Ever since lockdowns commenced early this year, online shopping trends have been booming. Homeowners and professionals are now working mostly from home and want to either continue with the home projects or clients’ projects they had started previously or are eager to get started on new ones.
As a result, online search and purchase trends are leaning more towards online purchasing of building materials, with key terms increasing among home renovation supply retailers.
One of the materials you can buy online is lightweight concrete panels. Keep reading to learn more about why you should buy this beautiful, modern product online.
Stay On-Trend (and Available)
Most of the population is staying home, and more time at home means a greater desire by homeowners to spruce up or renovate areas of the house, while business owners want to get moving on that construction project for their commercial space. And online trends are reflecting this! While retailers have lost considerable sales in stores, online shopping has shot up.
Designing and shopping from the comfort of home is a fairly new concept in the building industry, but it is becoming increasingly popular. With clear and simple website navigation and all the information needed at customers’ fingertips, online shopping for concrete cladding is as simple as a design idea and a few clicks.
Ease of Online Choice
Having an easily navigable website with inspiring design ideas is Dekko’s forte. With a plethora of concrete cladding options, clients and industry professionals can browse at their own leisure while easily conducting their own research on competitors to become more informed about what choices are available to them.
Particularly now that much of business is being conducted online, time management has changed. It only makes sense that flexibility is now a top priority.
Because of the freedom of online shopping, clients and industry professionals can also reach out with questions or for quotes on their own time and without any sort of sales pressure.
At Dekko, we have our full range of cladding sizes and colors readily available on our website. This includes lightweight concrete cladding and concrete inset design ideas, all suited for both commercial or residential projects. Want some inspiration?

Saves Time and Money
Clients and industry professionals don’t want to wait until they can physically get back to work to start or finish construction projects. Waiting costs time and money, and can be extremely frustrating. And the longer the wait, the more detrimental this can become. Clients have personal and financial concerns about both keeping busy and finishing their projects. Time quite literally equals money.
With online shopping for lightweight concrete cladding, time and money is saved. It’s as simple as that.
Shipping Is Simple and Effortless
Once you’ve decided on the right product for your project, whether you’re a DIYer or an industry professional managing a client’s project, shipping lightweight concrete cladding is simple and effortless. Because of the lightweight nature of Dekko’s concrete cladding, shipping nationwide or worldwide is nowhere near as challenging as it would be with other building materials.
Even when not under stay at home orders, shipping is a much simpler and more effective option for industry professionals and homeowners. Because lightweight concrete cladding can be shipped to any destination, it can be shipped directly onsite, completely eliminating the need for transportation arrangements. This also frees up time that could be better spent managing the remainder of the project.
One of the incredible benefits of lightweight concrete cladding is that it is easy to install, eliminating the need for specialized installation professionals. Panels can be cut on-site with very little mess, and installed by any contractor. This also means designers, architects and homeowners can rely on local contractors.
Easy installation means more time saved. And again, time is money! For commercial use particularly, making effective use of this time while retailers and businesses are closed by completing renovation and building projects is important. Having the product shipped and installed easily and quickly makes the job that much easier, and means you can open your store again as soon as restrictions are lifted.
You Can Get Back to Business
Above all else, everyone just wants to get back to business. But that doesn’t have to mean waiting until crisis restrictions are over. Getting back to business means planning, designing and sourcing materials. It also means finishing a job before everything gets back to normal.
Buying lightweight concrete online is not just about keeping proactive during this time, it’s also an effective tool going forward! It’s no wonder more and more industry professionals are turning to online ordering for their project needs.
