Do you offer UPVC windows as well? What are the pros and cons say vs the aluminium offering ? Thanks in advance.

Anyone done a blow door test in Melbourne? Curious to know the results and maybe even get a recommendation if possible. TIA

Would you recommend then to use Hebel Power Panels+ for the internals too instead of going with MgO boards? Just wondering what the benefits are with the MgO boards vs…

I see. Thanks again alexp79.
Would you happen to know if most Hebel builds (for example: volume builders) use powerpanels instead of blocks? And…

Thanks heaps for that. MgO sounds really interesting. From the Habitech website, they use it as a cladding. They don’t come in blocks like Hebel does it? So it needs…

Thanks for that. The costings do help. But at this stage I’m more interested in ensuring that the right foundation is designed. Once that has been done, then I’d like…
