Behind every great facade is Enviroseal!

The Block homes came alive last week with the reveal of the front garden and facades. The homes were wrapped with Enviroseal wall wrap, which acts as a protective second skin behind external wall cladding and bricks. Enviroseal reduces the risk of condensation, keeping the home healthy and protected for years to come. Click here to learn more about Enviroseal wall wrap



The sweetest sounds!

While we love the sound of children playing, it can be an interruption when you are trying to work from home! Sarah & George on The Block created a winning child's bedroom, study, and powder room on The Block. They insulated with R2.5 Bradford SoundScreen Acoustic batts in the internal walls as well as the mid floors to help reduce the sound transmission between the rooms to create a more comfortable and harmonious family home.

What does Luxury look like?

Harry & Tash created a sense of grandeur in their living and dining room on The Block last week. Open plan, choice of furniture placement and the architectural void maximised the luxury feel of the home.

An instrumental design element also included was the generous fireplace. Not only does the fireplace look amazing, but with the added Bradford Gold High Performance wall insulation in the home, it will help keep the heat generated by the fireplace in the home for longer so you will rely less on heating costs throughout winter.

Featuring gorgeous dotty wallpaper, bespoke bunk bed, and hanging chair, their bedroom was complemented by an equally stunning bathroom that highlighted a timber vanity, brass edging, and terrazzo look tiles.

Getting the best out of metal roofs

Anticon roof insulation was chosen so that the new owners can get the very best out of their new colorbond metal roof. It can minimise condensation from forming as well as improve the acoustic and the thermal performance of the roof enhancing the energy efficiency and comfort rel="noopener noreferrer" of the home.

Acoustics in the Ensuite



The Blockheads have used SoundScreen inside the walls of their ensuites to help keep “those noises” from transferring to other rooms.

SoundScreen is a high density acoustic insulation that’s specially engineered for internal walls in new homes. Including SoundScreen around noise affected rooms will effectively reduce loud noises to a whisper and ensure harmonious living. Whether the internal wall is separating a toilet from a bedroom, living area from a study or laundry from a lounge room, the internal walls need to function at an acceptable acoustic rel="noopener noreferrer" level to ensure noise is kept rel="noopener noreferrer" in its place.
