Building a home in different climates

Planning to build a home? Have you considered the climate in your area? If not, please do! Because it is important to factor in the climatic conditions to ensure safe and stable construction. Across our country, we have different climate zone, each with its own set of climate-specific demands. So you can't plan your construction according to a hot climate in a chilly, wintery zone.

In hot and dry regions :

- Sunlight heats up the house. Therefore, painting the roof, and plastering with heat-reflective paint can help you lower heat absorption

- The main door should face the north-south direction. To avoid excess sunlight, avoid building doors and windows facing west

- Hollow concrete blocks provide better insulation, which helps regulate the temperature inside the home

- Remember to plan the ventilation and cross ventilation systems carefully

In high rainfall regions :

- Build lintel beams over doors and windows

- Design a sloping roof so that water washes away easily

- Remember to waterproof your home's structure

In cold regions :

- Build the doors and windows in the north and west to let warm sunlight into your home

- Use good insulating material while constructing windows, doors and flooring

These were a few tips on building a home in different climatic conditions.
