks, thereafter a house with a partial interior finish is ready.
What is thermal resistance of a framework house?
Thermal insulation is also used in structural part of a framework house. Taking into account value for money, thermal resistance ratio of outside walls of our houses is 4-5, and that of the roof 6-7.
