Constructing the Perfect Braai Room


Constructing the Perfect Braai Room

Winter is over, and the perfect weather for a braai is approaching. Now might be a wonderful time to think about installing a braai area to your house if you’re thinking about starting your next DIY project. One of the most well-liked pastimes in South Africa is unquestionably braaing. Many of us enjoy it as a hobby, but it’s also a significant aspect of our nation’s rich heritage.

Fire pits are also a great addition to the home and come in a variety of forms, sizes and materials, and they combine the advantages and cosiness of a fireplace with the adaptability of a braai. Usually, fire pits are placed as focal places where friends and family can gather in comfort. Whichever one of these DIY projects you choose, it is important to select the very best materials. Here are a few materials that we suggest exploring when constructing the perfect braai room or fire pit.

A braai or fire pit is the ideal spot for outdoor entertaining, providing a great area for your guests to relax in your garden. Your braai area or fire pit will benefit greatly from having a hardwood deck because it is not only attractive but also sturdy. Based on its lifetime and durability, Balau and Garapa wood are the finest options because of its strength and functionality. The best thing about both hardwoods is that their functionality matches their pleasing visual appearance. Check out both our 19×90 Balau decking and 19×90 Garapa decking that we, at Online Building, have on offer.

Magnaboard is another great option to look at when starting your DIY project, and is similar to traditional drywall or cement board but is much stronger, fireproof and has better resistance to moisture, mould and weather, making it the perfect material to use when building a braai or fire pit. The board is perfect for ceilings, dry walling, fire pits, fire doors, and so much more because it has excellent acoustic, thermal, strength and fire retardant properties.

Fibre cement can also be a fantastic option to choose when building your braai room. Fibre cement board is an affordable, lightweight material that can be used for all interior and exterior building applications because it is unaffected by moisture, is resistant to rotting and corrosion, is unaffected by UV light and can be painted or coated in an almost infinite number of combinations of colours and textures for both interior and exterior uses. When compared to other building materials, fibre cement board is virtually maintenance-free, incredibly weather-resistant, non-combustible and is made with good thermal properties, making it the perfect material for building a braai room.

It is important to choose the correct materials that are specific to your DIY projects. At Online Building, we offer the solutions to meet all of your DIY construction needs. While we do stock everything you’ll need to make your project a success, it’s crucial to keep in mind that we do not cut or fit to your requirements.
