It is not possible to complete a construction without building materials. One of the most important points to be considered in the construction process is the selection of construction materials in a planned and disciplined way. The type of building materials is usually determined by the project architect of the building to be created. Properties such as the quality, type, number and size of the materials should be known in advance and building formation should be initiated according to this information. In addition, it is necessary to ensure that the construction materials to be used during the material selection are safe and free from harmful materials. Harmful materials are known as materials that contain harmful substances, pose a job safety risk, and contain hazardous waste. Whether the building materials contain such objectionable materials can be checked with the Material Safety Data Sheet.
Different kinds of construction materials are used for construction works. Also known as rough building material, materials such as stone, rock, clay, sand and gravel naturally occur and continue to be used frequently in the construction of buildings. In addition to naturally occurring materials, there are also many materials produced by man. These materials, which have become indispensable for building formation in two ways, are categorized in the list of building materials.
