HEMPCRETE has no equal as a natural building product, sequestering carbon dioxide for the life of the building.  Created by simply combining water, hemp aggregate and a lime-based binder it produces a building product with excellent thermal insulating and acoustic properties. The insulation forms the entire wall with the load bearing timber frame fully encased. Hempcrete is not just an insulator - it buffers temperature and humidity, prevents damp and mould growth, making the building a comfortable healthy environment.

"IT IS A BIT DEARER, BUT A LOT BETTER!"

Hempcrete buildings last as long as a castle and save energy for ever.

It is fire and termite resistant, lightweight and forms a hard wall surface yet is vapour permeable to help reduce humidity and prevent condensation - a truly natural product.

People that live in hempcrete houses do not need to run airconditioners or heaters all day to keep a comfortable home.  Regular insulation requires constant energy input - hempcrete doesn't.  The way energy costs are rising, that's a massive yearly cost saving through power conservation.  At the same time, less energy use, less pollution AND carbon sequestration by hempcrete - your hempcrete project will be carbon negative.
