The Efficiency and Low Maintenance Attributes of Concrete Domes


Are you in the market for an efficient, low-maintenance alternative living option? Concrete dome homes are structures that require far less maintenance than ordinary homes while offering safety, durability, and energy efficiency.

What is a concrete dome home?

Simply put, our homes are insulated dome-shaped structures made of steel-reinforced concrete. They are safe, long-lasting, energy-efficient, and built at a competitive cost compared with conventional construction.

Here is a more in-depth look at concrete dome homes from KingDome Builders and why a dome home might be an ideal option for you.

Strength and Durability

Our concrete domes meet the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) standard for providing near-absolute protection from various natural disasters, including tornados, earthquakes, hurricanes, and more. In a nutshell, they are virtually indestructible when faced with extreme weather conditions.

Easy to Maintain

Our concrete domes’ inherent durability nearly eliminates the need for tiresome, regular maintenance. 

A dome’s shape translates to far less surface area, often requiring as little as half or 25% of the materials needed to construct a typical home. That means fewer materials to maintain. And less maintenance means reduced costs, making it the ideal retirement property or investment.

It is Energy Efficient

A study conducted in 2016 discovered that the utility savings of a 50-foot Virginia Ellipsoid house amounted to $2,500 for over five years compared to average homes. 

A concrete dome home is a micro-energy user. It requires minimal energy to maintain a comfortable surrounding—almost three times less than conventional construction. Additionally, it takes less energy to heat or cool a concrete dome structure than a metal building or traditional home.

What Makes The Concrete Dome Home Stand Out?

A dome home is a statement property that does not resemble anything close to conventional home construction. It is not restricted by location or climate, and in terms of energy consumption, a dome home performs well in any environment.

Bottom Line

Concrete domes are used around the world because they are both efficient and easy to maintain. And because they are an ideal alternative living option for individuals of all classes and age groups, they make an excellent long-term investment.
