The paper reviews the theoretical framework of nano-modification principles of building composites and experimental verification of these principles. The concepts of nano-modification of building composite structures are studied. The paper also suggests the conceptual model of the nano-modification from the point of view of the evolutionary model of a solid-phase formation depending on the kinetics of heterogeneous processes. The technological tools of nano-modification of building composites are substantiated. Cement-based materials are shown as an object of nano-modification. Their hydration kinetics, phase composition, microstructure, and strength characteristics are investigated. The results are analyzed based on the special performance criteria which confirm that the efficiency of cement-based materials technological cycle can be improved by nano-modification.
