Hi, my name is Troy Baldwin and I've always been fascinated with the process of structure building. After the design of a building is complete, a contractor and construction crew uses the blueprints to turn a vision into a reality. I do an enormous amount of research about building construction so I'm very knowledgeable about the types of construction materials that are commonly used. In this blog, you'll read about many of the kinds of materials that are needed for construction. These include concrete, steel, gypsum board, plaster, timbers, engineered wood and composite materials. I hope that you find my blog very engaging and that it helps you to learn more about the materials that are used for the construction of buildings.
