We recognize homeowners are playing a growing role in many aspects of their home’s development. Choosing the right materials is a critical step in any successful project. Tradical® Hemcrete® is a renewable, healthy and cost-effective solution for forward thinking homeowners who want to combat climate change and are looking for a cost effective way of complying with evolving energy standards.

Tradical® Hemcrete®can be used with professionally-built wood frame, concrete, or steel framed standard residential construction or on more modest self-builds.

We offer valuable information for homeowners and designers unfamiliar with our healthy, renewable building materials. A little education goes a long way in understanding the outstanding benefits of these innovative materials and building systems.

Tradical® Hemcrete® is an insulation material that works in conjunction with a structural frame (normally timber) to provide a wall build system. Generally, this insulation is only used on the external envelope walls where the highest thermal insulation factor is needed. The thickness of the wall determines the design insulation value of the wall, with thicker walls providing better insulation values. Cured and dried Tradical® Hemcrete® is a vapor-permeable (Breathable) material that must pass moisture to the internal and external faces of the wall.

Our healthy building and environmentally friendly products can be used in a variety of applications.
