All construction projects have some environmental impact and it is always good to choose materials and working methods that affect the environment as little as possible. With little environmental impact during construction, you can build a storage room, holiday home or carport with a clear conscience. The environmental impact with ground screws is much lower than using concrete. This is due to a high emission of carbon dioxide during the production of cement.
Always keep the environment in mind when building
Environmental friendliness is a hot topic today and there are several ways you can build in an environmentally friendly way. By using materials that can be reused and last a long time, you are also acting positively for the environment. We are proud of our ground screws, which have little environmental impact on construction projects compared to many other anchoring methods. The carbon dioxide emissions during production are far lower in comparison with the production of concrete products.
In addition, the ground screws are very durable and by constructing buildings that last a long time, you also save the environment. We provide at least a 25-year guarantee on all our ground screws. You also have the opportunity to both reuse and recycle them when you no longer need something you have previously built.
The concrete industry accounts for a large part of the carbon dioxide emissions in the world. Concrete is necessary in the construction of, for example, multi-storey buildings and industrial buildings due to their size. However, many people use concrete unnecessarily when it comes to anchoring smaller projects such as holiday homes, garden rooms, balconies and fences. Concrete is neither the most environmentally friendly nor the most cost-effective alternative for such projects.
Choose a ground screw for less environmental impact during construction
Garden rooms are a very popular ancillary building today which can either sit on a cast concrete slab or anchoring points such as ground screws or concrete supports. However, you should know that a cast concrete slab contributes to 1,000% more carbon dioxide emissions than our ground screws do. There is no doubt that this is a very high figure.
When it comes to the concrete support, a well-used product in construction projects, it emits around 60% more carbon dioxide during manufacture than the ground screw. In addition, both concrete supports and concrete slabs require much more work than ground screws. The ground screws are screwed directly into the ground without you having to dig or transport large amounts of concrete. In addition, the installation of ground screws from Stop Digging affects your garden minimally.
Today we are used to the fact that what is good for the environment usually costs a little more, or takes longer. However, this is not the case when choosing a ground screw from Stop Digging. It is an alternative that is faster to install and more environmentally friendly than the concrete alternatives.
Environmental friendliness is more than just waste sorting and recycling
Swedes build a lot in their gardens in general, it can be about smaller balconies and storage but also larger garden rooms and carports. Even if an individual’s actions does not hugely affect the environment, it is still always best to choose the most environmentally friendly alternatives. With a ground screw from us at Stop Digging, you can take on your construction projects without compromising the environment. In addition, we take care of the assembly for you and then you can start building immediately afterwards.
The ground screws do not leave a lot of soil behind, which means that less transport is required, for example in moving and disposing of excavated soil. Transport also has a significant impact on the environment, but you do not have to travel back and forth when choosing a ground screw from us. We have them with us when we arrive and since no excavation is required, we do not need to carry any soil back with us.
Ground screws are recyclable
Our ground screws are made of hot-dip galvanized steel that can be recycled. Hence, the material is not wasted when you are no longer in need of the screws. In addition, they leave very little damage to your garden, which is also positive for the vegetation and insects. If you plan to move in the future and want to be able to bring your storage or your conservatory, it is entirely possible with our ground screws. They can be unscrewed from the ground and reused, thanks to their high quality.
Sustainability is part of environmental work and by offering you high-quality ground screws, we contribute to a more sustainable future. It is wise to choose as much recyclable material as possible for all your construction projects to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
Lowest environmental impact with ground screw
Of all the options available for anchoring, ground screws have the lowest environmental impact, which makes them the best alternative. There are also many other advantages of building with a ground screw, such as that they can be mounted all year round, can withstand harsh climates and can also be installed through asphalt, stone and other ground conditions where excavation can be difficult. Stop Digging’s ground screws are CE-marked and ISO-certified so you can feel safe when using them.
Thanks to the many advantages of ground screws, there is no reason to burden the environment with concrete unnecessarily. Burial and casting of concrete takes a long time and at the same time it is stressful for the body. Save money and time while acting positively for the environment by choosing a ground screw from Stop Digging.
