Sand is an essential material used in building your home. Without sand, there can be no concrete, concrete blocks or mortar.
River sand is the most commonly used sand for home building. This type of sand can be found in river banks and river beds. Manufactured sand is another type of sand gaining popularity for home construction. When compared to river sand, manufactured sand offers greater durability, has fewer impurities, and is better for the environment.
Due to the importance of sand in the construction process, ensure that your constructor inspects the sand delivered to the site - both for quantity and quality. A drop in either can have a negative impact on the construction.
