The insulation inducing, fire and termite resistant, lightweight bio-composite material that is used for construction (in our case, for building houses!).
Created by simply combining water, hemp aggregate and a lime-based binder it produces a building product with excellent thermal insulating and acoustic properties. Hempcrete is easier to work with than traditional lime mixes and acts as an insulator and moisture regulator. Hempcrete is a truly natural product that provides great benefits to it’s inhabitants, removing the need to run air conditioners and heaters to keep a comfortable home. Regular insulation requires constant energy input – Hempcrete doesn’t.
Hempcrete has been used for thousands of years, dating back to France in the early 1900’s – this produce has stood the test of time and performed well. Although more expensive initially, Hempcrete’s benefits are ongoing and will save you money over time.
At Modern Rustic, we strive to push the boundaries WITH our clients by stepping outside the box and finding new and exciting products to work with, if you would like more information on Hempcrete and how we can use it on your next project, give us a call or shoot us an email. We are keen to work with people wanting to do things a little differently!
