Does the Trex house need foundations?

Trex houses are laid on foundations. However, it is not necessary to build the foundation on the entire surface of the building. You can just build a basic wreath with basic footprints. Trex houses can also be installed on the so-called screws, pilots. They are drilled into the ground under a certain moment. In this case, it would be good to determine the groundwater level, soil quality, which would be advisable to get the geotechnical elaborate.

How is the Trex house set up?

The Trex house comes to your location in modules that are already arranged for living according to your wishes and needs and settle in just a few days, depending on the size and model of the Trex house.

With what kind of materials is the Trex house built?

When choosing materials for building the Trex house we have carefully considered and decided on those materials that achieve the highest security and the lowest possible cost of living. That is why Trex houses are energy efficient and fall into class “B” of flammability (does not contribute to cleavage).

What is the resistance of the Trex home to fire?

Each material has its own class of negligence and its own properties, so the Trex House is classified as class B of flammability, which means that the materials from which it is constructed do not contribute to the spread of fire.

What is a ventilating facade?

The ventilating facade is a facade that contains a ventilated space with substructure insulation and allows the Trex house to “breath”.

It is a metal composite panel that comes in a variety of colors. Resistant to weather conditions and is characterized by high quality acoustic, thermal and fire protection values.

What are the additional costs when buying a Trex house?

Additional costs are the costs of transportation, project documentation and assembly. Of course, you have to count the cost of land purchase if you do not have it, building a foundation for the house, electricity, water and drainage, obtaining a building permit…

What is the Trex house made of?

The biggest part of the Trex house is a steel structure with heat insulation made of cellulose coated with OSB panels. The exterior of the structure comes with 40 mm thick stone wool. There is then an air space of 30 mm in the substructure of the facade until finally comes a final 4 mm thick panel of Albond facade.

What is the thermal insulation of the Trex House?

The thermal insulation we use is made of old paper, with the addition of mineral preservatives and fire protection, which also prevents the occurrence of insects. Borax is not used and insulation is not harmful to skin and respiratory tract.

The advantages of such cellulose isolation are many. It proved to be a great protection against the cold winter and the heat in the summer. Namely, it even accumulates more than 2.5 times the heat of classical insulation. Moreover, the house is diffusely open and “breathes”, preventing the accumulation of moisture and fungi, which is a common problem with classical constructions.

Cellulose insulation creates a healthy microclimate of the inner space, which is extremely important for the quality of life. When installing cellulose insulation tightly to the substrate, the loss of energy and the emergence of thermal bridges are reduced to a minimum.

In the walls of  the Trex house is a layer of 12 cm of cellulose + 4 cm of stone wool, the floor is insulated with 12 cm of cellulose and the roof with 20 cm of cellulose.

Can the Trex house be upgraded?

Yes of course. The Trex house is growing in line with your needs, which is a great advantage of modular construction along with the speed of assembly.

Do I have any warranty on my Trex house?

Yes of course. The warranty for structural elements is 30 years. If you are buying a Trex house equipped with appliances, we give this a five-year warranty on the Gorenje supplier’s devices, floor heating and joinery.
