Rammed Earth Enterprises earth walls are sealed with clear, dustproof and waterproof sealant, making them maintenance free, they are also termite resistant, require no rendering, have a four hour fire rating and are load bearing and thus require no structural support.

Energy efficient climate control is achieved naturally in a Rammed Earth home as the walls have a high thermal mass, enabling them to store warmth in the winter and keep the interior cool in summer. There is less temperature variation in the home, which can eliminate the need to install or run air conditioning.

Rammed earth houses achieve a five-star rating when good solar passive is combined with the thermal mass of the rammed earth.
