Achieving affordable, quality housing in Nigeria

The housing shortage in Nigeria, a country of over 200 million people, can be seen in low, middle-income residential and office spaces.

As the country’s population increases, possibilities of further strains on an already challenged housing industry can be seen hovering.

Nigeria’s housing sector has traditionally been defined by an abundance of demand and relatively limited supply, in the residential, commercial and retail spaces.

The country is currently said to have a housing deficit of 17 million and according to experts, affordable housing and accommodation must be the major drive if the nation’s housing and infrastructure sector are to deliver at the rate and scale needed to contribute significantly in curbing the nation’s housing shortage.

Ordinarily, one would assume that the surge in housing shortage automatically implies that the few available ones are of the best quality and up to standard.

However, according to data compiled by an advocacy group of built environment professionals, only in 2019, there were 43 building collapse incidents in Nigeria. Before then, the group had warned that 36,000 building collapses were waiting to happen in Lagos alone.

Out of many, the use of substandard building materials stands out as a major cause of building collapse. Often than not, due to insufficient capital, low-quality materials are being opted for in the place of good ones, only for the house to sweep off every savings for maintenance.

Low-quality materials can not withstand ecosystem occurrences such as rain and intense sunlight; they easily get punctured and can be pulled off by the wind, thereby welcoming flood in homes or spaces.

As stated earlier, affordable housing and accommodation must be the major drive if the nation’s housing and infrastructure sector are to deliver at the rate and scale needed to contribute significantly in curbing the nation’s housing shortage.

However, a salient point that is overlooked in the housing industry is the fact that affordability doesn’t necessarily mean sub-standard. Even with your two cents, securing quality building materials for your house is a possibility that Toprite Fibre Cement Roofing and Ceiling Sheets stand to project.
