You can’t beat that feeling as you drive up your new street and catch sight of your new home welcoming you after a long day. It’s all yours, with your stamp of style, standing proud in the streetscape — especially if it’s a Hebel home by Harmac Homes.
If you’re immersed in the new home journey you will have already realised that choosing a new home design is more than exploring the various options such as bedroom layouts and alfresco locations. You also need to make decisions about how your new home looks from the outside, with a focus on the façade which is the front elevation (plus side elevations if on a corner) facing the street.
Your façade style really is an extension of the theme of your home inside and out, and goes hand-in-hand with the floorplan. A popular style for new home builders is the rendered look (smooth finish applied to brick surface) due to its contemporary lines and colour options. The downside of this façade style is the price tag it often attracts, which pushes it out of reach for many budgets.
An alternative to render is the innovative Hebel PowerPanel product, providing an attractive, modern exterior that can be completed in individual finishes and colours to provide a wide range of contemporary and aspirational looks. In technical terms, Hebel is Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) manufactured from sand, cement, recycled material, lime, gypsum and aerating agents and is moulded, cut and steam pressure cured then cut to shape in various lengths and profiles. Hebel panels are steel reinforced and coated to prevent corrosion giving them strength and stability, and have been used in Europe for over 70 years and here in Australia for over 20 years. Made by CSR Building Products, it’s a solution you can depend on with road tested quality, technical expertise and warranty programs.
The list of benefits for using Hebel over bricks is long, but here’s a few that really resonate with new home buyers;
- Locally made in Australia by reputable manufacturer
- Robust strength and security for peace of mid
- Fire resistance as a non-combustible material
- Comfortable living with superior insulation
- A quiet home with reduced noise transmission
