Raising the Quality of New Build Homes

Innovative housebuilders focus on building better quality homes

While there is plenty to love about new builds, research shows that many homeowners remain disappointed with the quality of their home. At British Gypsum, we understand the opportunities and challenges that come with owning a new build, and we’re working closely with housebuilders to help them specify products that raise the standard of their homes. 

You’ll be pleased to know that your housebuilder has joined us on this journey, and has been awarded our “Building Better Homes” quality mark for specifying solutions that make their houses great quality homes.

Here’s just some of the solutions your housebuilder has installed in your home in order to raise the standard of your home.

Strong and durable walls

32% of homeowners identify flimsy walls as a problem with new builds*

A well-built home with solid and durable walls lasts longer and resists the strain of daily life. Whether it’s doors hitting walls or hanging heavy pictures, your new home is built to withstand everyday knocks and scrapes.  It also makes DIY a doddle, allowing you to fix heavy items wherever you like. A house fitted with Gyproc Habito plasterboard lets you customise your home without the usual limits.

Silent Floor & Silent Walls

27% of homeowners experience too much noise travelling between rooms*

From kids playing to noisy TV’s, everyday activities produce noise. From time to time we all want to be able to switch from noise to silence without compromising on our activities. Acoustic solutions installed your home provide up to double the Building Regulation standards. This means you and your family can enjoy your home the way you want it.

Interactive Magnetic Walls

15% of homeowners are put off doing simple DIY tasks such as hanging pictures*

DIY to your heart’s content without worrying about damage to walls. With ThistlePro Magnetic Plaster, you can display everything from family photos to the kids’ artwork without using Blu Tack or nails. This lets you personalise your rooms in no time, and change your mind over and over again.
